“It Could Mean Everything”
Artist: Tracy Fillion
Medium: Embroidery on linen

Artist Statement:

For this piece I chose an excerpt from Mary Oliver’s poem “Invitation” (2009).

These past few years the words embroidered here entered my mind often, and seemingly, when I needed them most.

For me, they remind me to be present, look at the sky, appreciate the plants, listen for birds and bugs, and to seek laughter.

These words may mean something different for you. My hope is that they help people to find a moment of peace, feel their feet on the earth, hear a bird song, and appreciate a fresh breeze.
