here alone together
new paintings by Stella Cade
Join us Saturdays in November. The Artist will be present. Essay by Michael Davidson
You and I, sitting on the couch. I'm at one end, you're at the other. We haven’t spoken a
word in a while. The room feels silent, but it’s not really. The sounds of the building are
around us. The clock is ticking, the whir of the lights is faint. We are hearing all of this on our
own but also know it is shared experience. We are both in this air, this light, this space
You and I engaged in thought. Completely and comfortably lost in our own moment in time.
Here we are. Alone, together."
