January/February 2020: Winter Wonders

Submissions begin - October 1, 2019

Winter is the season of contrasts: dark/light, hot/cold, intimacy/isolation, closure/rebirth.  For those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, it is the coldest, darkest season, but also the wondrous time when we welcome the solstice and the sun’s gradual return.

It is days rich with striking juxtapositions.  Grey skies offer brilliant crystalline glints when the sun peeks through.  Bundling with loved ones near the fire, hot drink in hand, warding off the frigid chill.  The explosions of the colors and sounds of holiday celebrations abound alongside the still, monotone landscape of a field.

 Meanwhile, Mother Nature is providing for her animals and plants, assuring them (and us!) that spring is just around the corner.

Coordinator: Linda Hughes and Jeanie Pawlowski
