Bill Forester: Facing Forward

JUNE 3 - JULY 2, 2016

Six years ago, a stroke robbed artist Bill Forester of his voice, but his need to communicate and be understood remained. Forester found ways beyond words to give him a broader and more nuanced language of creative expression. Through painting the self-portrait, Forester has found his voice. This show represents a passage through the threshold of recovery and celebrates life and love as Forester “faces forward.”

Opening Reception: Friday, June 3 from 7-9 pm

ARTIST STATEMENT

My stroke took my voice away August 17, 2009, but it didn’t rob me of my need to communicate and be understood.

Instead, I found ways beyond words, ways that have given me a broader and more nuanced language of creative expression.

This show lets me share my new tools of expression in the hope that other victims of stroke – and anyone in need of healing – may find a similar way home. More selfishly, this show helps me to pass through a threshold of recovery, to express my gratitude for a life I love and to face forward fully and creatively self-expressed.
