Heron Dance, North Ferrisburgh, VT Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement Heron Dance was created as an expression of gratitude for the gift of life and the beauty and mystery of the natural world. It started out as a newsletter and evolved into a publisher of books, note cards and calendars based on the art and writing of Roderick MacIver. In late 2011, Rod moved to a deep cabin in the Adirondack woods and is focused on the creation of The Heron Dance Book Arts Collection, a full color, limited edition artist book featuring art and words inspired by his life in the woods.
Early each morning (about 4am) we send our free email, A Pause for Beauty, to Heron Dance subscribers. Each e-journal features a painting and reflection on the gentle arts of a well-lived life, as seen from the periphery, from the perspective of an artist and lover of wild nature living deep in the woods. A Pause for Beauty is a first draft in e-journal format of The Heron Dance Book Arts Collection. This collection is based on A Pause for Beauty, but is prepared after a period of reflection on the writing, poems and art in the daily e-journal.
You can become a subscriber and receive A PAUSE FOR BEAUTY, or read more about THE HERON DANCE BOOK ARTS COLLECTION, through links on the Imagekind home page.
