hold this space — more coming
more space, with or without more time. Consider this space provisional.
especially the relationship of its parts, which may end up depending more on the platform used to view the site than on composition of the site itself.
[An arrangement of the present exhibit that looked great in groups of 2, 3, 4, & 5 on the MacBook used in the site editing came out totally discombobulated in different ways on the iPad & windows laptop tested! Yours Crudely has no better choice than to experiment with what’s here & apologize in advance to &/or for visitors using devices that don’t do the intended arrangement justice.]=

Our featured artist: virginia alice (richardson) bodner–
whether you call her Mrs. B., Miss Virginia, Ginny Ginny, (Bathtub) Gin,
mom, nanamom, “dear,” or speak in raven-tongue–
she’s a friend of all the world, nevada born, northwest raised,
educated all over (in & out of schools); northern new mexico settled;
dedicated teacher, retired; student of nature, still; lover of the arts, ditto.
She doesn’t seem to have thought of herself as artist or poet, at least in a professional or technical sense, such makings a natural part of life to her,
like music, dance, friendship & love (in contrast to “thinking of the self”).
Her formal training was in biology, French & ‘special education,’
not in art or creative writing; yet she learned by doing & enjoying, poetry, art, in Reno, Cambridge, Paris, Texas, India, Oaxaca, Tucson, Vegas, etc.,
i.e., from Yeats’ singing school, loved examples,
as well as from feeling & doing, trying & noting,
making & sharing…with others around her.
She’s never tried to “show,” or get the work out there, however,
so Bod Library is pleased to play a role in this for you–by providing this room/ page/ &/or virtual refrigerator…for a few samples of the variety.
[There may be a few older works on the VRB Gallery page at www.bodlibrary.com. More exciting, newer ones are (or will be) on the “Art-Play” page at the new website “Celebrating Virginia…, “dedicated to her life & work: www.virginiabodner.net: https://www.virginiabodner.net/art-play/.]
[If you came from there to start with, you can probably get back to the “Celebrating Virginia…” site just by clicking your BACK button, but you can also get back to that “Art-Play” page by clicking on the website link just above the photo. If you’re going to the new site for the first time, however, click here instead: https://www.virginiabodner.net/2019/07/31/hello-world/]
