“Today we have more distractions than ever. We cannot drive our cars without the cell phone going off. We spin about controlled by our phones, social media, streaming news flashes and noise. We are being stressed like never before and it seems difficult to change our trajectory.
But there is Nature. Nature who can calm us down and defrag us with her beauty and acceptance. Coming back to nature is being centered. You remember it from before technology. You remember that you liked walking in the woods, discovering a new plant, hearing a new bird. You like when the woods bloom in spring and the fragrance travels on the wind. It makes you quiet again.
Creativity happens when we are quiet. It is an in-the-moment activity, a meditation. It is where inspiration is born. Where an ordinary object becomes fascinating. Where the shadow of a tree has a whole world inside it. Where animals have personalities and magic becomes possible.” – Tom Tartaglino
Our events are free and open to the public. Art on the Trax is located at Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Old Crozet Train Station, at 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.
