"This is precisely the time where artists go to work.
There is no time for despair. No place for self pity.
No need for silence. No room for fear. We speak. We write.
We do art, we do language. This is how civilizations heal."
This timely quote is from Toni Morrison passed on by the staff of The Queen's Ink, a magical art supply store in Laurel, Md. The beautiful "Night Swimming" sculpture is by Anne Rule Thompson, owner of Rivers Studio & Gallery in Harpers Ferry and member of the Over the Mountain Studio Tour.
