Megan Steusloff: Art Exposes the Soul

The spring issue of Stone Voices features a short essay by Megan Steusloff: The Journey.

I believe that endless fear and enormous demands are felt by all artists. Art exposes the soul, leaving the artist vulnerable to judgment, isolation, and ridicule. Suddenly, an artist is labeled, marked, and trapped within a certain image that they have created forever. This can be magical, and it can be painful. It can give eternal life to that emotion the artist was able to capture, and at the same time become the moment that can never be vanquished.
