February: Marcia Steckler

Opening: Friday, February 1st

Marcia Steckler 2  Marcia Steckler Marcia Steckler palette painting

After retiring from a career spanning nearly three decades as a French teacher, Steckler began taking studio art classes at the River Gallery School where Ric Campman, among many inspiring instructors, helped her to see the world anew and to find extraordinary beauty in the commonplace. This poem emerged with her paintings of lumber trucks.

Mill Bound

The cortege moves from High to Main,
ponderously majestic,

cold metal torn from the groaning belly

of the land

cradling centuries untold that rose above

earth’s garment
of mingled mountain and leaf,
touching the sun and prying apart

deep granite
seams of life-giving water

where upland winds carried their scent along steep slopes,
bearing the snow that embraced their final arc toward earth,

enshrouding still
their journey
toward the river’s edge.
Skin upon skin, life upon life,
man in the middle,
the lumber truck breathes
slowly away
bearing a crescent cross.
