MARCH FEATURED ARTIST: SHANNON BUEKER
March Hares Paintings and Clay
Rabbits have long been a favorite subject. Those ears! My first attraction came as a kid when I learnded from a Chinese restaurant menu that I was born in the Year of the Rabbit. Then in elementary school, I had the good luck to draw our school mascot, a Jack rabbit, which later became the school’s logo.
This group of rabbit paintings started as a theme for a show at the MadHatter Bakeshop and Cafe in Durham. “Alice in Wonderland,” the white rabbit, and off I went. Some of that original group have sold, and I’ve added some to this mix.
A friend pointed out that rabbits can be a symbol of listening. I like that, too.
