It seems second nature for people everywhere to offer each other small gifts, tangible and intangible — food, gestures, music, laughter…
Many are also inclined to lay offerings down in their environment, for receipt by the non-human dwellers in the surrounding world — visible and invisible.
Sometimes the offerings are so subtle that they go unnoticed by anyone else nearby; the silence of the exchange making it all the more heartfelt.

Laurie Goodhart Artist Bio Laurie Goodhart has been painting and working in mixed media for 40 years. A prolific and multi-faceted artist, her work is in hundreds of private collections throughout North America, as well as a smattering in Europe and India. Since 1989 she has simultaneously operated an organic goat cheese farm, which both imbues and interrupts the artwork.
“Backstage of the overt activities of both painting and farming, I am sifting through the remaining evidence of ancient worlds – how people of lost cultures met their basic survival needs and how they responded to the universal human urge to create beauty, meaning and story. It’s a scavenging for resonant clues about where we might have been before taking the particular forks in the road which led to where we are now.”
