Fearless Flying in 2016! coincides with the commemoration of the 15th year since the tragedy of 9/11. On 9/11, Marian Osher’s flight from Amsterdam to the US was detoured to Halifax, Canada. She was afraid to fly for three years. Her in-flight fascination with the textures and abstractions of the earth and clouds inspired her to create colorful mixed-media paintings and wall hangings that helped her to overcome her fear of flying. With honesty and humor, she also shares the personal experiences that contributed to her fear, including her 9/11 flight experience, as well as the various “tools” that enabled her to return to flying without fear.
“I hope that Fearless Flying in 2016! will offer viewers an opportunity to explore feelings about flying, to share them with others, and to acquire useful tools for facing and overcoming other fears.” Marian Osher
