Dowling, created in response to the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is showing at the Gallery at the Woody Creek Store. Dowling, a longtime valley resident, now lives in the Washington, D.C., area. Her work started in a visual journal on the night of Sept. 11, with pages literally created as the horror unfolded at the Pentagon, a mere 10 minutes from her house, and 200 miles away in New York City, where she grew up.”It was a way of coping at the moment,” said Dowling. “Keeping my hands busy and my mind busy helped control my fears, to digest those unbelievable images, to feel it, to understand it, to put my heart into all that was lost. Now, I can’t imagine not having done these.”The gallery is located next to the Woody Creek Tavern, 006 Woody Creek Plaza. For more information, call 922-2342.
