Birthday Blues

Birthday Blues, 2020

It is a magical time of the year filled with holiday cheer, twinkling lights, and the warmth of family gatherings. But amidst the festivities, there's a special group of individuals who often find themselves navigating the challenges of celebrating a birthday during the holidays. We're talking about those who are unfortunate enought to have their birthdays overshadowed by Christmas and New Year's Eve – our forgotten friends!

At Catherine Couturier Gallery, we want to shine a spotlight on this unique group and celebrate their birthdays with a touch of humor and understanding. Inspired by the experiences of our very own artist, Patty Carroll, who celebrates her birthday on December 30th, we present to you the whimsical and relatable photograph, "Birthday Blues."

The image captures the essence of what many who are born this season feel – the challenge of finding the perfect time to celebrate when loved ones are either traveling, recovering from Christmas festivities, or gearing up for New Year's Eve. To all our friends and patrons celebrating their birthdays in the midst of the holiday whirlwind, this one's for you! We acknowledge the unique struggles and joys that come with being a forgotten friend, and we're here to make a virtual toast to you!

May your days be filled with joy, laughter, and the warmth of those who appreciate you for the amazing individual you are.

From all of us at the Catherine Couturier Gallery, happy birthday to our forgotten friends!
