I am so honored and humbled to be part of this show with so many talented women… the art was stunning… and Peggy Nichols a wonder of a woman who organized it. There was plenty of exposure and the event was well attended and several artworks sold. Overall a great show to the end. The even was planned inconjunction with the Annual Santa Fe Arts Colony art weekend.
Here is a link to the write up by John Seed on the Huffington Post. — http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-seed/oneira-i-dream-the-self-a_b_5505663.html
“… Creation of art influences could be by a particular vivid/recurring dream or a conscious dream as in imagined. The dream world of the unconsciousness mind is the most mysterious, fascinating part of our lives. One-third of our lives is spent sleeping. Nightly we dream, whether we are aware of it or not.
Women have a particular connection to the dream landscape in that women possess a natural infinity to clairvoyance, awareness, healing and intuition.
Artists have been the purveyor of dreams throughout time. It is the intent of the exhibition to explore the realm of dream, imagination and thought, through the unique vision of women artists.
Studio C Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting and emphasizing the work of women artists as a vehicle in bringing attention to the feminine characteristics and trademarks of art making. Studio C Gallery creates a space for women artists to flourish by producing one to two exhibitions per year. Each year, the gallery will present exhibitions referring to a “theme” or a “discipline”. Our inaugural year, 2013, the theme was captured in a figurative exhibition, The Disciplines: An Interpretation of the Figure by Seven Women Artists. Discipline implies study or practice. The 2014 exhibition, Oneira: I Dream the Self, the theme implies interpretation and imagination. The 2013 exhibition emphasized the practice/skill while the 2014 exhibition emphasizes interpretation/ imagination. Studio C will continue to do this series of exhibitions in this manner….”
