SISTERS OF THE MOON

October 15, 2016 - January 8, 2017, 2nd Floor Gallery

Curated by Joey Yates

Sisters of the Moon features artists who investigate ideas related to mysticism and mythology, illuminating the creative spaces where female identity, artistic practice and spirituality converge. Rooted in the ancient belief that women more fully embody the generative forces of nature, possessing a greater connectedness to the surrounding environment, this exhibition provides a unique setting for art exploring the poetics of nature and the feminine divine.

 

Working through diverse media including painting, drawing, collage, video, photography, ceramics and installation, the artists in Sisters of the Moon examine alternative spiritual perspectives that connect to nature and the cosmos, as well as the historical aspects of goddess spirituality, meditation, herbalism, fortune telling, and other associations with ancient wisdom and superstition. The exhibition confronts a wide range of approaches and issues involving these themes, representing both personal and communal beliefs.

 

Artists include: Laura Donefer, Evie Falci, Lauren Fensterstock, Chitra Ganesh, Elizabeth Insogna, Klara Kristalova, Kathleen Lolley, Maidens of the Cosmic Body Running, Katarzyna Majak, Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz, Connie Roberts, Kiki Smith, Renée Stout, Anasazi Thomas, Lina Iris Viktor, and Saya Woolfalk
