Heart of Healing Gallery Presents: Healing Angels, Guardians of the Spirit

Follow the Wind Zheng Qiuna

Dr. Christi Bonds is both a dear friend and a member of our Fiber Focus Group. HeART of Healing Gallery, an extension of her alternative health practice, has a new show focusing on angels. Her announcement follows below. The gallery is located in the heart of Paducah's Lowertown Artists neighborhood. View past posts for more information on HeART of Healing and its place in Lowertown.

Come see our exciting Holiday Exhibit!
Healing Angels: Guardians of the Spirit
November 15, 2008 to January 15, 2009

Take a look at much of the exhibit ONLINE.

There are three portions to the current show:
  • Artwork created by artists in the greater Paducah area that relates to the subject of "Angels" from sublime to loving to their less known shadow side (be sure to take a look at the work of Frieda Fairchild, Erich Neitzke and Randy Simmons for this different perspective).
  • Next we have a fine collection of molas (fiber art made and worn by the Kuna Indians of the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama) that contain angels in various forms as well as scenes of the Nativity. These blouses take weeks and even months to make, and are truly soulful works of art.
  • Finally, there is an interactive display on which we can all practice our healing creative energies in Teri Moore's traveling project of Art Blocks (funded by a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women).

Both the Nancy Calcutt Studio and Aspire ArtsStudio & Gallery have shows this month featuring Nancy's shamanic angelic presences and Janet O'Rourke's fairies, so a trip to Lowertown Paducah can be a Heavenly Experience in more than one gallery!

There are cookies, chocolate and tea to enjoy while you explore HeART of Healing Gallery, so please come see us this Holiday Season! We are open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment.
