Please join us this Saturday August 22, 2015, between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. for the gala opening of our dear friend Marianne Tebbens and her “Body of Work.”
“My work in clay has evolved over many years from mostly functional pieces, with the vessel as the predominant form, to mostly sculptural pieces, with the human face, hands, torso and elements of nature as the predominant forms. This evolution has occurred in conjunction with my work as a Psychotherapist and Art Therapist, as well as through my own personal growth experience.
I feel especially drawn to expressing what I see as the dangers and risks to the feminine in our culture at this time. These themes are often expressed through my work with larger, idealized feminine figures with goddess-like qualities.”
Spirit is enlivened by imagination manifested through human greatness. To excel in something beyond the norm brings great joy to the Self and, in turn, expands the deep numinous quality residing within. To stand silent before these images, taking in all that they can offer you, is a meditation unto itself. Although I speak highly of my friend and her work it is not lost on others who have that same experience. For it is Love in the hands and heart of this artist that truly shines through. Please come and join us this Saturday August 22nd, from 1-4 p.m. The exhibit runs through September 19, 2015.
