Musing the Goddess – The Art of Greg Spalenka
Saturday, June 20, 2015 – 7-10 pm
7:30 Lecture – 8:30 Book Signing – 9:30 Drum Circle
Join us for a Summer Solstice Art Opening at the Cornell Winery. The festivities will include a multi-media lecture on Spalenka’s art career in publishing and film, a book signing of the newly published, “The Art of Greg Spalenka, Visions from the Mind’s Eye” (Titan Books/London), a Drum Circle (bring your drums!), and other special treats.
The walls will be filled with new mixed media creations and some classics that celebrate the Goddess in all her mysterious and divine glory. Some of these are large pieces (up to 6 feet tall) with gold and silver leaf. It has been awhile since I had a one person show. Feels good to be painting and getting my hands in it again.
I am the Sun, represents the shift from a patriarchal, male dominated world view to a more feminine and holistic one. The sun is generally associated with masculine attributes, but with the Goddess rising in the world’s consciousness, the female population is embodying this powerful symbol of light, life and energy in their minds, bodies, and spirit.
“Nature’s Graces” (almost finished) will also be in the show, 38″x43″ mixed media, acrylic, oil, varnish, on vinyl. Gold leaf will be added in the next phase. This art reflects the three graces of antiquity connected to nature. Charm, beauty, creativity dancing together upheld and nurtured by a common spirit. Timeless elegance with a nod to Raphael.
