“I’ve always said the fact that all women aren’t stark raving mad is a complete miracle because to live in a world where basically every bad thing that happens to you, you’ve somehow brought on yourself by being female … it’s just like, come on, man! It’s like … to the least of us, whatever is going on, it’s happening to all of us.”– Callie Khouri, screenwriter of Thelma & Louise
Yin & Yang. Each a half of the harmony of the Universe, balancing sun and moon, light and dark. An exhibit called YIN, opens Friday evening, November 9, 2018, at Hillside Studio & Gallery in Nassau, The Bahamas, and features the art of five women artists based on Grand Bahama Island—Chantal Bethel, Claudette Dean, Laurie Tuchel, Del Foxton, and Paula Boyd Farrington—display works honouring the energy of the Divine Feminine.
Works include homages to the empowerment of women as vessels of love, healing, and transformation, contemplations on reverence and wonder for Mother Nature and the feminine role as guardian of the sacred, gatekeeper to the manifest world, tributes to the wisdom and beauty of women in every phase of life, art celebrating sisterhood and solidarity, and musings on the unapologetic teeming life of nature as celebration of growing new gardens of balance and harmony.
A variety of mixed media pieces, oil paintings, assemblage, handmade paper works and sculptures, collage, and acrylic works will be exhibited beginning Friday evening, 9 November 2018. The artists will be on hand for the November 9th opening from 6 to 9 pm, along with live music by Grand Bahama jazz singer, Shelley Carey-Moxey. A walkabout with the artists is scheduled at Hillside House Gallery on Saturday, 10th November 2018, from 10 am to 2 pm. The art will be on view from 9 November to 30 November 2018.
