RECENT SOLO EXHIBITS
"Telling Time: Gifts and Visions" (2007)
We live in times of escalating chaos. Indigenous elders have spoken of these times for many centuries, and are telling us with urgency that
making our way through the tougher times ahead requires remembering the original instructions. From the Arctic Circle to Australia, First Peoples
speak in one voice about honoring our Earth, understanding that everything including each of us is connected to everything else
and part of a great Mystery that cannot be contained in numbers, words, or intellect. We all have our original roots among people who
sustained our world for eons. If we can Listen, our own Ancestors can guide us now. This could be a Good time.
"Earth, Time and Light: Old Voices Speaking" (2006)
A number of Old Cultures thousands of years old, not just a few hundred years speak clearly about the present times.
My experience has been that their understandings of the world can give us very different ways of seeing and responding to what we face. We all have our original roots in these Old Cultures and when we Listen, sometimes we can Remember.
