One People, Many Paths

Once again I am participating in One People, Many Paths; The Sacred Art of Altars. This exhibition and auction features over 50 artists working in a wide diversity of media. Each artist is supplied with a handcrafted wooden box to transform into an “altar” focused on whatever matters to them – personally, artistically and/or spiritually.  The altars are auctioned off to benefit Celebration Circle, a local spiritual community.

This is one of my favorite exhibitions, because I enjoy taking the time to think about what matters to me and I enjoy seeing the work of the other participating artists.  The altars will be on exhibit and available for silent auction bids throughout September during normal business hours.  The closing reception will take place on Thursday, September 29 from 6-7:30 pm.
It will be a fun evening, featuring live music, light hors d’oeuvres, final bidding and the official closing of the month-long silent auction. The reception will be followed by a special screening of Joe vs. The Volcano (1990), a delightful film with a funny, insightful look at purposeful living with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. This is a wonderful opportunity to mingle with the artists and enjoy the show. Tickets for the closing reception are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. There is no charge to view the exhibit during the theater's normal business hours. For more information, contact Celebration Circle.
