City Lights is committed to presenting the broad spectrum of visual expression through exhibits like “Walking With The Wild Woman Archetype” when we can present artists of diverse backgrounds, trainings, experiences, motivations and disciplines all in the same exhibit. The commonality of this exhibit is to celebrate the authentic female nature/persona of nurturer, warrior, sorcerer, the feminine ability to create something from nothing or nearly nothing), the caregiver, life sustainer, the burden bearer, the homemaker and protectress. The inspiration of the exhibit and the title comes from a book that explores the power women have and can acquire by reclaiming her authentic self which accepts the dualistic nature of the ability to be good/bad, hard/soft, beautiful/ugly, whimsical/practical and tapping into the metaphysical power that supports us, and find the community that enables us to thrive.
From Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Jungian analyst and the author and “Women Who Run With The Wolves”
“The wild woman archetype is about claiming and reclaiming power, authenticity, voice, and action in daily life. The wild woman uses intuition and inner knowing as guides throughout the cycles of life.”
Exhibitng artists: Doreen Breen, Susan Clinard, Nicloe Cyr, Marissa Ferrao, Kateleen Foy, Caitlin Iannucci, Robin Jopp Suzanne Kachmar, Abbe Miller, PJ McCreanor, Yolanda Vasquez Petrocelli, Jean Sanchez, Amanda Walker.
