Nancy Lovendahl & Deborah Fox at Blue Sage Gallery
This emotive and moving show will run through June 19th
By Julie Pilner
Nancy Lovendahl explains that, “My recent work is focused on investigations of the mental constructs of cultural division.” This is not surprising, considering that her sculptures are exhibited around the world. Her work can be found in both public and private collections and in museums such as The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, the Red Gate Gallery in Bejing, China, and in the historic Keramikmuseum in Germany. When she is not winning awards—which are numerous, exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally, or teaching and lecturing, she can be found in Old Snowmass with her husband and her dog and cat.
Nancy Lovendah will give an Artist’s Talk, “Small Glimpses, Many Times,” at Blue Sage, June 7 at 6-8 pm. The talk is a reflection of her current body of work and the title of her current exhibition. She explains it thus: “What we see with our eyes is only transformed and understood as truth by our minds. This exhibition is an invitation to view this phenomenon as a metaphor for the conflict between perception and reality that divides us from each other.
Deborah Fox says that her paintings are divinely inspired. “They are an expression of my soul and their messages are both personal and universal. As I move beyond the illusion of duality I am able to embrace my freedom and the divine light that shines from within. These paintings are my emergence into a new reality that I choose to share with you.”
Deborah was born to survivors of the Holocaust. “I carried energetic patterns of grief and trauma from my lineage.’ As a result, her life “was consumed with fear, abandonment, betrayal, deceit, loss and despair.
“I was trapped in a prison of anguish and spent my life searching for meaning. Ultimately I embraced my vulnerability. I woke up to the realization that I had the key to my freedom. I shifted the focus to my heart and found peace in service to others. Life came together as a piece of art skillfully designed by me, for me.”
Trained in multiple healing and coaching modalities, she provides unrivaled support when it is needed the most. Deborah looks forward to you stopping by the Blue Sage Gallery to witness her unfolding.
