For HARMONY, the annual International Women's Day Art Show at OMAH (the Orillia Museum of Art & History) I was thrilled to have my art featured on the poster and exhibition catalogue ~! Thank you so much to all the amazing women, curator Teresa Baker, the hard-working team of organizers and installers, and all the fantastic contributors who make this show a highlight of the Orillia cultural scene each year.
"Hands!" by Pegi Eyers
As much as urbanized humanity tries to deny it, all beings are subject to the laws of nature which stress that species diversity works better than homogeneity and is essential to a healthy ecosystem. The same principle applies to the human community, and with “Hands!” I have tried to convey an understanding and appreciation for cultural diversity. There are many different peoples, stories, sensibilities, colours and patterns, yet they have the potential to come together in harmony.
A collection of expressive and healing hands. Cut paper, mixed media, beads, stitching, wire, hardware, collage, handmade & textured papers mounted in a black frame. 24x30"
Pegi Eyers is also the author of Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community, an award-winning book that explores social justice, nature spirituality, the ancestral arts, and resilience in times of massive change. www.stonecirclepress.com
