LEAH WALDO

 

New Dawn

 

Wine and light refreshments will be served.

Leah Waldo creates as a way to process and express her life experiences, drawing inspiration from her poignant experiences in nature. An abstract travelog of a lifetime of deep feeling and mindful healing, her sculptures are monuments to the human capacity to heal and honor all those who are on their own path of healing. New Dawn offers viewers a multisensory experience of the fresh energy that flows from a renewed life, the beauty that can be found in recreating life after loss.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: 

I consider my work to be distilled landscapes - the essence of physical and emotional landscapes infused into an object. Each piece is a little pocket universe, a soft invitation for the viewer to simply inhabit that emotional space and the spirit of raw, pristine nature. Because of my intention, history, and instincts as a healer, the objects and experiences I create are healing spaces. These pieces are invitations to share intimate moments of my life, instances of clarity, and glimpses of pain, with my steps always moving toward healing.

CELIA REIGLE

 

Out of my Mind

 

Wine and light refreshments will be served.

Gushing and trickling out of Celia Reigle's mind, this body of work is a story never told before about the search for freedom, of welcoming accidents and giving up control of one's thoughts. "Ideas don't inspire me," she says. Textures, colors, images and what people live and see are her main source of inspiration.

Like a dance with mystery, beauty and strength, Out of My Mind invites you to see with different eyes. It is created the same way one can discover it: Suddenly! Something happens when you decide to let go and search behind for what is alive. 

Celia Reigle migrated to Oregon from Havana, Cuba alone as a teenager, proclaiming it the "biggest adventure of my life.” Now, her imagery takes you there, into a space where anything is possible, without boundaries or rules, where you no longer need to be in your mind...
