Updated: Jan 26, 2022
Join me this Friday, April 6th, 6-8 pm at A.I.R Gallery An Evening of Stories from Ireland and India between artist/healer/wise-woman Donna Cleary and artist Jayanthi Moorthy in conjunction with the exhibition Daria Dorosh: Take Back Your Body. A discussion of the legacy of the matrifocal cultures of Ireland and India and their impact on these artists and their art. Come for an experience of the senses in taste, touch, scent and sounds. (see the similarities between the Sheela na gig and Kali below) Coming up at Mildred's Lane - I'll be a Visiting Guest Artist for the Wilding, Wasting, Workstyling session June 18-24th. There is still time to apply and entangle yourself with a dynamic pedagogic lineup of artists at Mildred's Lane including J. Morgan Puett herself, the powerhouse behind this ongoing project with Mark Dion. You will have an opportunity to harvest and process local medicinal plants while learning the traditions of wildcrafting, an ancient practice that acknowledges the necessity of respect and reciprocity between humans and the landscape, along with many projects by other artists. Donna Cleary, Daria Dorosh, Athena Kokoronis, Kristyna and Marek Milde, J. Morgan Puett, Shelley Spector, Amy Low Stein and others. (see photo of the vast landscape that is Mildred's Lane, below) And of course, Join me weekends with Spiral Herbal Remedies at Artists and Fleas in Williamsburg. Come sample a variety of healing plants, including Super Reishi Plus - a mix of 6 medicinal mushrooms that I ethically wildcrafted in the deep forest and meticulously made into a Preventative tincture. I also have a line of CBD products including tincture/oil and salves.
