Debut exhibition in the ArtSpace Gallery at Jackson Flats
901 18 1⁄2 Avenue NE, Minneapolis 55418
“I went out to the hazel wood, Because a fire was in my head…”
—WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
Helga Hedgewalker, Paul B. Rucker and Roger Williamson, original founding members of the MCPA (Minneapolis Collective of Pagan Artists) have transitioned together from MCPA to the Mythic Art Circle. Moving forward, we intend to present mythopoeic and visionary art and exhibitions with a wide range of influences and intentions. Our debut exhibition in this new mode will be a 3-person show exploring mythic and symbolic aspects of the element of Fire.
The idea of Fire encompasses vision, illumination, purification, primal energy, the burning away of what is undesired, and the spark of life itself. As a metaphorical force, fire appears not only literally in torches, candles and wildfire, but also as the inner fire of self-realization, and the “force that through the green fuse drives the flower”, the animating fire of green life.
Our exhibit will present several interpretations of the symbolism of fire, primarily as paintings of various sizes, with a few mixed media sculptures and assemblages also planned.
Exhibit viewing hours: Saturdays and Sundays (November 6-26) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Viewings during the week by special appointment (contact Roger Williamson @ 612-386-1119)
