Oak Ridge Art Center presents Sacred Symbols
May 3 through June 15 , 2009

The Sacred Symbols is designed to focus on the spiritual parts of life. "The idea is to build understanding and tolerance through knowledge." The exhibition will be shown May 3 through June 14, 2009. There were a variety of approaches to these spiritual parts living such as nature, family stories and traditional religion.

Kathy Seely's King of Summer (fiber, beads, etc.) is about the Green Man who was the gaurdian of the forces between mankind, nature and diety. Linda Modine's Night Flight of woven fiber was really interesting and the artist statement is wonderful. Mignon Naegeli's Chota is a very interesting piece about an island on Tellico Lake above the ancient townhouse site. Peggy Heddleson's Give Me Flowers was one of her wonderful banners.

This is a very interesting and personal exhibition that is neat to see.
