Windsor Art Center hosts a new exhibit "Soulful Journey"

It is hard to believe that The Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective (CTFAC), of which I am a founding member,  is celebrating a 5-year anniversary with a new exhibit that just opened March 12th at the Windsor Art Center.

The exhibit, Soulful Journey, continues through April 23, 2016.

One section of the exhibit that received a lot of attention last Saturday evening was the 20"x20" challenge. The members of CTFAC were asked to respond to the following quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (Ballantine Books, 1992):

"Tears are a river that take you somewhere. 
Weeping creates a river around the boat that carries your soul-life. 
Tears lift your boat off the rocks, off dry ground, 
carrying it downriver to someplace new, someplace better."

We had a great turnout for the opening reception on March 12
