Provenance Center, 165 State Street, New London, CT
Thirteen artists explore the healing force of deep attention during extended periods in the creative process. Each of the Artists of Gallery One pays attention in their unique way to their own chosen interest, to their own silent voice.By dwelling in their creative process for extended periods of time, they each gain a deeper and richer understanding of the meaning in their work. If the underlying truth of existence is universal consciousness, then this is a powerful healing force. Each artist has written a brief statement about their work in this light. We invite you to "pay attention" to the work, and, if you wish, view the artists' statements in the Artists binder. . Closing reception and artists' talk on Sunday, April 6 from 1 to 4.
