Offerings Solo Exhibition at Chroma Projects / by Susan Jamison

My exhibition "Offerings" opened at Chroma Projects in Charlottesville, Virginia on April 7 and will run until April 29, 2017. This exhibition features egg tempera paintings and an installation piece which examine the relationship between the feminine and nature, rituals, and the aging mother earth depicted as a mystical crone.

Sanctuary for the Crone is an installation project I created as part of "Offerings." It is a space veiled by silk organza exclusively for the older woman who is invited to enter, sit at a desk, and write a piece of her wisdom into one provided journals.

On April 15th Chroma Projects hosted myself and Beatrix Ost for a salon style conversation with the community on recognizing the gifts of grace, insight, and cultivation in creative aging women.
