Mindful Navigation: The POA Series

"Mindful Navigation" from The POA Series by Rhea Giffin

"Mindful Navigation" from The POA Series by Rhea Giffin

What is it?  It’s a haphazard venture into my own personal “pockets of autism” through dimensional “paintings of apples” and other playful papier mache and mixed media sculpture that loosely illustrates my poem or the other way around.  As an artist, embracing, questioning, sorting out my sensitiivities, thoughts and observations is what drives me.  For this series, Apples serve as a universally symbolic, light-hearted disguised guide for this expedition’s contemplation of complexities of thought, ironies and emotion accompanied by an occasional orange or pear.  This exhibition is in collaboration with the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture’s Art @ Work program.  Runs January 6 – March 29, 2009, 5-8 pm., Kress Gallery in River Park Square, 808 W. Main Ave., third level, Spokane, Washington, USA.  For art rental or purchase information, contact Ryanh@northwestmuseum.org A reception will be held on Friday, February 6th in conjunction with Spokane’s bi-annual Visual Arts Tour.  Hope you can attend.
