Pathways: On Reflecting, Wisdom and Meditation
Solo Exhibition – Cultivator At Bray Grove Farm
Sunday, October 16, 2022, 2-5pm
Cultivator is pleased to present Alexandra Antoine’s outdoor exhibition, Pathways: On Reflecting, Wisdom and Meditation during Bray Grove Farm’s Autumn Farm Day.
Please rsvp to email@example.com and join us on Sunday, October 16th from 2-5pm for art, conversation, light refreshments, and a tour of the farm. Bray Grove Farm is located 70 miles southwest of Chicago in Grundy County. To confirm your attendance and receive directions and parking information, kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pathways: On Reflecting, Wisdom and Meditation is a participatory art installation. Antoine uses herbal plants and portraiture collage within the pathways of a labyrinth design installed on the lee of the farm’s windbreak. Influenced by her Haitian farming ancestry and her mother’s homemade herbal remedies, the artist hopes that this new work will offer the viewer a moment for reflection and ease, create a space to practice meditation in motion, and provide acknowledgement of the ancestral wisdom and understanding that leads to internal wellness.
