Barjons Books, 223 North 29th Street, hosts local artist Karen Dunbar
” Major life changes inspire artistic direction and focus. As I face new challenges I look with gratitude to the wings that have held me aloft for many years in my work. Some of you who are familiar with me know that revelations from dreams and an Arapaho elder assisted me to recognize my spirit guides. The bison was my first spirit mentor who later passed me to his companions, those clever, michievous , mythic corvids.
At this time I felt the need to honor both my guides by pairing them in two paintings, showing both their energy and their natural serenity in harmonious contrast. They represent the yin /yang that lies in all things. My other recent images depict my winged guides more as spirit than physical entity. They are transitioning, as I am.”
