explore the lives and expressions of witches, real and imagined
Event Details: Opening Reception Thursday, Oct 11, 2012, 7-9pm
Exhibition continues to November 16, 2012
This exhibit consists of seven oil portraits of witches: contemporary, historical, real and imagined. The artist has taken a close look at the lives and expressions of archetypes and individuals who were labeled, portrayed, or identified as a ‘witch’. Beginning with Agnes Moorehead’s wonderfully acerbic “Endora’ in Bewitched, the paintings grew to include; Margaret Hamilton’s quintessential Wicked Witch of the West, Billie Burke’s Glinda, the Good witch of the East, Bridget Bishop, the first woman hung in Salem, Massachusetts during the witch hysteria of 1692, Doreen Valiente, Fifties witch and pioneer of modern Wicca, contemporary Salem psychic and witch Lori Bruno, and Toronto witch, Nicole Cooper. These new pieces ask us to examine our own feelings about the differences between the stereotypes and realities of these seven women.
