THEME: Liberating Gifts of Celtic History – The labyrinth
Labyrinth Quests is excited to be hosting two events at the Harwich Cultural Center during Art Week, 2019 celebrations.
On Wednesday, May 1 at 10:00 a.m. we offer a meditative group walk focused on Celtic symbols and their importance for the labyrinth. Original banners of a selection of the many symbols with historic significance in Celtic cultures have been created in multicolored textiles by artist, Wilma Morris. They will be arrayed on the candle lit indoor labyrinth. Dr. Margaret Rappaport will facilitate an understanding of the relationship of the symbols and the labyrinth in a brief overview. Celtic harpist, Thom Dutton will play traditional Celtic music to accompany the walk. Exhibits of the artistic works of our participating artists will embrace the walk from areas of the Library surrounding the labyrinth.
On Sunday, May 5 at 1:00 p.m. there will be a similar meditative walk in the Library followed by an interactive discussion with the six artists participating with us in Art Week, 2019. They will guide us in exploring the Celtic foundations of their work. Margaret Anne Heuss exhibits luxurious shawls embroidered with classic labyrinths. The Rev. William Heuss displays painted banners depicting inspiring physical sites to which Celtic cultures called our attention. They will be hung above the labyrinth to represent the human “journey” on the spiral path. Donald Moore offers a variety of labyrinth designs showing the impact of these designs on our imaginations. Donna Tavano brings her impressive, original creations in multimedia and jewelry to Art Week.
Labyrinth Quests is pleased to be installing the art displays in the Library for the duration of Art Week, 2019. There will be ample opportunity, as well, to see the work of the six featured artists included in the labyrinth walks. All art work is original and available through each individual artist.
Please join us for one or both walks on may 1 and May 5. Labyrinth Quests invites people to cultivate the appreciation of walking the Labyrinth as meditation practice in its own right. Our goal in Art Week, 2019, however, is to open everyone to a higher wisdom that underlies creative expressions in art and music, contemplation, and the significance of Celtic cultural history. All are welcome to quietly observe or to accompany us as the group walks together on the labyrinth.
