Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Salem Fine Arts Center

Winston-Salem artist Amy Funderburk will exhibit new works from her visionary series, Images From the Otherworld. Through these paintings and accompanying photographs, she depicts her extraordinary experiences at sacred sites in Ireland and South of England, as well as imagery derived from meditation. In these works, she explores the role of art, belief, and the power of positive thinking on the healing process. A connecting theme that runs throughout the series is the cycle of creation and destruction, of death and rebirth, and the healing that lies between. Visitors may bring either strips of paper or 100% natural cloth to tie to the wishing tree which will be part of the exhibit. Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday and 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Reception to be held April 6 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center.
