Shamanic art showcased

Elizabeth Carefoot draws inspiration from Siberia and High Plains tribes

Motivated by her grandmother’s shamanic stories, multi-disciplinary Crescent Beach artistElizabeth Carefoot continues to create an ever-growing body of shamanic artwork drawing on various cultural traditions.

Her new show, Spirit Hunters, running from Oct. 3 to 30 at Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72 Ave.) is an exhibition and sale of robes – utilizing canvas, bone beads, wool, buttons, shells, leather, goat fur and metal objects – along with painted acrylic portraits, portable altars, decorated bottles and sacred scrolls.

All represent aspects of Carefoot’s exploration of shamanism, particularly that practiced by the Siberian people and the North American High Plains tribes.

“The art is full of personal symbolism,” Carefoot said in a press release.

“The combination of the secret and theobvious gives double layers of meaning.

Opening reception takes place Saturday, Oct. 3, 1-3 p.m., at the centre, and Carefoot will also conduct an artist in residence program there on Saturday, Oct. 17, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to noon Sundays. The gallery is closed on Monday.
