Ingrid’s work will be featured along with 5 other artists at a special exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Biblical Art opening October 18, 2018. This exhibition will highlight 7 of her most iconic layered works spanning 8 years. Each piece is a jewel and several have been pulled from Ingrid’s private collection.
I was honored when asked to participate in this exhibition. I wanted them to have my best, so I borrowed several pieces from Galerie Zuger in Vail and filled in from my personal collection, special pieces that I have held for years for their special meaning to me.
The work to your left, titled Predestiny is one of the works featured in the exhibition. It is about how we come to this life with a destiny. The central figure is revealing our destiny. In the lower portion are two dolls representing two lives. The one on the left is the fighter or warrior, doing what’s right, changing the world. And the doll on the right represents the harmonious life, the mother, the nurturer. In the center of the piece is a clock, representing time; that on one hand there is a limit to how long we have, but on the other hand that it’s never too late to choose a different path.
The Dallas Museum of Biblical Art is best known for its rare religious works, but regularly exhibits contemporary artists with a spiritual element. They have expanded their venue with the belief that art, by its nature, is a spiritual endeavor. They were first introduced to Ingrid’s work in 2014, clearly impressed and have been in active communication until they were able to host this current exhibition.
There will be two private receptions with the artist in attendance:
Private Reception: Thursday, October 18, 5-8pm
Private Reception: Friday, October 19, 2-7pm
Public Viewing begins on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 10 to 3pm
