Dallas Museum of Biblical Art Exhibition

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

If you’d like to attend one the private receptions, you will need to RSVP by October 10, 2018 to Galerie Zuger Vail, either by email: art@galeriezugervail.com or by phone: 970-476-5619

Public Viewing begins on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 10 to 3pm

Texas Welcomes Ingrid’s Work With Great Enthusiasm

Sometimes you have to leave to come home…

Ingrid was born and raised in Dallas, Texas.  She left as a young adult to pursue life in Europe, New York and later Aspen.  But Texas never forgot her.. or her talent.  In October of last year, well known Houston art lover and philanthropist, Carolyn Farb, commissioned Ingrid to do an altar for her home.  Creating a commissioned work of art is certainly a challenge, but an altar is so personal and spiritual, it brought the experience to lofty heights.

Cherished-Echoes-from-Afar36x59-rt-angleIngrid worked on the piece for over six months and the results are nothing less than stunning.  The journey not only produced a spectacular work of art, but also a deep artistic connection between the two women.  The altar was installed in mid-April and Carolyn and Ingrid met each other for first time in person, but also as long time kindred spirits.

On April 15th, Carolyn Farb generously opened her home to honor the new installation.  Friends and art lovers from  Aspen, Houston and New York City came to the event to share her enthusiasm.  Enjoy the photos from the event.

Warmest thanks to Carolyn Farb for her love of art, generous spirit, and hospitality!
