Finding Companionship in Sacred Stories
Mindy Bielas, artist

Spring Exhibit showing April 6 - June 12, 2015
Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday 9 AM - 5 PM

Exhibit Opening: Sunday, April 12 (5-7PM)

Location: Women's Resource Center Gallery | 11498 Pierce Street, Suite AA (2nd floor)
Riverside, CA 92505 (adjacent to Oasis and the La Sierra Natural Foods Market)

This collection of acrylic on canvas paintings depicts women from the Old Testament. It is a creative expression of one woman's struggle with the concept and experience of victimhood. Sacred stories are universally important, therefore informing one's understanding of relationships as well as his/her own context and selfhood. Because of their influence, we can learn from sacred stories, struggle with difficult ideas presented in the sacred stories we claim, and find companionship with characters who undergo experiences similar to our own. 
Handicapped accessible (elevator). A portion of all proceeds goes to support the programming of the WRC.
