Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital presents Athena and The Healing Horse, a solo exhibition of paintings by Monica Pipia.Opening ReceptionThursday, October 25, from 5-8 p.m.,
>>from Cardinal Hill, Lexington Kentucky
In the exhibition, Pipia presents a series of paintings that trace a specific interest that the artist has in the healing power of the horse. “As friends and guides, Athena and her horse took the artist on a journey of discovery. It was a certain mastery of texture and form and feeling. These paintings resulted from a passion to uncover a vision of truth. This transmutation was a process of healing life’s burdens and hardships into a living metaphor of wholeness and completeness. Understanding oneself as a human being and horse as a manifestation of spirit takes me on a healing journey to self.” Pipia believes “healing begins when I accept the situation. I accept not with resignation but welcome the challenges life presents to me.”
This installation is at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital.
(Pipia’s sister is recovering from a brain aneurysm.)
