Here and Now

Dear Friends-

I wanted you to share with you a project I’ve been working on…I was invited to install a solo show in September, and I’m embarking on a campaign to raise the funds to present this show. I’m hoping to reach 1/3 of my final goal soon to receive matching funds from 3Arts.

Any support you can lend to the project is SO appreciated!

Unbounded Opening Tonight

Mullen_Postcard_Encaustic

 

Hope you can make it to the opening tonight of Unbound(ed) at Morpho Gallery in Chicago from 6-9pm!

“Unbound(ed)” is a juried exhibition featuring work from artists from around the country who work in encaustic. The title refers to the term “Unbound” and all of its meanings. Each artist has approached this theme in their own way, resulting in an exhibition filled with different styles, techniques and new takes on this ancient medium. Please join us!

Silence Speaks

I’d love to share some photos of the installation of Silence Speaks, my recent solo show at Morpho Gallery. Many thanks to all who showed up despite it being winter in Chicago. A very special thanks to my sister Bridget for her assistance with installation, as well as David Leigh at Morpho Gallery. So grateful to you both! Many good things have come as a result of this exhibition. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

About the exhibit:

Silence Speaks presents a collection of works by Ahavani Mullen which have evolved from a place of silence. Navigating the seen and the unseen, these pieces explore how the earth plane and the higher, inner worlds blend with each other and complete each other. The result are relatively permanent documents, those that contain not only a record of an experience, but also the lingering fragrance of an impermanent consciousness.
