British Columbia, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2013 -- VANCOUVER’S ART EVENT OF THE YEAR!
Imagine yourself in a stylish gallery filled with bold art and beautiful women. You sway to the music as you walk up to the herbal elixir martini bar and order an aphrodisiac love potion or an energy enhancing libation ... sound sexy? It will be. That’s how Women of Power hold gallery openings.
The Stewart Stephenson Modern Art Gallery at 1300 Robson Street is hosting a solo exhibit by local artist and award-winning jewelry designer Sonja Picard. Red Carpet entrance starting at 6:30 pm will launch Sonja’s 14 original paintings of Omnipotent Women and limited edition jewelry pieces. The sale of a special jewelry piece will be donated to the local charity www.beautynight.org supporting women in downtown’s Eastside.
‘My mandate as an artist is to inspire women to adorn themselves and their homes with purposeful art. Empowering oneself by viewing or wearing a sacred mantra, word or symbol that acts as a positive affirmation, elevates one’s consciousness. This collection of work is inspired by the many women who have inspired me in my life and witnessing their magical OMNIPOTENT powers.”
The ‘ Technicolor Series’ is a modern presentation of the feminine Divine, created with bright bold colors. ‘Erotic Poetry Series’ features lusty, passionate and adoring poetry, painted onto wood panels in acrylic and mix media. Limited edition jewelry pieces will be offered that are considered to be ‘Omnipotent’ talismanic pieces for women to wear.
About Sonja Picard:
Sonja Picard is considered a Renaissance woman among her peers, a visionary artist who has been creating art since 1990. Sonja works with an extensive array of mediums aside from her jewelry line; cast glass, ceramic, bronze and paintings with acrylic and mix media. Sonja’s paintings are aligned with the same intention as her jewelry, Sonja likes to call it ‘jewelry for your home’. “Sacred mantras, symbols, and Deities have an auspicious and vibrational quality that can resonate within ones environment. This idea complies with Feng Shui principals of enhancing one’s environment to higher life energy”. “I create jewelry and art that is more than simply a fashion statement or a pretty art piece on the wall, I feel strongly that what we wear and view should also touch, inspire and empower us”.
