MASON CITY — A Prayer for the Earth, a one-person exhibition by California artist Linda Vallejo, opens at 9 a.m. Friday, April 13, in the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s Kinney-Lindstrom Gallery.
Vallejo’s artwork encompasses a vision of nature’s beauty, a concern for the environment, and a sense of the natural world’s sanctity as taught by indigenous people around the globe. She draws upon the wisdom of the native people of the Americas and her own spiritual training in those traditions.
“A Prayer for the Earth” embodies the teachings that see the integration of all things, animate and inanimate, in a single sacred cosmology.
The artist has also created a number of panoramic landscape paintings that have an almost psychedelic fervor.
The exhibit, sponsored in part by the David and Phyllis Murphy Charitable Foundation, will be on display through June 23.
Vallejo will be at the museum Friday, April 20, during MacNider: Off the Clock from 5-7 p.m. She will be available to speak to visitors one on one and to answer questions about her artwork. The event is free and open to the public.
