Winter Solstice Art Exhibit
CALL FOR ART
Winter Solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year. Its place on the calendar heralds that part in the cycle where the sunlight begins increasing once more.
Our ancestors celebrated this annual event by burning the Yule log, drinking Gluhwein and
gathering in candlelight for song, dance and prayer. The abundance of the Harvest had to sustain them through the long winter months until spring, when seeds were sown once more. At first glance, Winter Solstice was very much a celebration of the physical: soil, water, seeds, nature's elements. It was this and........ever so much more.
Winter Solstice is also a metaphor of one's life; a time of reflection; meditating on the darkness which seems unending - yearning to bask in the light; a time to release those things which no longer serve a purpose - making room for the new; a time to honor the ancestors - the ancient ones who still show us the way if we, but, pay heed; a time of renewal, setting intentions, assessing personal integrity and swearing oaths; a time of transformation.
