Next Wall Gallery art opening reception: Hierophany by Adrienne Elyse Meyers
Hierophany is an exhibition of new works by Houston artist Adrienne Elyse Meyers. The work, composed of a series of digitally printed photomontages, also serves as Meyers' public exhibition for her Senior Honors Thesis at the University of Houston.
In Hierophany, Meyers draws from mythology and spirituality, specifically from how these subjects portray ideas of revelation. Initiation rites, prophesies, mental and spiritual awakenings, and enlightenment experiences appear throughout cultures as a means of transforming groups or individuals and thus bringing them into a higher level of mental or spiritual maturity.
Hierophany is a term used by religious scholar Mircea Eliade to describe the link, or opening point, between the realm of the sacred and that of the profane or mortal.
During the opening reception, the University of Houston Creative Writing thesis students will hold a reading of their current creative projects. Reading begins at 7 p.m. on the lawn. The Dormalou Project mobile art gallery will be showcasing collages and poetry by Traci Lavois Thiebaud.
