Persephone: Goddess of Spring

THE ELECTRIC LODGE, VENICE CA 

March 20th, 2014.

Spring is a time to emerge from the incubation of  winter. With all creation stories, there is a story for the seasons. In ancient Greek mythology, lies the tale of Persephone, Daughter of Demeter  was stolen by the God of Hell to the Underworld, a land like winter. As a female artist, I look to the symbolism and mythos for inspiration for my art. 

Artists and vendors include: Constance Brantley, Racquel Honroe, Terry Marks-Tarlow, Heather Robinson Teran, Elise Wehel, Sunny Bak, Marlena E. McClain, Kurisutein Tanagi Lopusnak, Agne Skaringa, Eco Cork, Fahmina's Eco Leather Handbags.
