Phyllis Thelen: Journeys of the Imagination

April 30 through June 22

Phyllis Thelen, a Marin County artist with a successful career in painting and printmaking, began making three dimensional sculptures after the tragic events of September 11.  Her little retreats, or sanctuaries, offer a symbolic place of safety and simplicity in turbulent times.  Her vessels, symbols of passage and transformation, suggest imaginary journeys of the spirit.  Her strange and wonderful creatures appear as unusual beings encountered along the way.
