When you see Gish's work, you’ll understand why a group meditation is more than appropriate. Her chakra series is made up of found hubcaps, each transformed into a symbolic representation of the centers of energy in the body. ''The subject matter of chakras and mandalas is really interesting to me. Hubcaps remind me of mandalas, and one day a lightblub just went off that I could combine all of that together. One piece in the show is Chakra 7. It's the chakra on the top of your head, and people say that it's where your energy comes out and goes out to God or whatever. I painted the piece purple and then decided it needed neon for a spiritual glow.''
The opening reception is at 7 p.m. October 4. Regular viewing hours are by appointment or during 14 Pews screenings.
