BARRE — Now through August, the Barre Opera House features a playful, cosmic art exhibit by Calais resident, Kelley Hunter. Poster-sized images from Hunter’s recently published ‘Planetary Gods and Goddesses Coloring Book’, shown both in black-and-white and as colored by participants in local workshops, introduce viewers to our expanding solar system. Recently astronomers have been discovering many small, icy planetoids in the far solar system, near and beyond Pluto. Many are being named for indigenous creator gods from cultures around the world. “I am excited to show people, especially kids, about our new solar system neighbors and their stories from around the world,” said Hunter, an internationally-respected astrologer and mythologist.
“The sky is reflecting our increasing awareness of global inter-relatedness.” The lobby gallery is open weekdays, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.. Pick up a free illustration to color, bring it back and add your image to the show. A Meet-and-Greet with the Artist will be held on Friday, August 11 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Coloring books and pages will be available, and are carried by local area bookstores and online.
