Professional photographer Cindy Pavlinac has dedicated herself to exploring sites of ancient wisdom and community. She works intuitively using the camera as her tool to communicate the beauty, mystery, and power of place.

Labyrinths largely influence her work, both in the metaphor they represent and the grace of their simple geometry. Journeys of Renewal: Contemplative Photography will include images of local and historic labyrinths as well as other places of great presence, and the gallery floor will be transformed into a walk-able labyrinth installation.

“Labyrinths have woven a meandering path through the human psyche for thousands of years,” Cindy says, “and are often at the heart of the quest for self-knowledge, awakening, personal integration, community building, and transcendence. These single pathway designs engage the body while freeing the mind. They symbolize the journey of life in that the physical turnings of the path, alternating right and left, shake loose what no longer serves. The center point invites pause in a state of balance. The return journey offers new perspectives, insights, and hope.”

In addition to her images of labyrinths, Journeys of Renewal: Contemplative Photography will feature other pictures of sacred spaces that invite reflection and provide viewers moments of quietude. It will also include a selection of Cindy’s newest body of work: colorful, abstracted photos of water and nature printed on metal.
