Starr Goode - Sheela Na Gig (Corte Madera)

Sunday, April 9, 2017 - 4:00pm

A quarter of a century in the making with over 150 illustrations, Sheela Na Gig, The Dark Goddess of Sacred Power has three parts: History, Journeys, Image. Nothing represents the necessity of re-imagining the female in Western culture more than the startling stone carving of the Sheela na gig displaying her vulva. Striking in her originality, the Sheela na gig is an antidote to the war on women, the war on nature, and the war on the imagination.

Starr Goode, MA, teaches literature at Santa Monica College. Producer and moderator for the cable TV series, The Goddess in Art, which is now available on YouTube. She is the author of The Art of Living: Falstaff, the Fool, and Dino. Her latest essay, "Adventures She Has Brought My Way" appears in the anthology, Foremothers of the Women's Spirituality Movement.
