Indira Freitas Johnson: A Gathering of Energies, Labor and Love

Indira Freitas Johnson will facilitate A Gathering of Energies, Labor, and Love presented by Cultivator at the Bray Grove Farm on May 22nd, 2-5 pm.

For the first time, she will be incorporating 3D materials into the Rangoli drawing. The artist was inspired by the philosophy of the Bray Grove Farm, a holistic Farm located about an hour south of Chicago. “Healing the Earth while providing sustenance to all creatures is the Farm’s primary belief. This philosophy and the labor-intensive nature of their work is a reminder of the Southeast Asian folk-art tradition of Rangoli drawing where a woman welcomes the day by painting a pattern on the threshold of her home. Throughout the course of the day, friends and family walk over the Rangoli, and the process is repeated the next morning.

This enduring persistence of labor and love is the impetus for A Gathering of Energies, Labor and Love. Join Indira in creating this Labor of Love that embodies wishes for the well-being of our families and communities and demonstrates our collective hopes for a peaceful world.

Please rsvp and join her on Sunday, May 22nd from 2-5pm for art, conversation, light refreshments, and a rare opportunity to tour the farm that Food and Wine magazine named as one of the best in the country. Bray Grove Farm is located 70 miles southwest of Chicago in Grundy County. To confirm your attendance and receive directions and parking information, kindly email.
