“Aging Joan of Arc,” silverpoint and silverleaf on panel by Lauren Redding

Menduina Schneider Gallery, 366 West 7th St. in San Pedro, will host a solo exhibit of work by artist Lauren Redding entitled Of Silver and Sword through the month of October. The gallery will host an opening reception on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 6pm.
Jorge Schneider, who co-owns the gallery with his wife Alejandra, explained that the show’s title is significant to the artist’s life and experiences.
“The show’s name she so carefully chose is no accident,” he said. “Of Silver and Sword depicts her work to its very foundation. Silver is the dream of so many explorers and adventure tales throughout the centuries, and the sword is the weapon of endless mythological heroes and heroines.She seems to bestow such honor to all members of her family, whom, in her view, became the archetypes described by Carl Jung. She understands the hero’s journey and the purity of it as much as the terrors hidden in it. To live is to plunge in life itself, and to undertake the road to your life, you must be open to stare into the abyss with your sword and your armor.”
