Zan Lombardo Displays Works
Works in watercolor and clay by Quaker artist Zan Lombardo are featured in her exhibit “Biggering the Cup,” May 1 through June 30 in the Barn at Pendle Hill.
Zan says of her work, “I embarked on a daily spiritual practice of pinching one clay bowl a day in August of 2010, a practice that I continue to this day.” In January of this year she began painting one small watercolor a day. “My name for this project is ‘Biggering the Cup’ and it is a direct invitation to unconditional love.”
Zan Lombardo was the Minnie Jane Quaker Artist Scholar this spring term at Pendle Hill. One of the pieces she completed during her residency is a 30-foot watercolor mural on the theme of interconnectedness and unconditional love (see image above).
How does Zan interact with the world around her? “Spaciousness is working through us. The mundane can be seen as gifts of spirit to help us go deeper, to become more spacious and able to allow spirit to flow through us like children. We must embrace the mundane reality of our world and increase our capacity to love it in all of its diversity, not in order to ‘fix it’ but in order to continue our capacity to experience spirit and grow.”Travel directions to Pendle Hill
