    Fire In The Heart, Objects of Power and Healing, Solo Exhibition of Paintings, West African Sculpture and Photographs, Alta Bates Community Gallery, Berkeley, CA
    This comprehensive exhibition included paintings and objects from my personal collection of African Art. Each object was an example of ritual art made for gaining access to and control of the non-material world. The venue—a medical and research center—offered the opportunity to create an environment combining contemporary art with traditional forms; a conversation of expressions and creative responses aimed at finding control and comfort in our life, and of living in harmony with nature.
