Friends of Jung to hold artist talk on May 17 in Del Mar

Join “Friends of Jung” on Friday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m., at St. Peters Church in Del Mar for the last of its lecture series. The event will feature Stephanie Bedwell, an artist with more than 25 years of experience. In 2012 she received the Teaching Excellence Award from Grossmont College where she teaches Three-Dimensional Design.

In this presentation she will explore the influence of Jungian analysis on her art. The practice of Active Imagination provides context for the archetypal images that emerge.This alchemy facilitates both healing and transformation. The sculptural work that results often alludes to universal themes such as birth, death, and vulnerability. She is drawn to ephemeral materials such as beeswax, branches, and fiber, because they echo the impermanence of life. Jungian analysis has given her the tools to create work that expresses both the vulnerability inherent to the human condition and the irony of living a temporal existence. Her work is simultaneously ethereal and solid, unsound and comforting: And like life, a collision of extremes that seeks to create a poignant beauty.

Admission fees, $15 for FOJ members, $17 full-time students and seniors (65+), and $20 non-members at St. Peters Episcopal Church, 334 14th St., Del Mar, 92014. For more information on the lecture and workshop, visit
