‘Icons and Talismans’ by Mary Yates

Halloween has become like Christmas, breaking out of its one-day-on-the-calendar confinement with spooky activities throughout October. The Little Loomhouse has been featuring artists once a month for a while now, but decided to couple the October artist with special Halloween events that include tarot readings, palm readings and food. The photographs Mary Yates is showing keep with the theme, focusing on magic and mystery. “There are strange forces stirring,” she states, “and the cosmos is ringing with potential of things that are beyond the tangibility of the physical plane. My images are impressions of goddesses, gods and fabled creatures that entice us to an ethereal place where we can witness first hand the transformative power of the natural world.”
