& Opening & Closing Receptions
The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, fabric art and installation. Life Force Arts Foundation Executive Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's been fascinating seeing the interpretations artists have about this theme. From tribal Warriors to a child walking a picket line, from a Mother being both Warrior and Companion to her children to abstract renderings of mythical heroes, this show expands our understanding of these powerful Archetypes."
The Companion & The Warrior is the third a series of shows called Life Force Wheel. This year-long, six show series of art exhibits and multiarts presentations explores the deep Archetypes of human existence. The Life Force Wheel is a spiritual teaching based in ancient, universal wisdom, received through inspiration by modern shamanic practitioner Joan Forest Mage. The Wheel is based in a deep awareness of our unity with all beings, and seeks to foster healthy relationships between the individual, human society, nature and the spirit realm. The six show series began on December 8, 2013 with the Teacher Archetype and concludes in January 2015 with the True Self Archetype. All shows will be held at Life Force Arts Center, 1609 W. Belmont, Chicago.

There are ten Archetypes on the Life Force Wheel. Each is a role which contributes to the harmony between the individual and the Web of Life. The Life Force Wheel series of shows will include art exhibits, performances, poetry readings, workshops, lectures and other events to help the audience gain the wisdom of each Archetypal energy.
