artists are invited to consider the cyclical nature of life, death and
re-birth. As we release and move past the limitations that we create
for ourselves, we find ourselves rejoining the wholeness that is our
true Self-- we do this over and over again. To create meaning, we
identify and define beginnings, middles, endings... How does this truth
move through you? What are the catalysts and what are the effects? How
do they inform your art?
Visual artists are invited to create 1-3 pieces and exhibit them for a 3-day mini-show at the Bean & Leaf, and then possibly for the month of June at the Hygienic Art Gallery. If you have a larger number of pieces you would like to show and are interested submitting them, contact Marcy. Performance artists will have between 5 and 15 minutes to perform. Poets, musicians, dancers, actors, etc. All performers are welcome to submit a piece. As always, this is a community-centered event, designed to create a space to share the Truth within you. Emerging artists are encourage to participate!
This show was inspired by the desire to honor the process of personal transformation. Created in memory of Lenn Eller, and as a tribute to all those whose comings and goings have rendered us forever transformed.
