Jude Cowell

Lifelong artist, Jude Cowell, currently works primarily in oil and watercolor pencil on paper. This Georgia native's drawings may be viewed online at Cosmic Persona Designs Art Gallery, and at Dreamyfish Art, where postcards and limited edition prints are available upon request. Cosmic Persona Designs is a collection of archetypal feminine images, cosmic-visionary art (some from an earlier series, Children's World), children's art, and more. An astrological influence is apparent, for Jude has been a serious astrology novice for 10 years, and is writer and publisher of the Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington. Dreamyfish Art is a gallery of Saturn's realism--botanically-drawn tropical fish portraits--blended with Neptune's watery, illusory qualities--a combination which neatly describes the artist's natal Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces personality. Fish dream, too, and here you may have a sneak peek into their most favorite and secret dream locations undersea at Dreamyfish Art. Several moons ago, Jude was an art student at Atlanta School of Art (now College of Art) on Peachtree Street, and even now you may detect a Fashion Illustration, Layout, and Design influence in her work, especially in the Cosmic Persona Designs collection. You never know what might show up at Cosmic Persona, but you are cordially invited to stop by when you can...and remember that fish dream, too!

Wishing Peace, Love, and Art to All,

Ahhhh... the bio thing. I dread those. Usually I prefer to let the "work" speak for itself.

Antero Alli

I don't see myself as an artist. The self-proclaimed "artist" is a delusion; that title is for others to decide. I see myself more as a kind of accidental agitator. I do not agitate on purpose. I am no narcissistic provocateur out to get society's goat nor am I some infantile nihilist raging against "the man" or "the machine" (unless Stupidity can be found in a man or a machine). My agitating is more a gut response to being agitated. I am agitated by the bone-crushing, soul-deadening mediocrity disguised as "Art" produced by any individual, any group, any society still wallowing in its own tragic loss of imagination. My aim is to agitate Imagination, the chief inlet for Soul in this era.

Marjorie Kaye

is an artist residing in Salem, Massachusetts who graduated from Syracuse University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting cum laude. She is best known for her colorful, detailed mandala drawings and has exhibited these in many galleries and shows nationally. She is also the owner and operator of the on-line Caladan Gallery, which exhibits artists from around the world, as well as being the newly appointed director of Gallery 181 in Lawrence, MA, a contemporary, alternative space. Her drawings resonate from the center and draw the energy outwards. The forms are influenced by nature, geometry, music, and are also influenced by the artwork of many ancient cultures. The pieces, stemming from the symmetrical perfection of the traditional mandala, alter considerably from the form, injected with a subtle shift of content and direction that throws them off-center in their own revolution.

She feels that the opportunity for spiritual manifestation through art is limitless. “Art is life celebrated in matter.” She also is influenced and draws images she has called “Social Surrealism”, attending to the “little sticks in our pathways, and sometimes the boulders!”

“Regardless of the follies of mankind, I celebrate the boundless range of elemental combinations present in the universe. From basic substances of matter emerge presences of infinite variety that take form as planets, comets, stars, trees, human-kind, and other celestial travelers. This is a manifestation of the creativity of spirit. This is present and reflected on all levels of being. It is with this observation that my drawings are made.”

Bartley Keith

the Surrealist & Magic Realist, considers the True Function of Art to
be a Mind-Opening and Spiritual Practice expressed by the artist and explored by viewers. In some ways Art is an Alchemy Tool of large or small transformations, with abilities to see the world in new ways and open minds, revealing personal insights about the self and nature of reality into our conscious minds.

The Artist spent over 20 years producing Realist Artworks for a general audience and has sold Originals & Limited Edition Prints into over 500 homes in Ohio with many repeat buyers. The artist has finally decided to concentrate on doing the Art he loves, sees, and creates within his own mind's eye -usually Surrealism & Magic Realism.

Tiptoeing through darkness, searching for scandal, hiding warts that defy logic.
My license to steal has expired. The key to longevity is procrastination.
Curiosity killed the cat, for awhile I was a suspect.
Not calling for revolution, evolution,creative design, creative differences,memory lapses, forgetful forgers,hysteric historians, libeling libertarians,systematic scientific sectarians,egalitarian elucidators of educational egress.

Kenneth Shapley

This story is an extract from Kenneth Shapleys new novel “When We All Dream Together” available online at www.lulu.com/kenscreations All copyright rights including adaptation for screen belong to Kenneth Shapley.

Kenneth Shapley is a writer, artist, didgeridoo teacher and healer living in Edinburgh. Since an early age he has enjoyed a vibrantly lucid dreaming life. In July 2003 a recurring dream came to him. He wrote it down and just kept on writing. What evolved over the next two years was the novel “When We All Dream Together.” It follows the exciting story of thirteen dreamers around the world who are guided one by one to a magical dream grove by a telepathic tribe of great black cats. Here they meet dream wizards Marlo Timpani and Wee Min who instruct them in the ways of lucid dreaming. Through the magic of sacred geometry, light and sound they become the last dream tribe. Their mission is to share soul wisdom through their dreams and if they can believe in their dreams find each other in waking life. The book sows the seeds for how a dreaming revolution may happen. The book is set in the present with its climax in 2012.

Gaelin Meyer

I initially started making art as a means of working through all the baggage that I picked up during my childhood. Art as therapy was a very important part of my healing process. I am self taught, dropped out of high school despite being of above average intelligence, and managed to walk into a job teaching art at a local primary school at age 19. Anybody who has taught kids (especially within the constraints of post-apartheid South Africa) knows how exhausting it can be. During this time I didn't focus very much on my own work. I had two little ones of my own, and played with art in my spare time. I also began exploring music. My dad played in a bluegrass band, and I grew up going to gigs with him. Writing music also became a from of therapy. Poetry put to song.

I am now approaching my thirties. In terms of therapy I have worked through (almost) everything on my plate. The deeper issues I address with zen meditation and intuitive energy work. This means that my art is open to the possibility of being a tool for much wider expression. Now I can spend time playing, reflecting the world around me, and exploring new mediums.

The piece that I have submitted for Emerging Visions is called 'merge'. It is a purely experiential state, that cannot be logically or rationaly defined. Hopefully this painting can give the viewer a glimpse into some of the myriad states of consciousness available to us.

You can see more of my work, and hear some _very_ rough demos of my music at http://heartsong.co.za/gaelin/index.htm ( please note the site is still in progress, I am designing in mysef, and still learning some basic HTML skills :)
