Kala Snowflower

I'm very excited to have just finished my latest book of poems, Snakebite, and currently am planning an e format release of it. A new book of devotional poems is in the works, so far entitled, Adore. In addition to keeping the flow of poetry alive year after wheel of the year, I am now taking my studies of herbal medicine to the next level by growing herbs and preparing my own medicines. Last year I received my third Reiki attunement and I have recently began teaching classes in Reiki and passing attunements. I am enjoying this work immensely and learning so much in the process. My work as a healer and my work as a poet flow from the same source. And I am grateful to be able to continue and deepen my understanding of life and love through my Art and artful living. You can reach me at kalaalak@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you about my poetry, the healing arts or to share in awe over the Beauty of this sweet Earth.




Clancy Cavnar

My work is visionary, and reflects my interest in several esoteric spiritual paths.
I have experienced profound transformation in my studies of shamanism and plant teachers and the Santo Daime and that is reflected in my work.
In my meditations I have encountered the eternal source of creativity, and I try to convey what I perceive of this and pay tribute to the spiritual world we cannot photograph or see with our physical eyes.
My style is representational, but psychedelic; influenced by the religious art of India, Mexico and South America.

I am currently studying for my doctorate in clinical psychology at John F. Kennedy University

Antero Alli

is the author of ANGEL TECH, TOWARDS AN ARCHEOLOGY OF THE SOUL, ASTROLOGIK, THE VERTICAL ORACLE, and PREGNANT UNIVERSE (with CS Hyatt, PhD). He is also an underground filmmaker and a director of paratheatre. To find out more about his work, go to www.verticalpool.com

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 acts through men or their machines. My agitating is more a gut response to being agitated. I am agitated by the bone-crushing boredom disguised as "Art" produced by any individual, any group, any society wallowing in their own tragic loss of imagination and its incumbent corruption of Soul. My aim is to agitate Imagination, the chief inlet for Soul in this era. -- Antero Alli

Stevon Lucero

About Myself...

I have been painting for three decades. Since my childhood, I have experienced live visions, vision dreams, dreams of other worlds and separate realities. Through these revelations of the metaphysical, I have been guided to create the unique art form I call "Metarealism". This is how I describe it: "Metarealism is the externalization of interior realities which are transformed into visual mystic metaphors. I use the process of the philosophic state of polar synthesis. My paintings are neither reflections of the conscious, as in realism, nor the subconscious, as in surrealism. They are instead a visual synthesis, symbolizing the spiritual continuum to which they owe their existence and which lies at the center of their being. (All being, for that matter!) Their being is therefore the personification of thought realities. Thought Forms ... as it were.

Alicia Schordine

Working in oils, Alicia's paintings capture the etheric and elusive
qualities of the otherworldly realms that coexist right beside our
own. Images of the Fae Folk, Goddesses, Soul Impressions and
Wonderland-esque landscapes grace her canvases, leaving the viewer to
embrace the beauty of the world as Alicia sees it. A world where
behind every corner is a bit of magic just waiting to be noticed and
set free.

Leland Auslender

The photographs and films of Leland Auslender have been critically acclaimed at national and international exhibitions, including many one-man shows. The Birth of Aphrodite" won the CINE Golden Eagle and the Atlanta International Film Festival Silver Phoenix for Best Experimental Film. It was an official U.S. entry at the Cannes Film Festival.

Frozen in timeless beauty, Auslender’s Celestial Images reflect transcendental or “peak” experiences of our oneness with the mystical universe as we open ourselves to receive whatever it might offer…

glimpses of the glittering biodance,
visits by the mysterious Muse,
the cosmos as a cathedral,
fantasies… dreams,
ethereal angels,
mythical gods,
nature spirits,
love and
bliss.





DoAn: Antony Galbraith

Birthplace: North Kingstown, RI

I consider myself an interstitial artist, working mainly between the
borders of Western and Eastern artistic traditions, combining
traditional and new painting techniques and materials. The main goal
of my work is to compare different cultures, combine mythologies,
folklores, and the natural world to create paintings in abstract and
expressionist styles. Recently, I have been exploring Irish mythology
and expressing the different gods of ancient Ireland through abstract
paintings inspired by cosmic objects such as nebulas, galaxies, star
clusters as well as more earthly objects such as rocks, sunlit ripples
on water, and the patina on corroded metal, among other things. It is
my hope that through these works the viewer begins to find inspiration
and the divine in everything around them.

Jean Pronovost

From his Montreal workshop, Jean Pronovost travels from civilization to
civilization, from era to era. With the stroke of a paintbrush, he
transports the viewer from an Inca legend, or plunges us into the urban
jungle. With the movement of a palette knife, he invokes forgotten gods. The
powerful realism of his paintings and sculptures reveal a world where
ancient symbols discover new meaning.

Robert Simon

FROM THE ARTIST
"Drawing is and has been an incredible escape for me throughout most of my life. I do not draw to create some decorative piece to hang on the wall. There is a compulsion which drives this; I have to do it or my world becomes out of balance. When I am drawing, my heart rate slows down and my mind is focused, though not fixated on any specific thought. Thoughts are free-flowing. Though style and form are clearly consistent, it is impossible for me to draw the same image again. I believe that this is because one's mind never returns to the same place - it's like life, always in flux.

People frequently ask me what certain drawings mean. I believe that art evokes thoughts and feelings that are the viewer's own. To dictate what should be interpreted interferes with what the viewer may need most out of the experience. Each person is free to input whatever meaning they wish on my work. However, a common theme played out in much of my work is a constant battle between chaos and order. There is much about my work that at first seems chaotic and confusing, but, upon closer examination, one sees that continually repeating patterns form a larger entity. I see my art as visual jazz of limitless patterns and infinite combinations with no set conventions to follow."

For other examples of Robert Simon's art work, please go to his website at
http://www.mindmuses.com . There are links from there to galleries that are showing his art. Robert wants to impart the hope and motivation to others that they might find peace and comfort in uncovering their own artistic expression, which lies within all of us.

I am violet, far out in front of my vision, especially when in the darkness. I am golden orange even farther out, in the self that dreams this life, and my others.
In this particular dream of a life, I have written since childhood, with an MA from Florida State, and an MFA from Iowa. I have published widely, such as being the featured writer in Global Inner Visions, and Southern Hum. I am currently working on a book called Tantric Lucidity. My writing site is

I love you!





Marjorie Kaye

Observation

In my drawings, recognizable objects and situations have emerged into the reflection of the ironies of life, employing the symbolism as a statement of conciousness and re-awakening. The metaphorical objects, such as snakes, horses, and birds act as interpretive statements, sometimes with humans as the active observers. They are meant to emit and reflect a respect and sense of wonder paid willingly to the preservation of our natural environment.

There are events that symbolism cannot fulfill as an active description - in the circumstances of war it is a direct statement that most likely combines with the use of metaphor to express the extremes of personal reaction. So it is that my work takes on many forms, from the metaphysical to the socially surreal. The work is based on the input of information, and also takes root in emotional response to what the senses are exposed to at any given time.

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.

Rachel C Thompson

is a writer, illustrator, political cartoonist, water color artist and human rights activist living in Bethlehem, PA.
"Most of my fine art is metaphorical in nature, and speaks to social issues via common or invented subjects. None of my watercolors are simply pretty pictures."
Her art is visionary in that she uses art to make unpopular social statements and/or observations using comfortable, non-threatening objects to draw the viewer in. Onlookers will see that the art work's title, and pictured objects, is often incongruent. The objective is for the viewer to think deeper. Rachel also uses multiple layers of symbolism in her art. "My hope is that my art will inspire people to see past the surface, not only in my art but in all things. My art's message is to seek deeper meaning in all aspects of life."

"Dragon's Play" watercolor 16 x 20 is the piece presented here. "This is my dream of a future whereby nature is not disturbed by those who study it. In this environment, dragons play undisturbed by the observation aircraft flying with them. My dreamwish is that high technology and nature will coexist harmoniously."

Currently, Rachel's painting, "Dianne's Porch", can be seen at the William Way Community Center located at 1315 Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA. Her paintings (seen here), with the hummingbird motive, are from a three part work called ,"evolution" that can now be viewed at the Backer Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College, Allentown PA. Samples of her political cartoons are in the current issues of, "Gaydar" magazine.

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,
