Thursday, April 15, 2009. 10AM-1PM and 2PM to 5PM (two periods of 3 hours; food is not included)
Visionary artists Alex and Allyson Grey teach painting and drawing from the wellspring of divine imagination. In this workshop artists at any level of experience draw and paint from the sacred ground and the mystic eye. Through an illustrated talk, a vision practice, and group interaction, participants can enter the doors of the imagination to the theater of revelation. Utilizing basic materials such as graphite, colored pencils, pastels, and watercolors, we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences.
Best known for paintings that “X-ray” multiple dimensions of reality, Grey interweaves biological anatomy with psychic/spiritual energies. His visual meditation on the nature of consciousness has led to exhibitions and keynote addresses from Tokyo to Sao Paulo, features on Discovery Channel, Newsweek, Time, and album art for Grammy Award winning bands such as Tool, Beastie Boys, Nirvana and SCI.
An accomplished visionary artist, Allyson Grey’s paintings invent a symbol system representing chaos, order and secret writing. Allyson has taught art for decades and exhibited widely. She co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tufts University, has edited and co-written a dozen books and journals including CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture and Damanhur: Temples of Humankind, .
