As a social sculptor, Allyson, with her husband, the artist Alex Grey, co-founded CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors located in the Hudson Valley of New York, a radically welcoming interfaith art church.
A leader of a growing community, Allyson has been a speaker at many conferences and symposia including the Women’s Visionary Congress in California, the Horizons Conference in New York City and the World Psychedelic Forum in Basil, Switzerland. With a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tufts University, Allyson has edited and co-authored over a dozen books and journals, authored countless interviews & forewords, and been an educator and muse to artists for over 30 years. allysongrey.com

His books, Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, Transfigurations, and Art Psalms, trace the development of his work and mystical experiences that shaped his spiritual artistic life. Alex’s most recent monograph, Net of Being, addresses how his art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness.
