anew-01-smallANEW Gallery Annex is hosting: ART TRANSMISSION Project

Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 1 – 5 PM.    Six artists; including visual artists, poets, musicians and writers have been working in the Art Transmission Project for a month learning how to more deeply transmit sensation and emotion in their work so that those who interact with it will feel both.

Their work is deeply influenced by recognizing the influence of the Feminine Divine in creativity and following the calling of the Muse. Artists include Kim Scherer, Ashwin Jose, Raphael Martinez and Deborah Tash, as well as others.

ALSO the main Gallery Hosts “eARTh Everywhere” the fine art, nature, creative and travel photography of Stacy Boorn. View  Photographer Stacy Boorn’s work HERE

We re-envisioned AWE Gallery into its new incarnation as ANEW Gallery. ANEW Gallery will be featuring Stacy Boorn’s Fine Art and Nature Photography in the main gallery and painter/sculptor Visionary Artist Deborah Tash’s Retrospective and related guest and group themed in the Annex. Each month we will be presenting various Ekphrastic art parties and presentations.

ANEW is “Arts ‘n Ekphrastics by Women. Ekphrasism is a dialog between one art form and another.

Occasional Music by Steve Eulberg – The vibrations of wood and string, the resonance, the shaped breath and wind are the musician’s creative muses. Vocals, guitars, mandolins, didjeridoo’s, drums, dulcimers–Steve finds bits of the human soul in each.
