Tapping the Third Realm: Artists Exploring Spiritual Dimensions
November 21, 2013
A sprawling, wondrous exhibition, "Tapping the Third Realm" presents the work of thirty-four artists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues, as stated by the curators, and include "conjuring, communication, collaboration and chance." The exhibition explores how artists tap into another dimension, whether it is a place of spirits, ideas of heaven, or the collective unconscious. "Elements of magic, witchcraft, and profound attention or intuition are evident in the artists' creative processes," say the curators. In this collection of work there are portals to the spirit world, communications with the dead, spells manifested in glass, prayers as drawings, potions as paintings, and dreams transformed into sculpture. "Tapping the Third Realm"is co-curated by Meg Linton, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions, Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design & Carolyn Peter, Director and Curator, Laband Art Gallery, Loyola Marymount University, and is on view through December 8, 2013.
