“Tapping the Third Realm” presents the work of 34 artists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues: conjuring, communication, collaboration and chance. It explores how artists tap into another dimension, whether it be 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. 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.
Who better to guide us into the spirit world than contemporary art expert John O’Brien, who always combines his own creativity and imagination as an artist with a highly articulate approach to explaining contemporary art.
Inside the Story is the concept of and endeavor by sisters Wendy Moss and Susan Cherney. They offer an impressive array of events, from in-home lectures to field trips like delving into the world of a perfumanista with author and enthusiast Denise Hamilton.
