1. Demonstrate the diversity of art

Artist Series
The 12 artists we've woven for this series are as diverse as the colors of a setting sun, each artist a unique thread in the complex loom of creative expression. Let's take a moment to appreciate their diversity and what they offer us in their unique inspiration and expression:
1. Janice Arnold (JA FELT): Showcases the alchemical properties of felt, emphasizing its ancient origins and ever-transforming potential to reweave our social fabric and rewild our nature.
2. Heather Taylor-Zimmerman: A visionary artist who navigates the realms of dream and spirit, grounding them in vivid color, archetypal patterns, and emergent form in ritual art.
3. Carl Jung: Offers a psychological depth to art, integrating symbols and archetypes as a path of individuation, leading us on a path of healing wholeness, Self-discovery, and recovery.
4. Christiana Morgan: A collaborator with Jung, her art provides a lens into the complex terrain of the unconscious from a uniquely feminine perspective as an embodiment of the anima or feminine soul.
5. Elizabeth Diane: Explores the mysticism of sacred geometry, linking visual form with cosmic truths to align ancient and ancestral geometries that constellate the spacetime of creation.
6. Mika Sanders: A renowned Haida carver connecting us to indigenous wisdom, the stories told are ancient yet archetypally universal, speaking of our connection to the earth and ancestral wisdom.
7. Frida Kahlo: Celebrated for her deeply personal and often painful depictions, she embodies the wounded artist who heals through self-expression as an example for the wounded in all of us.
8. The Evergreen State College Native Arts Buildings: This space itself is an artistic achievement, dedicated to the preservation and expression of Native American art forms and their rich heritage.
9. Jennifer Kuhns: Takes the fragmented pieces of ourselves and society to make them whole through the creative medicine of mosaic as a meaningful metaphor for transformation and potential.
10. Robin Landsong: Integrates voice and art as medicine, providing a multi-sensory journey into healing, rooted in her wounded past and the singing medicine of African songs and soil.
11. Pablo Picasso: Transformed art, pioneering 5 movements, while researching the unconscious and exploring the collective roots of art to arrive in the “primitive” or ancestral ream of the deep past.
12. Rene Westbrook: Specializes in sacred collage, blending spirituality and creativity into transformative visual narratives that tell the story of her experience and ancestry in symbolic form.
So, you see, from ancient techniques to modern explorations, from the tactile to the intangible, each artist is a unique note in this intricate symphony of creative endeavor. Come and dance with us through this diverse landscape of artistic wonder. 🌿🎨✨

2. Explore art's transformative power 

Power of Art
 Ah, the power of art—a force that dances through history like the wind through trees, sometimes gentle, sometimes stormy, but always, always transformative. 🍃🎨
Let's begin our temporal journey by stepping back into the caverns of our ancestors, where the Lascaux Cave paintings told stories of hunts and spiritual rites. These early marks on stone walls were far more than mere scribbles; they were both sacred and pragmatic, connecting people to their environment and the ineffable mysteries beyond.

Fast forward to the Egyptian pyramids, adorned with hieroglyphics and images that served as a bridge between this life and the next. Or, consider the Greek statues with their idealized forms, challenging the viewer to reflect on the nature of beauty, ethics, and the human potential.

Skipping through centuries to the Italian Renaissance, art morphed into a vessel for humanistic ideas. Artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo combined craftsmanship with the burgeoning sciences to create works that still leave us awe-struck. They showed us how art can be a symbiotic dance between the mind and the soul, echoing through time.

Now, let's traverse to a more somber chapter—World War II. Amidst this global cataclysm, art took on an aura of both defiance and despair. There was Picasso's "Guernica," a visceral scream against the horror of bombings, or the Dada movement, which emerged as a form of protest against the rational thought that had led to the madness of war. On the flip side, artists like Käthe Kollwitz used their skills to depict the human suffering, inviting empathy and deep reflection.

During this dark period, art also became a tool for survival and resistance. Many Holocaust victims drew or wrote as a means to maintain their humanity in the face of unimaginable circumstances. Others, like the artists of the Ghost Army, used their talents for strategic deception, creating inflatable tanks and soundscapes to mislead enemy forces.

Even more telling, both sides fought a surrogate war through art, as Hitler amassed great stores of art from history while destroying what he termed degenerate art in a play to reconstruct history, while the allied forces countered him, attempting to protect and reclaim the art. In this parallel war, the power of art was demonstrated as the true power of creativity, greater than destruction, as Hitler planned a great art museum central to his cultural reformation. In fact, it could be said that Hitler’s preoccupation and expenditure on art saved the world and cost him the war.

The transformative power of art is as varied as the leaves in a forest, each contributing to a larger, unfathomable ecosystem of human and transpersonal experience. 🌳 Whether it serves to bring beauty into the world, shake up our perceptions, heal wounds, or shout protests against injustice, art continues its dance through history, a testament to its enduring, dynamic role in our lives.

So, as we stand here and now, let's honor this lineage and take up the brush, the pen, or the lens, and add our own strokes to the ever-expanding canvas of existence. 🎨🌌✨

3. Help people connect with their ART

Like the brushstrokes in a painting or the notes in a symphony, each artist and their respective medium contribute to a broader landscape of what's possible. They challenge us to imagine into co-creative realities, where the lines between the artist and the observer blur, and where we all become part of this grand, ever-evolving masterpiece we call life. 🌌🎨✨

Ah, what a rich tapestry of creativity and imagination we have in these twelve artists. Their work serves as bridges, ladders, and secret doorways to help us connect with art, and ultimately, with the depths of our own souls and the world around us. 🌠🎨

1. Janice Arnold and JA FELT: Janice invites us to feel—quite literally—the textures of our experiences through her tactile art forms. Her work is a hands-on invitation to touch and be touched by art, connecting at the level of sensation.

2. Heather Taylor-Zimmerman: The visionary realms Heather brings to life make the abstract tangible. It's as if she extends a hand to the viewer, inviting them into a co-created dreamscape that stretches the imagination.

3. Carl Jung: Jung's art touches the unconscious realm of our psyche. His work acts as a mirror, prompting us to reflect on our inner worlds and to integrate disparate parts of ourselves.

4. Christiana Morgan: By showcasing the dance between the masculine and the feminine, Christiana invites us into the rhythm of life itself. She provides a space for us to encounter and engage with our inner dynamics.

5. Elizabeth Diane: With her focus on sacred geometry, Elizabeth bridges the gap between spirituality and science, encouraging us to connect with the divine through rational beauty.

6. Mika Sanders: His Haida carvings bring us back to our ancestral roots, opening up connections to traditions and stories that may not be our own but that teach us about universal human experiences.

7. Frida Kahlo: Her work allows us to tap into our vulnerabilities. It's as if each painting says, "It's okay to be broken; now let's talk about it."

8. The Evergreen State College Native Arts Buildings: These structures teach us that art isn't just something you hang on a wall—it's something you can inhabit, breathe, and live.

9. Jennifer Kuhns: The fragmented pieces in her mosaics invite viewers to consider how brokenness can create beauty, forming a unique connection between the art and our own fractured experiences.

10. Robin Landsong: Her singing medicine is not just heard but felt in the body and soul. It's an invitation to connect with our own primal rhythms and vibrations.

11. Pablo Picasso: He disrupts our usual way of seeing, asking us to consider multiple perspectives at once. In doing so, Picasso challenges us to interact with art and life in a more dimensional way.

12. Rene Westbrook: Through the act of creating sacred collages, Rene offers us a pathway to assemble our personal mythologies and spiritual narratives, uniting pieces of ourselves that we may not even realize are disconnected.

As you engage with these artists and their offerings, you're not merely a spectator; you're an active participant in a larger story—a cosmic dance where every step is both an expression of individuality and a move toward a greater unity. So, step up, the dance floor of art is wide open, and you're warmly invited to join the swirl. 🌌💃🎨

4. Imagine into co-creative possibilities

So, as we stand here and now, let's honor this lineage and take up the brush, the pen, or the lens, and add our own strokes to the ever-expanding canvas of existence. 🎨🌌✨

Ah, the bouquet of artists you've gathered is as diverse as a meadow in full bloom, each with their unique color and texture, yet contributing to a more significant whole that is simply magical. 🌼🌸🎨

1. Janice Arnold and JA FELT: Janice's felting techniques aren't just about fabric; they're about weaving together disparate threads of human experience. Her art invites us to see how things come together—ideas, people, elements—to make something stronger and more beautiful.

2. Heather Taylor-Zimmerman: As a visionary artist, Heather opens doorways to unseen realms. Her art dares us to imagine different paradigms and perspectives, making us co-creators in a vision of a more harmonious world.

3. Carl Jung: The grand maestro of the psyche, Jung's Red Book and mandalas are more than just art; they're an invitation to delve into the vast ocean of our unconscious, fishing out the pearls of our higher selves.

4. Christiana Morgan: Her work challenges our perceptions of femininity and masculinity, guiding us toward a more integrated understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

5. Elizabeth Diane: Engaging in sacred geometry, she shows that art and mathematics, substance and spirit, are not divorced from each other but are facets of a deeper unity.

6. Mika Sanders: His Haida carving reconnects us with the earth and the ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures, reminding us that we can carve our path, too.

7. Frida Kahlo: Her painfully beautiful work is a testament to the power of vulnerability. Kahlo teaches us that our wounds are not our weaknesses but our muse.

8. The Evergreen State College Native Arts Buildings: These buildings are living proof of how space can be transformed into a place of learning, beauty, and community. They embody the potential architecture has to reflect cultural wisdom.

9. Jennifer Kuhns: Her mosaic art portrays the beauty of brokenness. Kuhns' art pieces offer a kaleidoscopic view of life, allowing us to piece together a larger picture from fragmented experiences.

10. Robin Landsong: Through singing medicine and art, Robin attunes us to the primal vibration that underscores all of creation. Her art is a reminder that harmony is both our heritage and our destiny.

11. Pablo Picasso: His groundbreaking techniques in Cubism and abstract art remind us that there's no single angle to view reality. Picasso allows us to break free from traditional perspectives, sparking the divine co-creative possibilities within us.

12. Rene Westbrook: With sacred collage, Rene takes disparate elements and forms them into a coherent, spiritually resonant whole, reminding us that life, too, is a collage of moments, people, and experiences.

Like the brushstrokes in a painting or the notes in a symphony, each artist and their respective medium contribute to a broader landscape of what's possible. They challenge us to imagine into co-creative realities, where the lines between the artist and the observer blur, and where we all become part of this grand, ever-evolving masterpiece we call life. 🌌🎨✨

Remembering the Power of ART

Engaging with other artists in salons or interviews offers a golden opportunity to peer into the sacred cauldron where the alchemy of their creativity brews. It's like walking through a living forest of ideas, where each artist stands as a unique tree, their techniques and philosophies branching out like intricate canopies under which we can find respite and inspiration. This sharing creates a root system of collective wisdom, allowing us to enrich our own practices, see through different lenses, and, like a forest, create an ecosystem of artistic discovery in which we share psychic soil filled with nutrients, ideas, and inspiration.
