Wide Awake and Dreaming

Just taken images from the Full Moon Ecstatic Art Workshop on 9/29/12. The spARkARTscollAboRaTive was at it again, this time, the core group got together for a special Full Moon at Dog Star Studios in Middletown Springs. Leaf peeping along the way—some of those autumn colors found their way into these works. The paintings we created also portray the heavy moon influence as well as the decidedly,  jazz to house music bend the musical selections took,  a little snazzy jazzy urban and a whole lot of full. A special thanks to Jan and Frank Asch for providing the space. For information on future workshops contact Rachel Baird via this gallery. This is a Zone Three Gallery sponsored event.

Dreaming in the Rain

Well – it is time for the Arts Walk once again…..the film “Word Speak” has not spoken yet…still working on it…the good news in all of that is we will have more footage to work with over the next couple of weeks…and so the iPad gallery is silent tonight – but the Merry Mob of Poets will be out and about in town – try to find us and you just may have a poetic surprise in store…also poems have gone up around town – the literary walk within the walk is in place – so be sure to linger at each window and read the poetry galore….and in front of Otter Creek Books in the Marble Works – Parking Lot Poetry – cars covered with favorite poems for more poetic license …..

And at the Art Love Shack – corner of Printer’s Alley and Main Street – find a poem or two and also “The Summer Storm”  one of the paintings from the latest Ecstatic Art Workshop.  Explanation and photo of the piece below….see you out and about.

The Summer Storm

The spARkARTscollAboRaTive is a group of modern artists that create collective works and installations. They hold Ecstatic Art Workshops twice a year – where the public is invited to a collective process painting session replete with opening ecstatic meditation and music. This Piece — “The Summer Storm” — was created at the recent July workshop during a major thunder storm – you can see the progression of the storm in the piece from dark cloud build up to wind, deluge and dispersal of the storm’s energy. For Further information on future workshops contact Rachel Baird via this gallery. This is a Zone Three Gallery sponsored event. This work of art was created by: Frank Asch, Jan Asch, Rachel Baird, Diane Curran, Rebecca Gibb and Bolton Price.
