Art Church: Cosmic Creativity
with Alex & Allyson
1 – 5 pm

Cosmic Creativity: How Art Evolves Consciousness

How visionary art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness.

Creativity is a cosmic force. We are aligning ourselves with the force of the cosmos that is continually evolving and recreating in every moment. We are a cosmic force in action.

Genuine creativity is not just a personal gift; it’s an evolving cosmic force that expands the identity of the individual beyond the bounds of body and ego toward a sense of oneness with a larger consciousness. Many great works, from megaliths to pyramids to cathedrals, were built by groups of creators aligning themselves with universal mind.

Come activate your inspired action in the world! Join Alex and Allyson and explore how the aesthetic experience of art can lead us to unitive mystical experience.

 

Love,

 

Alex & Allyson

Geometric Meditations 
as Practical Magic
Weekend Workshop
with David Heskin & Aloria Weaver
August 12th – 14th

Join supreme artists, David Heskin & Aloria Weaver in this weekend’s workshop on transforming the ancient symbolic language of geometry into art and contemplative practice.

Sacred geometry, through finite boundaries, can express infinite inner worlds. From two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids, simple tools can map complex, intuitive shapes evidenced in art inspired by the fabric of our consciousness.

By drawing connections with the Geometer’s tools, the compass and straight edge, connections of meaning are drawn within our creative mind. The group will collaborate on a drawing through meditative exploration. Bring drawing pencils, sketchbook, compass, and ruler.

 

Love,

Alex & Allyson

Moises Llerena & Alfredo Zagaceta: Artists of the Amazon

By on August 10, 2016

Using intricate design and delicate detail, Moises Llerena and Alfred Zagaceta paint the legendary balance between mankind and mother nature. Having studied under visionary maestro Pablo Amaringo, these artist’s of the Amazon uncover the multiple layers of nature’s beauty through the divine imagination.

Moises Llerena was born on the 8th of April 1975, in the Peruvian village of Flor de Punga. After completing secondary school, he went to study art at Usko Ayar Amazonian School of Painting under the wing of Pablo Amaringo.

His inspiration stems from the ancestral inhabitants of the Amazon Rainforest and their customs. Llerena strives to communicate the importance of taking care of our planet. Both individually and collectively.

He features works at exhibits in Peru including the Municipal Museum of Iquitos, Municipal Museum of Cusco and the Miro Art Gallery in Lima. Though he is from Peru, Llerena has exhibited across the globe including the United States, Finland and Bern Switzerland where he currently resides.

Alfredo Zagaceta is from Pucallpa, the Ucayali region of the Peruvian Amazon Jungle. Apprenticing under Pablo Amaringo, he lived and worked with him in exchange for his school’s tuition at the Amazon School of Painting. For 4 years Zagaceta learned English, helped with daily chores, and immersed himself in jungle wisdom. With an ability to perceive the metaphysical realms, he interprets scenes into the canvas.

Zagaceta has participated in collective exhibitions in various parts of Peru, US, Europe, and Japan. His paintings hang in the International Museum of Children’s Art in Norway and has participated in the film, “and so I tell them to paint.”

He currently resides in Pucallpa and paints in the Neo-Amazonico and the amazonia sub-realistic style. He says that his passion is painting, and that he will paint until he can no longer lift a brush.

Both Alfredo Zagaceta and Moises Llerena consider nature to be the true master, teaching the vibrations of beauty and love. Their masterpieces are opportunities to delve into the spirit dimension within the jungle kingdom, assisting us in maturing the body and spirit.

To get a deeper download and first hand knowledge from the artist’s themselves, CoSM is hosting a weekend workshop, Shamanic Painting, August 26th – 28th.

Introduce yourselves to the art and style of the USKO-AYAR Amazonian School of Painting and the legacy of shaman and painter, Pablo Amaringo. Providing examples, Moises and Alfredo explain the unique flow of Neo-Amazonico painting and its visionary roots in ayahuasca shamanism. Secure a spot now and come add to your artistic flare!
