"CALL TO ARTISTS"
0000-00-00 until 0000-00-00
Lieberman Foundation and Gallery and ARTarget
Sarasota, FL, USA United States of America

INTUITIVE ART: THE ARTIST AS SHAMAN Sponsored by The Lieberman Foundation and Gallery and ARTarget. April 7 - May 7, 2000. At The Rosemary Court Galleries. Curated by George Box. While there are many artists who represent reality literally, reproducing images from the world around us as if trying to achieve the effects of conventional photography, there are other artists who represent the unseen mystical world. These artists, whom we shall call shamanic artists , bear similarities to the shaman of earlier cultures who carry out rituals which calm the mind, thus allowing a higher consciousness to come through. This in turn leads the shamanic artist to a recognition of larger truths - truths that may manifest as visions, feelings of well-being, a sense of oneness with the universe, answers to pressing questions or as frightening images that must be faced and dealt with as externalized parts of our darker inner selves.

Sister Wendy Beckett observes that the mind may be aware only of some mysterious truth. This is the essence of spiritual art. We are taken into a realm that is potentially open to us, (and) we are made more aware of what we are meant to be. All great art, being spiritual, both grieves and celebrates what we do.

Clement Greenberg, in a seminar given at Bennington College, 1971 said,All reality, all possibility is virtually art, not realized as art, but virtual as art. In other words, we live in an ocean of art or of the possibility of art. An infinity already there.

**Deadline for entries March 21,2000**

The concept for the exhibition includes every and any aspect of an artist's work that could be construed as shamanic . A main source is a national group of which George Box is an associate member: The Society of Layerists in Multi Media. Their book Bridging Time and Space published by Markowitz Publishing in 1998 touches on various aspects such as holism,alchemy,spirituality, Earth metaphors,cosmic forces,shamanic healing, archaic forms relative to contemporary forms, ritual, and very importantly, the creative process. It does it through well thought out essays and excellent color plates. The intention is to display the art along with essays explaining the artist's work in terms of shamanic practice be it real or imaginary.
