by Shemaya Nancy Blauer

As a hospice volunteer I often sat bedside and entered into an intimacy and being that words could not begin to describe. Each person’s journey was unique, and my task was to enter their world and be a companion, allowing each moment to unfold into the next...

 

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Touch Drawing, a unique process of drawing with the finger tips, has lent healing benefits to those coping with grief, health issues and trauma to name a few. In this article, hospice worker Shemaya Nancy Blauer reminds caregivers to take time to make their own art to integrate the profound (and sometimes challenging) experiences of helping others.

Isn’t it amazing that the land we walk upon is the same land that frames the sky with majestic mountains and leads sandy beaches to the shore? The limitations of earth are few and her mysteries are great. In fact, the simple symbolism representative of earth, downplay her complexity. Her far-reaching nature cannot be drawn in a picture, nor can it be limited to words – earth is far too awesome for that...

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: In the Realms of the Unreal chronicles the life and work of self taught artist and writer Henry Darger. Abused as a child orphan, a poor janitor and recluse in adulthood, Darger's work reflects a rich fantasy world, creative spirit, and dedication to art making that was only discovered by others just before his death. His work is now internationally known.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: A video by Mia BloomBecker. 'The field of Art Therapy is growing, but many people still don't know what it entails. This is a film I made for my Film, Culture and Society class. The interviews are with Shaun McNiff, the Dean at Lesley University and Art Therapy expert, and my friends Jen Malloy and Maddie Dickerson. This was one of my favorite experiences I've ever had, and I hope the video is thought-provoking.'

by Allison Havens

When I first met the youth group in El Nance started by the previous ArtCorps Artist Monica Gutierrez, I asked them to brainstorm the topics and activities they were interested in working on this year. Out of this first session, we came up with the idea to make trashcans for the community to help combat the problem of waste in the streets...

 

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Creativity, environmental education, and necessity collide when a group of youth in Honduras come together to clean up their community, with a little inspiration from re-purposed trash turned into art.

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: Vibrant and colorful, Karen Atkins' photography will inspire you, move you, and groove you in her portraits of women, children, and men around the world. Traveling to 7 different countries, she photographed the essence of her journey through these diverse cultured peoples. Body gestures, intense colorations, and different perspectives give the viewer a different perspective as one can see through the lens of Karen Atkins' "Vibration Project". Her compositions as well as her understanding of the people, their souls is captured in this moment of brilliance. Photography has the power to shine the human soul and Karen Atkins' Portraits convey this power of the beauty of the Human Spirit...

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Peace Train brought together youth from opposite sides of the Israel-Palestine conflict to sing and dance and make art together, thus exploring the theme of creative approaches to solving conflict.

"Trains are fast and powerful," he says, "As a kid I rode the trains everywhere, and I still love the sound of the El." But apart from the romance of the machine, Allen’s trains are vehicles for escape, often weaving through forbidding imaginary cityscapes, and they hint at the difficulties he seeks to overcome through his art.

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: The power of Cynthia Rose Young's paintings will invigorate your soul. Using sacred geometry and the illumination of light, these paintings will speak volumes to your soul. In its artistic aesthetics, her spacial depth of a deeper understanding that goes beyond the veil, heightens the subtleties of her midtone range in her paintings, which contrasts strikingly with the white light. Etheric and volumetric, her work shines as a beacon of the Divine in all its symbolism and gestures of her nuances in communing with The Spiritus- the breath of spirit.

from Art Enables

In the Nation's Capitol is a studio and gallery for emerging artists with developmental disabilities. Their chance to make art comes through Art Enables. Their reasons for doing it are their own: to have something to do, to make money, to feel important, to tell the world who they are, or to become famous. Very often people with developmental disabilities are better able to express themselves in images than in words...

 

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Adults with developmental disabilities find the support, tools, and structure they need to become professional artists at Washington metropolitan organization and studio, Art Enables.

" Imagine darkness so intense and so complete covering you like a velvet blanket...

  ... a blackness that cuts you off from the everyday world, forcing you to draw deep into yourself, a blackness that makes you see with your heart instead of your eyes...


Editor’s Note from Marie' Sakai: Trance Dancing is part of a deeper dance into the soul, going into the underworld of the shadow side and becoming aware through a shamanistic perspective in this guided and beautiful dance...

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
