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...

"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...

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Our hospital uses art therapy as one of its many tools in its family-centered care toolbox - helping to make our hospital child-friendly and help the entire child heal from painful injuries and serious illness.

Editor's Note from Marie Sakai: Roger Paradis MA, LMT has had his work shown in the Today's Photographer Magazine, Photographers Forum's Best of Photography Annuals (ten consecutive years), the International Library of Photography, Massage Magazine, Cutting Tool Engineering, Massage Warehouse Catalog, and many online publications and websites. Interested in the figure and landscape, Roger portrays the human fragility and the beauty of the world around us in a timelessness, as he captures each moment in both black and white and in color. The figures convey a sense of existence before time, perhaps this is because of the black and white images. The landscapes speak of bright colors and warmth and finally his Conceptual Projects give an uncanny glimpse of the human psyche in all its healing and powerful ways of being.

Three winners in The Healing Power of Art online exhibition that took place in 2009-2010 are aware of the use color as a vital and powerful tool for expression and a healing component in their work. Whether it's to emphasize a mood, energize a form, or serve as a starting point in the artist's journey of self-exploration you can see how color is used differently and expertly by each of these artists...


Editor’s Notes by Marie' Sakai: Beautiful artwork with color emphasizing the conceptions of healing in color, form and texture. Celebrate different artists: Jill Pankey, Annette Ragone Hall and Lori Felix...

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.
