Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Powerful music and powerful images that speak profoundly to our souls. You can see that the colors truly resonate with the images of the tantric portraits, from warms of reds, oranges and yellows of vibrant determination to cool colors of greens, purples, blues that hold a healing, calmness...


Fine Arts


by Naomi Sachs

This is a crossover book, meaning that it’s for everyone from scientists to “educated laypeople” – non-scientists, anybody who might want to find a healing space. It’s also for architects, designers, students, and other young people – which is why I used more populist language, metaphors, and examples...

 

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Naomi Sachs is the Founding Director of the Therapeutic Landscapes Network. She interviews, Esther M. Sternberg, M.D, author of the Healing Spaces: The Science and Place of Well-Being and asks Dr. Sternberg about the landscape of what a healing space is and how we can heal. This book is for anyone interested in the mind, brain and ideas. This interview outlines Dr. Sternberg's belief in that anyone-regardless of if they are scientists, artists, archiects, students, educated or not-healing spaces are for everyone and are available to those who are in need of healing.

Arts & Art Therapy


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.'

 

Arts & Art Therapy


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...

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.
