Luminous Elsewheres is curated by Deborah Barlow, Alison Cuomo and Karen Fitzgerald. Representing three international artist collectives--Pell Lucy, Fluid Media and Spliced Connector, respectively—the curators have selected work from members of these groups as well as other aligned artists. “We all share an interest in the many ways artists create extraordinary ‘elsewheres’: trusting the process, learning from materials, relying on intuition, giving voice to the innate intelligence of form,” the curators stated.

In conjunction with the opening of Luminous Elsewheres, Deborah Barlow has written about the threads of our new story. Find her eloquent voice here:
Reconsidering the Spiritual.
"..the power of visual art to engage with a sense of awe, transcendence and the numinous...is just one essential aspect of art’s power, but it has been diminished and, in some cases, left out of the historical canon altogether."
She quotes Charlene Spretnak:
My sense of the spiritual dimension of life extends beyond a focus on
the self to a sense of our embeddedness in the larger context: the
exquisitely dynamic interrelatedness of existence, the vibratory flux of
the subtle realms of the material world, and the ultimate creativity of
the universe. The cosmos is infused with an unfolding dynamic of
becoming and also a unitive dimension of being. Spirituality is the
awareness of and engagement with that unity and those dynamics.
There are powerful indicators all around us. Change is here, the old world is falling away. Please join us in celebrating one of the touchstones in these unfolding changes.
