Awakening Arts Institute Artists Network
Awakening Arts is a worldwide network of artists, patrons
and friends who support Art which uplifts, inspires, transforms
and awakens.We are a growing resource nexus working in synergy
to create exhibitions, retreats and symposiums.
· Awakening Arts Institute unites artists
throughout the world who are seeking a deeper source of inspiration,
and aspiring to a higher vision of what the Arts are meant
· We believe that Art, serving as a conduit
of revelation and vision, has the power to transformconsciousness.
· We nurture 'awakening artists' through
an online resource nexus, exhibitions, retreats, residencies,
and a small fine art press.
We believe that Art is powerful.
The power of Art can be used to degrade or to uplift the
Human Spirit. While art can reflect the tawdry realities and
bitter truths of the world around it, it can also imagine
a world beyond the obstacles, and in doing so inspire the
solutions. Art can offer the despair of nihilism or the hope
of inspiring vision.
We believe that Art is meant to be meaningful.
The noble purpose of art is to uplift the consciousness of
both its creator and viewer.Art has the power to nurture the
heart, inspire the Soul, and awaken the dormant higher capacities
which propel the evolution of humanity. Art has the power
to bring hope and vision to the world.
Art reveals Truth.
Through Art we can see deep truths that are otherwise invisible.The
inner realms of the human psyche and the inner kingdoms of
the Soul are brought forth. In great works of art we feel
the deepest yearnings of our Heart and glimpse the shimmering
revelations of our Spirit. What is unseen is revealed. What
is essential is made clear.
Art changes Consciousness.
Art is a language beyond words, rich in resonance and meaning.
Art translates inner feeling so that it can be seen and felt
more clearly. Artistic expressions, whether musical, kinesthetic
or visual, can amplify, refine or transmute the raw energies
of emotion. Works of art can amplify our feelings toward
increased agitation or refine them toward clarified intuitive
insight. Every work of art carries a vibration that
affects our consciousness in listening or viewing- whether
or not we are aware of its effect.
Art is an Opening to the Infinite.
The act of creating is an opening through which the infinite
can enter. True creativity is an act of turning inward, and
ex pressing or ' pressing out' from the
vast resources of the inner realms. When we open the channel
of creativity we invite the flow of a greater power in and
through our lives. True originality is that which
springs directly from the Origin , the Eternal Source
that is the font of Being within each individual. This kingdom
of the Spirit is ever within. The process of creativity is
an Opening to this Living Presence, and the work that flows
from that high fountain is what truly nourishes the human
From creative director Dana Lynne Andersen:
Much of the art of the 20 th century has become a reflection
of our alienation and material decadence, revealing the pervasive
ugliness, despair, anger and loss of meaning, but offering
no way out. It is my belief that art has a noble role in the
evolution of humanity. I believe that is no longer sufficient
for the artist to express the darkness or to show that we
are lost. It is time for all artists, and the artists we all
are, to claim the far more difficult and heroic task of finding
the light and showing the way. In ancient times the artists
served as shamans and visionaries for the entire community,
they created the sacred spaces of inspiration and revelation.
It is time to rediscover this act of community and nourish
