It’s a rare occasion that you get to spend an entire week hanging out and painting with your art heroes.
It began with a prayer to the Divine Creative Spirit.
1. Art IS a valid spiritual practice.
2. You are NOT alone.
3. Dream BIGGER!
4. YOU are art.
It concluded with hugs and tears of joy.

About the Artwork
Here we have the second installment in the Flight of Fancy Series by visionary artist, Brian C. Zickafoose. Our friend Fancy is suspended inside a torus shaped subatomic chamber as photon beams stream past in blinding speeds. The static of uncertainty dispatches on bulbous monitor screens across the walls of the chamber as we turn the corner ever faster. “Do you see?” – asks Fancy in a feverish whisper. Limited edition paper and canvas prints are available.
We ventured north to the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in Wappingers Falls, NY over the weekend of August 9-10 for the Annual CoSM Members BBQ, Full Moon Celebration and Lightbody Art Church with our hosts, world-renowned visionary artists, Alex and Allyson Grey. Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.
