Musing the Goddess – The Art of Greg Spalenka

Saturday, June 20, 2015 – 7-10 pm
7:30 Lecture – 8:30 Book Signing – 9:30 Drum Circle

Join us for a Summer Solstice Art Opening at the Cornell Winery. The festivities will include a multi-media lecture on Spalenka’s art career in publishing and film, a book signing of the newly published, “The Art of Greg Spalenka, Visions from the Mind’s Eye” (Titan Books/London), a Drum Circle (bring your drums!), and other special treats.

The walls will be filled with new mixed media creations and some classics that celebrate the Goddess in all her mysterious and divine glory. Some of these are large pieces (up to 6 feet tall) with gold and silver leaf. It has been awhile since I had a one person show. Feels good to be painting and getting my hands in it again.

I am the Sun, represents the shift from a patriarchal, male dominated world view to a more feminine and holistic one. The sun is generally associated with masculine attributes, but with the Goddess rising in the world’s consciousness, the female population is embodying this powerful symbol of light, life and energy in their minds, bodies, and spirit.

Be one of the first to purchase a piece in this show!

Nature'sGraces

“Nature’s Graces” (almost finished) will also be in the show, 38″x43″ mixed media, acrylic, oil, varnish, on vinyl. Gold leaf will be added in the next phase. This art reflects the three graces of antiquity connected to nature. Charm, beauty, creativity dancing together upheld and nurtured by a common spirit. Timeless elegance with a nod to Raphael.

Love Incense

Boissmall

There have been lots of requests for this image so I am happy to announce that “Love Incense” is now available as 18″x24″ and 24″x36″ signed, museum quality archival prints. Below the art is printed the following inscription:  “The union of two souls are like trees rooted to the ground, the incense of their love branching upward, manifesting a sacred geometric imprint in the ethers.” 

This art was created for Roxana Illuminated Perfume’s Figure 5: Bois botanical perfume… “a weathered and warm embrace from the undergrowth of a mystic forest.”

Figure 5: Bois

Boissmall

Tonight is the opening for the “Marriage is a Work of Art” show at Krab Jab Studio in Seattle. It showcases the art of seven artist couples, myself and Roxana included. Figure 5: Bois is a 3’x5′ digital print on canvas that will be showcased along with the Roxana Illuminated Perfume solid perfume of the same name.

krabjabshow

The union of two souls are like trees rooted to the ground while the incense
of their love branches upward manifesting a sacred geometric imprint in the ethers.

The perfume… is a weathered and warm embrace from the undergrowth of a mystic forest.

It is a beautiful combination of art and scent. Go to the show and experience both.
$950 for the 3’x5′ banner (with hand painted wooden hanging slats top and bottom) and a Figure 5: Noir solid perfume.

Here is a review of the show.

Mythic Worlds

IMG_1125

Mythic Worlds in Seattle is a new art convention that embraces all things magical and historical. Myself and Roxana were guest artists at this event and had many panel discussions, lectures and workshops. One of my presentations was called, “The Temple at Delphi” where participants learned to, “Know Thyself.” We had lots of realizations and transformation in that room!

All in all it was good fun along with meeting other kindred spirits such as Terryl Whitlatch, Virginie Ropars, David ThiérréeClaire Briant, Yoann Lossel, Amy Brown and many other artisans. 

Below are some cosplay from the event and more…
