The Spiritual Power of Art exhibit series explores three different meanings of “spirit”: Human Spirit, Universal Energy and Mystical & Religious Experience. The exhibit Myth, Religion & Mystical Experience exhibit focuses on art as a vehicle for Otherworldly encounters with Source, God, Goddess, ancestors, spirit guides, Archetypes, and mythology. 

The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and installation. Life Force Arts Center Artistic Director Joan Forest Mage says, “It’s fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about the theme. At LFAC, our art exhibits create sacred space in which events become healing rituals: performances, concerts, poetry readings, workshops, and lectures are all infused with transformative power to heal and enlighten those present.”

The Spiritual Power of Art: Myth, Religion & Mystical Experience is the third exhibit in the four year Life Force Arts Manifesto series. Each year (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) Life Force Arts Center will focus the theme of its shows on one section of its core statement, the Life Force Arts Manifesto. 

The mission of Life Force Arts Center (LFAC)is to create transformation and community through the spiritual power of the visual, literary, and performing arts. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists of diverse spiritual traditions present artistically excellent exhibits, events, and publications to awaken human potential, create spiritual transformation and connect audiences to the mystical dimension.
