Gallery Talk ~ THOTH ~ The Emerald Tablets ~ The Sounding Light

(click image for larger view)

So very pleased with this opportunity to share what has been an inspired influence in my work as an educator, poet, artist and pioneering sound therapist... ONE as inspiration for each purpose defined and lived. Visual Soundscapes, APOGEE Vibrational Art™, has been proven, through biofeedback processes, to have a profound and beneficial effect on breath, integration of left and right brain functioning, and reduction in stress indicators. Those who have viewed the works are consistent in their positive appraisal. So do plan to join in... yes, explore, experience and share your personal perspectives... indeed The Art of BEING... 

In Another's Name

What be this quest and this claim
To reveal SELF in another's name
Callings silent yet be they heard
Echoes of heart in revelation's word
Visions of places and divine deeds
Sound, light, truth as living creed
The Treasure 
of    Heart, 
the   One
the   Truth, 
the   Harmonies 
Beyond conceal
This the embracing purpose real
Bear in TRUTH your claim
SELF revealed in another's name.

... and I at the bench...

... and I at the bench...

I at the bench
Touched by The Sounding Light
Colors before me in choral splendor
Brilliant, lyrical, motion in stillness sublime
Heard is the music
Felt is the dance
The beckoning Muse in surrender sweet.

The Sounding Light ~ Opening Gallery Event ~ An Evening of Splendor

The Union Arts Center, Sparkill, New York

Presented here are four of the seventeen works on exhibit at 
The Quincy Hall Gallery, The Union Arts Center, Sparkill, New York

The Artist's Statement Poetically Presented

Is it

Is it brush in hand and thought in heart
From which this painting has its start
Where comes this call I hear as mine
Word, color and form these gifts of time
Is it the Muse that summons the soul
Beauty be the quest, beauty be the goal
And when in completion a work is to be
Is it the Muse I hear in joyful reverie
Is it Truth that anoints each new day
With the knowing path of the spirit's way
Ever present this reach to do and create
Welcome I Truth, the Muse, Destiny and Fate
God be known in what I receive and give
This be the decree for each moment I live
Is it when faith and knowing jointly resound
That God and the Muse so freely are found
So be it brush or pen in heart, mind or hand
It is to be in the Creator's fullest command.
