The Liminal Art Salon® presents The Poet and The Artist in Aphrodite’s Garden: Liminal, Lyrical, Lucid, an artistic collaboration of artist Jais Booth and award-winning poet Bronton Cheja. The duo invite you to enter Aphrodite’s Garden*, an exhibit celebrating the interrelated lines of connection from automatism, the unpremeditated or unconceptualized art of surrealism, to liminalism, or liminal art. The exhibit shows the ability of the artist/poet to transmit states of being that are beyond the threshold (Latin limen) of ordinary human consciousness. The liminal is that which is in between the literal reality word of here/now and spirit worlds, the higher, deeper dimensions of existence.
*symbolizing the Mind, or consciousness of Love
Jais Booth and Cheja have collaborated on exhibits before through the Red Door Gallery & Collective (Myth, Magic, Mystery, 2009) and the Liminal Art Salon® (Oracle: Visionary Art Expressing the Prophetic Voice, 2011). Both are inspired by a Muse that compels deeper exploration and tells a story, inviting you to enjoy art and poetry that has depth and light dancing together, works that express the ineffable. This show, from the original founders of the Liminal Art Movement, will fascinate your soul’s longing for beauty and meaning.
In addition to the Preview and First Friday, the gallery is open each Saturday from 1-5pm
