Dallas Dreams & Divinities Equinox Show

Banner web_fernal 5

Four equinoxes: Toledo, Spain  *  Paris, France  *  San Cristobal de la Casas, Mexico  *  Dallas, Texas

The finale for the “Dreams and Divinities Equinox Shows will be hosted by the award winning Dallas gallery “LuminArte” The international exhibition will open on March 21st in celebration of  the Spring Equinox and balance in all fields of life. The principal visual styles showcased include Visionary Art, Surrealism, Fantastic and Magical Realism. Artists were inspired by cultural and spiritual sources, elements of nature, explorations into the subconscious mind, visions, dreams and imagination.

The Dallas show concludes a three year odyssey starting in Toledo Spain on the Spring Equinox of 2013. The original show which is assosciated with the book Divining the Dream, travelled through Andalucia and had its finale on the Fall Equinox in Paris, France. The following year, on the Spring Equinox, the city of San Cristobal de las Casas hosted a new show in one of their museums. This show also emphasized balance and to assure continuity, some of the the art from the European show was included. The show later travelled to Monterrey for the Mexico finale at Amon-Ra Gallery. For the North American finale at Luminarte, some of the pieces from Toledo and Mexico have been mixed with new work to give a sense of both continuity and freshness.

 The opening reception begins at 7:00 pm on Saturday with artists in attendance; and both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Dreams & Divinities & The Society of the Imagination (AOI) are getting married!

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Share Button

banner AOI EUROPE marriage


Dear community and members of the Society for Art of Imagination,

After the brilliant success of the Canadian Society for Art of Imagination, I would like to introduce Liba Stambollion who is already well-known as an Artist and Book Creator and fabulous Exhibitions Organizer.

She has kindly agreed to be our leader for the European Society for Art of Imagination, and already has ideas for our next Shows in Europe!

So a warm welcome to Liba!

Brigid Marlin

Liba will now be writing about her plans:

I am honored to have the trust of Brigid Marlin and company to turn this new page in the AOI story.  This marriage between Dreams and Divinities and AOI will allow us to merge resources, opportunities and platforms.

Founder of the Visionary Art Community, artist Otto Rapp along with visionary artist and poet Bruce Rimell will work in the team to bring fantastic shows to Europe.

Many of the artist members of AOI are already exhibiting through Dreams and Divinity Shows. AOI tends to favor individual platforms for artists, offering artist pages as vitrines for artwork. Dreams and Divinities pushes for artist collaborations with books showcasing the unified effort of the community. Both organizations bring resources and the community together to promote the fantastic, surrealist and visionary arts. This merger is a logical and complimentary marriage of our two organizations.

The first show we plan to put on in Europe will be launched in Paris late 2015. Submission calls and promotional material will be networked through the ‘Dreams and Divinities-AOI Europe’ site, the main AOI site and the Visionary Art Exhibition site. Keep your eyes peeled for details in late 2014- early 2015 for submission calls.

Please keep in mind that to participate in an AOI show you do need to be a member.

You can find details here:

You do not need to be a member to participate in Dreams and Divinities projects but our projects are full until 2017.

The Art of the Imagination has been promoting fantastic, visionary and surrealist art since 1961.
