“The Collective Dream,” mixed media on archival paper by Seda Baghdasarian, 2013.
Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery is proud to present its newest exhibit, Vision 2013- Our Becoming , with an opening reception on Feb. 2. The exhibit, which also includes various talks, poetry readings, musical events and presentations, runs through March with a collaborative exhibition of works by a remarkably diverse group of artists and visionaries celebrating the birth of the New Man, Homo Luminous.
The road to sustainable living has yet to reveal a social understanding of what Malibu artist Mary Wright, simply calls the interconnection of all life. In order for humankind to display genuine care for its natural surroundings, it must be conscious that it, like everything else in nature, is a part of the circle, and if we are all to live harmoniously together in this circle, we must treat each other and the planet with infinite respect.
Alberto Villoldo PhD., a wise teacher and shaman, has written: " No one knows what 2013 and beyond will bring to us individually or as a planet. Whatever awaits us, it is safe to predict that those who have done the inner work to bring forth the best in themselves will be able to meet the upcoming challenges and opportunities with wisdom, equanimity, and grace."
The Earth-keepers of indigenous cultures, and the brave new leaders in the modern world, believe that this is the time we have been waiting for. They are weaving a new dream within their own lives as well as within their leadership in their respective communities. They are choosing to awake and learn from the past nightmares in the history of mankind.
The gallery is located at 3939 Cross Creek Rd., Malibu. Hours are Tues.-Fri., 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., 12-6 p.m.
