WAKE-UP! The Political Power of Art and Dreams

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Like surrealism, the political-art movement opposing totalitarianism in the aftermath of the horrors of World War 1, the power of art and dreaming in these turbulent times holds the possibility of social change.

Art and dreams are conduits to truth, paths to healing and transformation. Art and dreams wake us to reality and response.

That is why I am curating and inviting you to “Wake-Up! The Political Power of Art and Dreams,” a mixed media exhibition at the Claudia Chapline Gallery, Stinson Beach, California, October 6-October 28, is set the month before the 2018 Congressional elections to create dialogue and raise consciousness about U.S domestic and foreign policy.

An opening day reception will be held from 2-4 pm on Saturday, October 6.

At the reception; attendees will share/write/sketch their political dreams to inspire positive action.

The exhibition in the pop-up gallery will include works derived from dreams by Northern California artists: Dream Vessels by MARSHA CONNELL; Flag of Death and other images of war by CLAUDIA CHAPLINE; works by artist-activist RICHARD KAMLER; FrankenBush by ADAM HARMS; They Never Stood a Chance, an installation of remembrance and survival by JENNIFER LUGRIS; and Dream Veritas! From Tragedy to Transformation, a multimedia presentation of dream profiles by journalist and exhibition curator JOYCE
LYNN, and more.

Several graphic pieces will capture dreams about Donald Trump.

WAKE-UP! is an activity of the 50 State Initiative of ForFreedoms.org, a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the U.S.

A percentage of sales from the exhibition will be donated to Bay Area peace candidates.

“Etching of me overcoming my cognitive dissonance with regard to Bush regime and false flag terrorism and 9/11″

~~~~~~~~~

Dreams of 9/11 and other political events wake us to reality and response.

DREAM VERITAS! From Tragedy to Transformation, a multimedia presentation, profiles powerful women activists and artists with little known stories of evoking dreams to guide, reveal, and heal personal trauma and create social change:

This army of women dreamers shows us the profound power of remembering, understanding, and listening to our dreams. They include abolitionist Harriet Tubman, German student resistance fighter Sophie Scholl, 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani, graphic designer Sandra Taylor, 9/11 justice advocate Lynn Pentz, anti-war painter and poet Claudia Chapline, peace activist Cindy Sheehan, Iraqi American artist Vian Sora, and landscape and collage artist Marsha Connell. Other dreamers reveal political truths, upending government and corporate controlled media propaganda.

The stories show once inner wisdom is tapped denial is impossible and directed action manifests.

Like surrealism, the political-art movement spawned to oppose totalitarianism in the aftermath of the horrors of World War 1, DREAM VERITAS! relies on the power of dreaming. Moving beyond the confines of dreams in religious doctrines, psychotherapy, or New Age paradigms, DREAM VERITAS revives sacred dreaming, the studded amulet of ancient cultures, making it fashionable once again. Dreams, the voice of the Inner Self, are natural and necessary instruments on our healing journey. Dreaming holds the possibility of world-wide transformation.
