Closing Reception: The Dream and The Dreamer


Tomorrow at 218 McDowell St, from 7pm-11pm 

The Vanderelli Room

Please join us for the closing reception for the Dream and the Dreamer…. here is your last opportunity to spend time with all these works together in one gigantic space! Meet and talk with the artists while listening to music from Doctor Umbrella! I look forward to seeing you all here!

We are all dreamers living and expressing a dream. We as artists aspire to reach beyond the tangible, and whether it is the chaos or the beauty which inspires, we have the ability to present to the world how we move through this life. There is a quality in The Dreamer that enables him or her to look beyond the day-to-day and into the dream. Living The Dream is the The Dreamer. There is an unrest within The Dreamer. And in this unrest is where one will discover his or her expressive reaction to The Dream. Eckhart Tolle says, “When we are awake within the dream, the ego created earth drama comes to an end and a more benign and wondrous dream arises”.

We would like to congratulate OAL artists Cyrus Fire, Stephanie Rond, Amy Leibrand, Ralph Corriveau, Cody Heichel, Lisa Mclymont, and Jay Moffett for being apart of this exhibition along with artists: Rob Jones, Angela Jann, Catherine Bell Smith, Becca Lynn, Michael Halliday, Tom Kelly, Michael Bush, Andrew Lundberg, Just Jerry, Ric Stewart, Amandda Tirey, Cyndi Bellerose, Christopher Tennant, W. Ralph Walters, Lou McAfee, Christin Hutchinson and Albert Gray.
