Group Info

This is a group that illumines and celebrates the intersection of spirituality and the sacred arts. There has been a fundamental change to the very way we look at created images. Modern Art has taught us to see paintings just as panels covered with color. Don't bother delving into a piece of art, observing or experiencing emotions that are not clearly apparent at first glance, letting the work speak to you. If a work of art expresses anything at all, it's whatever preoccupied the artist, the day he or she stood in front of an easel. All is subjective, so concentrate on your own sensory experience. Make up the context. Be free in your interpretation. Whatever meaning you attach to a work of art is just as valid as any other. At one time art was viewed with a different kind of eye. Images were more than just creative arrangements, which might or might not resemble the apple on your kitchen table. They pointed to universally-shared truths. For many believers, images of the sacred served as windows to enlightenment & and still do for some. Unfortunately, these divine portals have closed for the majority of art lovers in our secular age. Is it possible to re-open them? Are there modern artists who have taken up the challenge? It is sacred art-makers, alive and working today, that we are looking for. People of creative energy, genius, and spirituality whose names you may or may not know. We are a collective group of all media who come together to learn, teach and share with each other and the world through our art. "Sacred Art" is imagery intended to uplift the mind to the spiritual. It can be an object to be venerated not for what it is but for what it represents; it symbolizes understanding and feelings that words simply can't describe. Attunement to the beautiful is one of the most important methods of spiritual work, because it contributes to the refinement of the consciousness. Creator is the most subtle form of Consciousness in the universe. Thus, on the way to transcendence, spiritual seekers have to refine themselves as consciousnesses. One can refine the consciousnesses by cultivating subtle positive emotions and refusing coarse ones. The attunement to the most subtle phenomena of living nature and to sublime works of art can be of great help on this Path."
