Portals can be openings into new realities. They conjure images of liminality, shimmering lights, whirling openings to otherworldly realms, gateways that allow energy to pass between dimensions or doorways for the world of matter to commune with spirit. In our day-to-day lives, portals can have magical or disorienting effects, perhaps causing us to forget why we entered in the first place. Or, a portal might signify personal growth, self-actualization, or transcendence.

THE WILD SIDE: CALIFORNIA WOMEN CELEBRATE THE UNTAMED
Elizabeth Addison, Curator & Cynthia Brannvall, Juror
Arc Studios and Gallery, San Francisco
You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.
To view artwork and catalog, click HERE.
We all have a wild side, whether we stride boldly there or keep it under the radar. Women, traditionally, have been taught to keep their “wildness” under wraps – raucous, adventurous, risk-taking, bold & brave, sometimes licentious, or living outside traditional moral codes. For THE WILD SIDE, California women artists evoke drama, awe, and strong emotions with works that excite visually… and celebrate the untamed!
April 1-May 3, 2022

Perched at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, the West Coast is extremely dynamic and complex. We experience water in its absence, fury, and spiritual significance – from crashing waves and rushing rapids to gurgling flows and gentle splashes. 63 West Coast artists have taken a dive into the deep for Shimmer with works in a wide range of media that inform, inspire, and refresh.
