Divergent connectivity’s after math

Opening night for Divergent Connectivity was April 5, 2019 7 pm

Currently new art has replaced some of the original art from that show and new artists have joined the gallery as resident artists. The latest work focuses more on live art demonstrations

Running till August 2019

Original Exhibit Description still applies, with a few new changes to schedules of live art and new works being produced. Currently most of the art is available in person only or by enquiry.

Lotus Art Gallery presents a collaboration of the divergent minds. It is an exhibit which focuses on art created solely by our current Artists in Residency. THIS EXHIBIT invites YOU to Come and EXPERIENCE reflections from YOUR soul.

Amaury Fortuna, Sherry Goguen,  Jay Dontae and Denise Van Domselaar have spent hours at the art gallery working on their art and meeting with people. The one thing they all noticed, while doing live art, is the essence or importance of the INTERACTION between their ART their AUDIENCE.

They all agreed that it is difficult to describe art, not only because a picture speaks louder than words, but also because it is the audience plays an important part in doing so.

Art comes to life when experienced” ~Lotus Art Gallery Curator.

Resident Artist noticed that people will always INTERPRET ART DIFFERENTLY, it is in-fact subjective, but they should know how important they are. People’s INTERACTION with art gives Artists a SENSE of PEACEFULNESS and ART then comes to life. That interaction is like a mirror and in that there is DIVERGENT CONNECTIVITY.

As a result, THIS EXHIBIT invites YOU to Come and experience REFLECTIONS from YOUR soul and meet these artists during their artist hours at the gallery. We hope that you will enjoy their live art presentations.  

Schedule of the Live Art Presentations: 

Jay will be presenting “Escapism” (not present, except during the opening night)

Josh Harnack will be presenting Animals tuesdays 12-4pm  

Denise will be presenting “we are nature “ on Wednesdays 12-4pm 

Sherry will no longer be presenting “the connection”  on Thursdays 5-8pm; Instead Viktoria Marczisak will be presenting the connection 5-8pm

Amaury Fortuna will be presenting “the lesson”  on Sundays with Norm 12-5pm

Mariam will be presenting movement  

Each artist invites you to consider his or her work as a mirror reflecting unique perspective on how divergent views and styles connect in a common theme of the “soul”.

  • Do you see aspects of yourself in their expressed perspectives?

  • Does the artist’s interpretation of soul engage your own?

  • Where do you connect? Disconnect? What might you add to the dialogue?

  • Who or what do you see?

The art work focuses on expressionism in various styles and varies in sizes and value.

These are all ORIGINAL PIECES and available only in person during this exhibit. All rights are reserved to each artist.
