Alex Grey and Allyson Grey have been the dynamic duo of visionary art for decades, hosting the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, formerly in NYC, and now in upstate NY.

I was lucky enough to be in NY at just the right time to attend their lecture at Omega Institute as well as their monthly Art Church at their Chapel of Sacred Mirrors museum/center in Wappingers Falls, NY, last year - and I've always wished to be able to be able to go to more. And now that they are having their meetings online, it's easy to attend from anywhere! Tune in here to experience Art Church on Sunday, April 12, at 1:00 pm EST.

What's Art Church?

Art Church is a monthly Sunday afternoon event led by visionary artists Alex and Allyson Grey where participants draw their visions or write their thoughts or poetry to music, (so you will want to have your favorite art materials nearby, or a journal.) Alex and Allyson open these sessions with thoughts and reflections on the topic that might stimulate a vision. Inspiring spoken word poetry opens the silent drawing meditation accompanied by inspiring music. The meditation is followed by sharing the experience of creative silence together and the art or writing that resulted from the session.

Allyson and Alex are artists focused on sacred visionary art. Allyson is a conceptual abstract painter who focuses on Chaos, Order & Secret Writing. Alex's art art is a complex integration of body, mind, and spirit. He is is best known for his paintings of glowing anatomical human bodies, images that "x-ray" the multiple layers of reality, as well as a number of books, including Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey.
