Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is pleased to present Inner Journeys Outer Visions, a group exhibition that showcases artists who mine other disciplines like psychology, anthropology, physics and science, philosophy, and theology to explore “something more than ordinary perception in our lives,” says curator Sara Cannon. Artists in the exhibition are Lynn Aldrich, Craig Keith Antrim, Adam Berg, John Frame, Bonita Helmer, Gilah Yelin Hirsch, Ruth, Weisberg, and Patty Wickman.
Inner Journeys Outer Visions looks at the persistent yearning for spiritual enlightenment in contemporary thought and art. Through the ages and through a diversity of styles and thinking artists have explored color theory, abstraction, psychology, religion, the occult, and esoterica as sources to make visible the invisible and to illuminate the unfathomable through art.
The artists in Inner Journeys, Outer Visions continue the long conversation between art and the viewer about beyond-the-ordinary, awareness-heightening experiences and the role of spirituality, transcendence, the mystical and the sublime in contemporary art and culture. Displaying wide-ranging techniques and stylistic approaches to evoke aesthetic and emotional responses, the artists in the exhibition draw the viewer into visionary states of being, timeless landscapes, and heightened awareness of other worlds.
