Art & The Sentient Being
the first in a series of three multiarts shows exploring what art is and why it's important: to awaken sentient experience; to create other worlds through art, play & ritual; to communicate with many levels of self
January 15 - April 26 2016
and Opening & Closing Receptions
Life Force Arts Center's 2016 exhibits, The Creative Soul series, explores three different meanings of what art is and why it's important: to awaken sentient experience, to create other worlds through art, play and ritual, and to communicate with the many levels of self. The exhibit Art & The Sentient Being explores art expressing the soul: the energy that makes one animate rather than inanimate; how art helps us become more alive, feeling and conscious (sentient). Experience how the senses relate to the arts to improve perception and expression. Art is aesthetic, increasing one's sensibility; the opposite of aesthetic is anesthetic.
The artwork in this exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and installation. Life Force Arts Center Artistic Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about the theme. At LFAC, our art exhibits create sacred space in which events become healing rituals: performances, concerts, poetry readings, workshops, lectures are all infused with transformative power to heal and enlighten the those present."

The mission of Life Force Arts Center (LFAC) is to activate the spiritual power of the visual, literary and performing arts. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists of diverse spiritual traditions present artistically excellent exhibits, events and publications to awaken human potential, create spiritual transformation and connect audiences to the mystical dimension.
