Event description

Description

Featuring Brigid O'Kane and Jason Franz of Manifest Gallery.

“The creative process, like a spiritual journey, is intuitive, non-linear, and experiential. It points us toward our essential nature, which is a reflection of the boundless creativity of the universe.”

—John Daido Loori

The work of seeing and the work of making art are intricately linked. This contemplative connection begins with the question, "How do I see..." and expands into "How do I see... myself, the subject, the present moment, all that is?" Until ultimately arriving at... "How might I allow myself-in-this-moment to be seen?" This innocence of the eye, as Minor White calls it, is cultivated through practices of mindful meditation and the making of art as a practice unto itself.

Come join this shared interview, and 30 person group exploration, of the intersection of contemplation and art with two of our city’s arts leaders and Troy Bronsink . The two hour event is open to all levels of art experience and will include a guided contemplative drawing practice.

Brigid O'Kane and Jason Franz co-founded Manifest Gallery and the Manifest Drawing Center over a dozen years ago. They are each, in their own right, artists, advocates for arts education and formation in our city, philosophers, writers, academics, and lovers of the natural world. Brigid will also be co-facilitating a course at the Hive iand Manifest Drawing Center in September entitled “Intersections: Mindfulness + Drawing.”

Troy Bronsink is founder of The Hive, a spiritual director, published author, singer songwriter, and design thinking consultant. He lives with his family in Northside.

Doors open at 7:30, event runs from 8-10am.
