\n

A large group exhibition\, \; Tapping the Third Realm \;presents the work of thirty-three ar tists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues: conjur ing\, communication\, collaboration and chance. It explores how artists tap into another dimension\, whether it be a place of spirits\, ideas of heave n\, or the collective unconscious. Elements of magic\, witchcraft\, and pro found attention or intuition are evident in the artists' creative processes . In this collection of work there are portals to the spirit world\, commun ications with the dead\, spells manifested in glass\, prayers as drawings\, potions as paintings\, and dreams transformed into sculpture. This exhibit ion is curated by Meg Linton\, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions\, Ben Maltz Gallery\, Otis College of Art and Design and Carolyn Peter\, Director and Curator\, Laband Art Gallery\, Loyola Marymount University.
