An exhibition spanning two galleries and college campuses exploring the spiritual\, metaphysical and alchemical in contemporary art&zwnj\;

\n

LMU's Laband Art Gallery and the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design are pleased to present a large group exhibition\, \;Tapping the Third Realm \;which includes the work of thirty-four artists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues: conj uring\, communication\, collaboration and chance. It explores how artists t ap into another dimension\, whether it be a place of spirits\, ideas of hea ven\, or the collective unconscious. Elements of magic\, witchcraft\, and p rofound attention or intuition are evident in the artists&rsquo\; creative processes. In this collection of work there are portals to the spirit world \, communications with the dead\, spells manifested in glass\, prayers as d rawings\, potions as paintings\, and dreams transformed into sculpture. Thi s exhibition is curated by Meg Linton\, Director of Galleries and Exhibitio ns\, Ben Maltz Gallery\, Otis College of Art and Design and Carolyn Peter\, Director and Curator\, Laband Art Gallery\, Loyola Marymount University.
