I am excited and honored to have one of my pieces be a part of the upcoming Eco Art Exhibition, “SustainAbility,” at Art 4 All People’s AY Fine Art Gallery in Malibu. The piece to be shown is one of my Universal ARKitecture paintings, Temple of the Sacred Heart, was accepted into this 45 day exhibition and will be featured along with other artists’ creative expressions, all in the theme of SustainAbility.
Art 4 All People shares:
“SustainAbility is an Environmental Art exhibition that features artists who are exploring the pivotal need for stewardship, awareness and advocacy for our ailing Mother Earth. Such eco-artist-warriors, with their individual visions, are shining a powerful light on how can we individually create sustainability through our own actions. These artists inspire us though their transformative art and innovation, and they offer us a glimpse into new ways of being.
The 56-day exhibition will give the audience the abilities, inspiration, insights and tools to create their own sustainable way. During the Sustain Ability exhibition Art 4 All People will be offering unique workshops, lectures, beach cleanups and happenings.”
If you recall, Universal ARKitecture is a series of what I call sacred vessel, animal spirit paintings that hold antidotes for a new “ARKitectural” plan and code of life for creating the New Earth experience. It features endangered and “threatened” species that hold shamanic messages of wisdom teachings to empower us into a new way of being with ourselves, each other, and all of creation, along with bringing awareness to these animals and how to care for Mother Earth and the environment through conscious and compassionate change.
Temple of the Sacred Heart conveys the tender divinity shared between mother and child endangered Asian Elephants (and cosmic creatures) representing strength, honor, stability, patience, loyalty, good luck, fortune, longevity, ancient wisdom, advanced sensitivity, social connection, personal responsibility, determination, confidence, reliability, power, royalty, removal of obstacles, protection…

I LOVE the essence and energy of what Art 4 All People stands for and shares. It mirrors much of my own values and missions and I am grateful that spaces like this exist and continually are being cultivated into the collective community. Art 4 All People is home to a transformative art and yoga studio, retreats, creative vacations, bed and breakfast, and transformative fine art gallery. They host ongoing workshops and retreats all in the name of the evolutionary healing arts.
In their own words:
Art 4 All People is an award winning Transformative Arts and Cultural Retreat Center founded by Lisa Rasmussen, M.F.A. and Ceylan Fadiloglu, M.A.
Ceylan and Lisa are two Renaissance women who truly believe in the intrinsic power of ART to transform, empower, and to potentially heal all who are open to exploring the mystery and the depth of creativity in the breadth of all life. In the beginning of 2012, the two community arts pioneers created Art 4 All People. The primary mission of this Art Hub is to be an international sanctuary, fostering creativity, community, imagination, reverence, and expression in this world.
