Join us for the 2018 Ollom Art Festival celebrating 15 years of creating art and to help us raise monies for our Art Heals© Workshops in 2019. The festival will be held at One Art Space in New York City from November 10 – 15 and will present works from 15 artists and writers and features workshops, panel discussions, performance art, sculptures, film and installations. Times will also be available for individual Internal Landscapes© and Spirit of Color© sessions with Artistic Director John Ollom.
For over 15 years we have discovered that art can truly heal people in ways unlike anything else. Our goal is to reach out to communities across the country, collaborating with local artists and healing organizations to help demonstrate to communities how artists can help open channels to revealing our most authentic selves.
The theme of the festival is “The Hole Project: Mining Portals of Vulnerabilty”. This multi-disciplinary art experience encompasses inquiries into literal and metaphoric holes in our somatic bodies and our psychic selves.
We have also teamed with some select artists to share or demonstrate how art has been a healing process to them. Workshops will be presented Sunday to Wednesday. Space is limited for each workshop so please register early. Each session will be $20 or an all festival pass will be available. Workshop registration will be available shortly.
Featured artists include:
R. Bremner – Gary Michael Collins – Don DeMauro – David Fischweicher – Vaughan Grey – Regan Drouin Halas – Jeanette Hardie* – Neena Massey* – Lindsay Metcalf* – Richard Jeffrey Newman* – Dennis Nauert – John C. Ollom* – Jim Sable – Lisa Samalin* and Marlene Tholl
