Meet the artists and join us for a ritual art performance by the Mythic Players, sponsored by Temple of the Goddess, directed by Xia and Ananda at 3:15 p.m. (Otis) and 4:45 p.m. (LMU).

“Tapping the Third Realmpresents the work of 34 artists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues: conjuring, communication, collaboration and chance. It explores how artists tap into another dimension, whether that is a place of spirits, ideas of heaven, or the collective unconscious.

Elements of magic, witchcraft, and profound attention or intuition are evident in the artists’ creative processes. In this collection of work there are portals to the spirit world, communications with the dead, spells manifested in glass, prayers as drawings, potions as paintings, and dreams transformed into sculpture.

Artists in the Exhibition: Ruth Ann Anderson, Annie Buckley, Christopher Bucklow, John Cage, Linda Ekstrom, Clodagh Emoe, Amanda Yates Garcia, Cliff Garten, Cheri Gaulke, Zach Harris, Philip Havice, Alicia Henry, Gilah Yelin Hirsch, Kyle August Lind, David Lloyd, Dane Mitchell, Christina Ondrus, Naida Osline, Sohan Qadri, Ron Regé, Jr., Ross Rudel, Liza Ryan, Betye Saar, Marie Schoeff, Kenzi Shiokava, Linda Stark, Andrés Torres-Vives, Dani Tull, Linda Vallejo, Anne Walsh and Chris Kubick, Bryan McGovern Wilson, Tom Wudl, and Rebecca Tull Yates.

Multiple public programs begin Sept. 22 and run through Dec. 8, including gallery talks, meet-the-artist events, theatricals, moonlit walk and more.
