MLY Gallery, whose mission, through the arts, is to render that circle alive and well, is proud to present its newest exhibit, ‘Vision 2013- Our Becoming…’, a collaborative exhibition of works by a remarkably diverse group of artists and visionaries celebrating the birth of the “New Man”--Homo Luminous.
The evolution of man has always fascinated scholars, philosophers, leaders and the ordinary man. From the Mayans to Nostradamus, ancient scriptures and cultures have foretold of the changes to come in the dawn of a new era.
Human beings, aware of their potential creative power, have succeeded in unleashing that power to benefit themselves and mankind, often, but not always, using it responsibly to fulfill our greatest dreams and desires; a commitment for tolerance, peaceful co-existence, a wish to help one another in times of plenty as well as crisis, a conscious desire for environmental conservation and protection are all substantial elements of current national and international debate. Nevertheless, the road to sustainable living has yet to reveal a social understanding of what artist Mary Wright, , simply calls “the interconnection of all life.” In order for humankind to display genuine care for its' natural surroundings, it must be conscious that it, like everything else in nature, is a part of the “circle”, and if we are all to live harmoniously together in this circle, we must treat each other and the planet with infinite respect.
Alberto Villoldo, PhD. a wise teacher and shaman, has written : "No one knows what 2013 and beyond will bring to us individually or as a planet. Expectations range from the end of humanity to the dawn of a new golden age. Whatever awaits us, it is safe to predict that those who have done the inner work to bring forth the best in themselves will be able to meet the upcoming challenges and opportunities with wisdom, equanimity, and grace."
The Earth-keepers of indigenous cultures, and the brave new leaders in the modern world, believe that this is the time we have been waiting for. They are weaving a new dream within their own lives as well as within their leadership in their respective communities. They are choosing to awake and learn from the past nightmares in the history of mankind.
