Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Artwork by Tattfoo Tan
Mar 2 @ 11:00 AM – Dec 29 @ 5:00 PM

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?  In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

In My Element: Photography by Gail Middleton & Mike Shane
Mar 2 @ 11:00 AM – May 5 @ 5:00 PM

In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty.  Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking.  Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

Gail Middleton is a long-time West Brighton resident who is a frequent visitor to all Staten Island parks.  She is always seen with her camera capturing images of scenery and wildlife.  Middleton specializes in nature photography and portraits and has also organized and curated several shows. She was a recipient of a 2013 DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts for her project Breaking Bread.  She has also received a 2018 DCA Art Fund Grant from Staten Island Arts to organize and coordinate “Staten Island 48:00 ~ Another Day in the Life of Staten Island” photo shoot of Staten Island in June 2018.

Mike Shane is a photographer born and bred in Staten Island, New York. He was raised in a family of artists, training his eyes, and honing his creative vision in the inspiring crossroads of suburban and metropolitan. He grew up drawing, later discovered graffiti, earned a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration just over the Verrazano Bridge, at Kingsborough Community College. That is where Mike haphazardly discovered photography. Since then, he’s spent the past 16 years self-educating to make photography his “Weapon of Choice” across all aspects of his life. At 36 years young, Mike Shane uses photography for both personal and professional expression and to share a fresh perspective of the places he so fondly calls HOME.

All exhibits and programs are located in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G).  Admission is $5 ($4 students/seniors).  Free for students grades 6-12 with student ID.

Spring – Autumn hours are Thurs-Fri 12:00 – 7:00 PM and Sat – Sun 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Paul Campbell, Selected Works 1999-2019
Mar 2 @ 11:00 AM – May 5 @ 5:00 PM

This exhibition surveys the work of NYC-based painter Paul Campbell from 1999-2019, with an emphasis on new work. Since 1998, Campbell has used remote control toys, spiky plastic balls, string, GPS tracks, and other non-conventional tools to create works that simultaneously pay homage and parody the great abstract painters of the past. He combines non-traditional and traditional painting methods to create hybrid images.

Although the works are abstract in appearance they often suggest elements of nature, fireworks, portals into some unknown world, and influences of other cultures and traditions. They represent movement and are a metaphor for connections that exist in our everyday lives.

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Divine Feminine with Erin Sickler
May 18 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

There has been a ton of talk lately about the Divine Feminine. Even if we feel the affinity to those words, however, we need to first clarify: What is this Divine Feminine? How do we relate to something that has been suppressed and so infrequently discussed or represented? In this talk and discussion, art curator and writer Erin Sickler, will take us on a tour of three figures of the feminine divine–Isis, the High Priestess; Haumea, the Mother Goddess of Hawaii; and Lilith, the spirit of vengeance and the shadow–and how we can harness the lessons of these archetypes for our own individual and collective transformation.

The event will consist of an overview of the stories of Isis, Haumea, and Lilith, and how we might use these archetypes for our own physical, emotional, and psychological healing as well as some somatic exercises.

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Connecting to Dreams with Healing Plants with Liz Neves of Gathering Ground
Jun 8 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Whether you have a dreaming practice or don’t ever remember your dreams…

Let us gather in circle to share our experiences in the Dreamtime – a vital part of life with great potential for healing that often goes unnoticed, untapped, or misunderstood.

It’s time to wake up to the medicine of your dreams and follow the threads of meaning and magic they hold.

Join us for a couple of hours of fun, experiential learning and deepening of psyche awareness, where we’ll:

• Touch on techniques and sample herbs that improve dream recall and stimulate lucid dreaming
• Create dream sachets to support our practice
• Share our dreams and unpack them with group exercises
• Journey to elements of our dreams that draw us in or offer healing messages

Please bring a journal, a small crystal or stone, and a dream to share!

*Dreams can include: what we remember from our sleeping dreams, daydreams, strong hunches or feelings that lead to serendipitous occurrences, or visions/feelings/sounds from journeys or guided meditations.

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Group Breath-work Session with Ambrose Gage
Jul 20 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Rebirthing breath work uses a conscious connected breathing technique to release tension and stored emotions in body, which makes space for new thoughts, actions, and possibilities in your life. Clearing the emotional past brings you into the present, into the body, restores innocence, and increases vitality.

The breath work process is a powerful and gentle method of bringing in more life and releasing constrained and withheld energy in the body — allowing yourself to experience your expansiveness profoundly. An efficient way to see long-term progress and growth is to do a series of at least five consistent sessions with one experienced practitioner.

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Adults Soul Painting Ceremony with Bianca Dominguez
Aug 17 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Soul paintings mirror the true essence within each individual. Each soul has layers upon layers that rest within, mirroring multiple timelines of existence, and reflecting past lives. During the ceremony, the karmic cords and the shadows of the self are illuminated to be acknowledged and healed through the power of breath, meditation, and creative expression.

We will begin in a circle sitting down in lotus position. Palo Santo will be passed around to cleanse and bless our bodies. In the center of the circle will an altar which will enable us to hold space for one another, and as we journey within. The facilitator will lead the ceremony from the center. We will begin with a guided meditation focusing on our breathing and dropping within our bodies. The facilitator will open the space with a prayer of guidance, protection and love calling upon the ancestors, light beings, spirit guides, angels, spirit animals and the Great Spirit. We will rest in meditation for 10-15 minutes, at which point they begin the soul paintings on themselves. A mirror will be placed in front of each person. They will do only half of their face. After they complete half of their face they will get with a partner. First they will meditate with their backs supporting one another focusing on the breath. The purpose is to tune into the interconnected energy that resides within them both. Being mindful of their internal space as well as their partner’s internal space. After 5 min, they will turn to face one another and soul gaze. After 5 min partner A will complete the other half of partner B’s face. After partner B’s face is complete they will do the same for partner A. To close the space a guided meditation will begin and a closing gratitude prayer.
