Omnia Scrolls International Art Collaborative Art Project

I will be involved with a cool project coming up called the Omnia Scroll Exhibition. This amazingly awesome project has come about largely due to the efforts of Penelope Oakley. In addition to original artwork on display, large scrolls are being created featuring the artwork of international artists, including me! The next installment of this exhibition will be in March in Venice, Italy! Sweet. Penelope plans to have this show travel to various venues throughout the world. As for me, I have two pieces, Mayan Awakening and Organic Cosmic Lock, that will be printed on scrolls and included in this very unique show.

The Omnia Scroll Exhibition II, 2013

Art Studio, Via Calnova 9/A San Dona di Piave, Venice, Italy
March 2 at 7:00 pm until March 16 at 10:00pm in UTC+01

Beginning in the UK in 2012 this global arts collaboration and exhibition will be touring the world annually. Connecting new artists, exhibitors, galleries and the public alike. 

Artists will exhibit their original artworks and each work exhibited will form part of the collaborative work thus creating “The Omnia Scroll” an ever increasing, continually growing work of art, images transferred onto silk fabric cotton canvas panels which will be connected and embroidered with gold thread. 

The Omnia Scroll and Exhibitions explore the interconnectedness of all things (Latin for all things is Omnia), with each other and our planet. The curator Penelope Oakley being inspired by and fascinated with ancient wisdoms, science, quantum physics, philosophy and spirituality. The untangible mysteries and invisible connections that merge, from the undiscovered depths of our oceans, of nature, the stars with each other and ourselves. Embracing the connections and similarities of ancient wisdoms and quantum physics. The theme of the exhibition to promote positive connections and explore the visual interpretations of each artist, in doing so increasing connections to a wider audience and to each other.

From each original exhibited artwork, a print of which will be transferred onto fabric panels, each artwork creating and becoming a piece of a whole new one, “The Omnia Scroll” will be exhibited alongside the originals. As each exhibition takes place and grows so does The Omnia Scroll, one piece of art, many artists creations, continually evolving. 

Two thousand years ago, “Omnia vivunt, omnia inter se conexa.” Everything is alive; everything is interconnected!” Cicero, Roman Philosopher.

In other news, I am getting ready for my one man show this summer at the Rosenzweig Center in downtown Columbus, Mississippi. The show is slated for the entire month of August with an opening reception on the first Thursday of that month from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. This will be a pretty good sized show with a nice selection of my art. The originals will be for sale as will a variety of prints. Should be a good exhibition.  I hope to have lots of folks show up to see my unique artwork.
