Alice Schwager Art Show and Reception

alicebanner3

Join us on Saturday, September 17th at 1:00 p.m. to meet the artist and view this fabulous show.

The title off the show is “HEALING VIBRATIONS”.The paintings I selected have this common theme and

their mission of being messengers of healing.

Artist statement :

“I believe that everything in this Universe is energy and everything in life is vibration. Vibrational art is artwork that was created with a healing intention.My experimentation with vibrant colors, texture, collage, mixed media materials and manipulation of form is intended to create paintings that have an important mission.They are messengers of HEALING. My hope is that as you gaze upon the paintings and reflect, that you may find some healing force within you.”
