Art + Alchemy is an opportunity to create community, adapt to our limited parking, take care of the steep driveway, be mindful of our neighbors and our carbon foot print, on the planet, and be in nature

We are limiting cars/parking, more than people. IF YOU PAY FOR PARKING, BRING YOUR TICKET WITH YOU IN A FULL VEHICLE. Those who get a ride, are also asked to bring their ticket and contribute to gas & the $20 parking fee.

JOIN US in dreaming the Ancient Future into BEING.

Beginning on the Full Moon in October (Sunday Oct. 13th) we will open these portals of possibility, with a sacred obsidian pipe ceremony and a SoulFire circle. For the next 7 days we will weave the gallery into the forest, the dance grounds and the Chamber. We will tend a ceremonial fire and gather with the artists, musicians and community members who are here to help awaken and support this vision of the Ancient Future. Art + Alchemy.

Nature Scene Gallery is a collaborative and curatorial project from Ancient Future Farm & SoulFire SANCTUARY to explore ways humans can engage with the natural world. It is a transforming multi faceted conceptual art work- A performance art piece happening in real time with art as the backdrop for the emergence of “ancient future” culture- collaging our fragmented present culture with more traditional earth based re-emerging practices, alongside music, art, dance, and the sharing of ideas. We engage the forest lovingly and in tribute, as collaborators rather than colonizers.

Currently the most crucial aspect of curating a successful gathering at SoulFire Sanctuary, is volunteerism and CARPOOLING. Since parking is limited at the Sanctuary & the driveway is steep, we are pausing to remember how to be mindful towards the road, the neighbors, and our carbon footprint on the planet. This gathering is for people who make a commitment to Carpool, and pARTicpate in Questioning Car Culture: with Direct Action

The purpose of Nature Scene Gallery is to create a temporary autonomous and nomadic art gallery in wild and forested spaces, where artists, makers and practitioners of creative spirituality, music and healing arts come together as an offering, to awaken this visual and sonic prayer for life. We invite you to engage with art on the land and in the Chamber, as well as pARTicipate in music, song, talking and art circles. There will be a Fluid Art werkshop, children and family art activities, planetary alchemy classes, drum classes, meditations, sound experiences and Chamber sessions.

The Gallery will be up in full formation on Friday October 18th and stay open until Sunday October 20th. To visit and pARTicipate in NATURE SCENE GALLERY, please register and pARTicipate in Carpooling.

Questioning Car Culture: with Direct Action

ART + ALCHEMY is a curated experience, and we are relying on you NetWErk to fill your car!

Art + Alchemy: CoCreation in the Forest is fueled by love and donations. It is a vision of Ceremonial Art, brought forward through Alana Fitzgerald and Mama Mojo, and the community. It is geared for pARTicipation, and reciprocity, stARTing with how you arrive.  We must adapt to the limited parking, to taking care of the steep driveway and being mindful of our neighbors as well as our carbon foot print, on the planet.

BRING YOUR TICKET WITH YOU & ARRIVE IN A FULL VEHICLE. We are limiting cars/parking, more than people!

Those who purchase a parking pass are asked to share extra seats. Those who get a ride, are asked to contribute to the driver for fuel and parking. We are pARTicipating in what Alana has called “a Social Art Piece: Questioning Car Culture: Direct Action.” We will do our pART to provide methods to self-organize carpooling and respond to the real thyme attendance.

Please be conscious of our request! Make rides available & seek rides through the SoulFire  Carpool System! Thank you to those who are purchasing a parking ticket, and those who wish to attend. We ask everyone, including volunteers and artists, to commit to carpooling with 2-3 others.

All attendees will be asked for a donation at the door. If you would like to pay this in advance, you can use the link provided in registration confirmation email.
