Lacey Vilandry ~ Painting as Meditation
1pm Saturday Art Village
Here we explore the more introspective aspects of painting. Starting from abstraction, and pulling out forms, we let our subconscious mind and universal connection to speak through the brush. Art can show us windows into ourselves that we may be unaware of, and through this mindful method, our focus is on the journey, not the destination. All abilities welcome.
Bio Lacey Vilandry
I am a painter from Lexington, Virginia and a co-founder of an arts collective called the Pigment Sanctuary. We have been directing art galleries at festivals for two years as the Pigment Sanctuary, and for several years before that as individuals.
