May Featured Member Artist - Laura Smith

In Search of Puella
Oil Paintings at City Market

Laura Smith is a farmer, civil servant and dreamer who lives in an intentional community in Huntington, Vermont. She is a student of Archetypal Dreamwork at the North of Eden Center for Archetypal Dreamwork in Montpelier, Vermont.

She has this to say about her work:

In March of 2011, I dreamed that the Anima (female divine Archetypal figure) was teaching me how to paint as we painted together. In the dream, I felt incredible support and love in my place of child-like creativity with her. I felt very close to her, like she really cared about me. It was like she had all the time in the world for me and it didn’t matter if I made a mistake. During a particularly difficult spot in my dreamwork, my dream therapist suggested that I draw or paint an image from the dream. This opened the door to a previously unexplored part of me. I think of this new found creativity as a gift of the dreamwork; something unexpected and profoundly moving for me, a place to deeply explore and feel into what the dreams bring.

February Featured Member Artist - Alicia Pacelli

Astral Inspirations by Alicia Pacelli

I grew up as the daughter of an Astronomy teacher, so stars have always been an important presence in my life.  I can barely name the constellations, (I can really only be sure of the Big and Little Dippers, and Orion's Belt) and I'm lucky if I can identify what appears to be an extremely bright star as a planet (most likely it's Venus).  However, I am and always have been fascinated by the night sky.
