Art Convergence 2013 in Philmont, New York

Art Convergence 2013
For the past three years Free Columbia, in collaboration with the Arts Section of the School for Spiritual Science, has run a summer conference exploring the relation of current art to spiritual science. This year we have chosen a different format in which to work. In order to deepen the work, a small group of artists has been working during the year investigating descriptions of artistic process. This group will work together in late July and early August on various projects. There will be both individual work and collaborations. During the week of work we will share with each other the dynamics of our artistic process. In the evenings we will offer performances for the public and on Saturday August 3rd we will have a day, open to the public, in which we will invite conversation, presentation and interaction. 

The public day will be on Saturday, August 3 at 84 Main Street in Philmont. We will begin at 10 am but the form of the day will be developed during the convergence week. In some way it will include an exhibit of visual art, conversations and perhaps interactive performances. If you are interested in attending the public day please feel very warmly invited to do so. Donations will be gratefully accepted but there is not a charge for the public events. For more information you may call Laura Summer 518 672 7302.
84 Main Street Philmont NY 7:30 pm
