Allyson works with a variety of media, allowing the intuitive creative process and intention behind each piece to guide her in choosing the appropriate materials. This show will include ceramic work, acrylic on canvas, and her signature large-scale resin and wood pieces.
"My work is deeply influenced by the divine feminine and cosmic intuition. Each piece is approached through daily ritual and meditation, paired with extensive research in the ancient expression of the feminine. The intuitive and spiritual nature of my creative process allows my work to express the healing and growth innate in being an artist."
Allyson will also be offering an experiential workshop in conjunction with the show, Monday February 11, from 6-8 pm. The artist will lead participants on a journey through the body and to the soul, combining art prompts based on her recent body of work, live sound healing, brief meditations, and journaling. The experience will provide participants an opportunity to fully absorb the healing and growth offered through each piece of art by opening specific areas of the body via sound, journal prompts, and group sharing.
