This group show of mixed media works will address a variety of subjects from personal religious sentiments to the institutions that either inspire or suppress them. The show addresses concepts such as belief systems, divinity, God, Gods, karma, Hell, apocalypse, eternal afterlife and morality.

Organized Religion focuses on the artists’ personal reactions to issues of belief and religion. The works explore systems of thought and ways of living through the filter of religion…personal and political.

The artists in Organized Religion re-personalize traditional religious faith, examine the effects faith has on believers and those around them and forge new spiritual awareness from personal visions of the beyond.

The current clashes within and between traditional belief systems, secular humanism, and holistic spirituality make faith more rife for artistic exploration now than ever before. These struggles saturate our culture now and their outcomes will determine the cultures of the future.

Artists: Treasure Frey, Yoshio Itagaki, Seth Cohen, Chadwick Whitehead, Robert Gullie, John Zaso, Tatiana Kronberg, Michael Krynski
