FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEJungle Red Salon Spa Gallery Hosts Art Reception: Dream Yourself AwakeSolo Exhibition Featuring Local Artist Benjamin I. Flint
May 15, 2012 (Minneapolis, MN) -- On Saturday, June 23 from 7pm to 11pm, Jungle Red Salon Spa Gallery will be welcoming back local artist Benjamin I. Flint for a fine art exhibition. Dream Yourself Awake is a collection of artwork created by Benjamin I. Flint exploring ideas of 2012 and the apocalypse. Benjamin’s artwork represents the viewpoint that the apocalypse is not to be feared, but rather embraced as an opportunity to manifest a sustainable, love-based reality. This is not the end of the world, but rather the end of the world as we know it.
This point in time is a crucial apex between the threshold of existence and the known laws of nature and science. We must be stimulated enough to change but not enough to self-destruct. It may seem difficult to make the changes to be happier and more fulfilled, but the struggle is part of the path. Indeed we are being given the biggest decision of all: to be free or to live in domination. As we move into a new awareness about the illusion of fear, we can choose to abandon the old fear-based paradigm that has been used to control and manipulate human beings, and replace it with a fulfilling creation of love, forgiveness, and knowledge.
Dream Yourself Awake will take viewers through visions of awakening and self-realization. We are the imaginers of our own reality -- in order to evolve we must dream it, believe it, and take action. Through his own diverse experiences, Benjamin hopes to help others create a unique understanding based on love and understanding.
Where are we going? What will happen? What can we do to create the world we want to live in at this crucial moment in time? All of these issues will be explored through the visionary artwork on display, written and spoken discussion. Life is a dream, and we are the dreamers and the dream itself. We have the power through self-awareness to change this dream.
Please come join us in a truly one-of-a-kind, beautiful journey through the arts. Enjoy great conversation, hors d’ oeuvres, wine, organic juice bar, live music, live dance performance, tarot and palmistry, and a shamanic energy room.
