FRIDAY
ART IN THE GRAND VALLEY

WHERE TO FIND FEATURED ARTISTS IN OCTOBER
Red Lion Arts
Gallery & Studios, 970.424.5556
Let's combine our creative forces in honor
of the changing sun, and together, turn an
entire room into a magical, bright, neon
filled wonderland!
Please join us Friday, October 4th to
celebrate the passing of Summer into
Autumn, with our Blacklight Paint Party:
Phoenix Rising…
The legendary phoenix is a large, grand
bird, much like an eagle or peacock. It is
brilliantly colored in reds, purples, and
yellows, as it is associated with the rising
sun and fire. Sometimes a nimbus will
surround it, illuminating it in the sky. Its
eyes are blue and shine like sapphires. It
builds its own funeral pyre or nest and
ignites it with a single clap of its wings.
After death it rises gloriously from the ashes and flies away.
There is a thread of esotericism running through all of the legends of the phoenix
linking the thought of east and west, vitalizing the myth, until the truth it embodies
shines forth like a many faceted jewel, a constant reminder that there is no death, but
only endless change and evolution.
Out of the darkness we shall create light!
Free to the public, and all painting materials, food, and drink will be provided by the
gallery. Painting, dancing, and fun is encouraged. We hope to see you there.
