From the 1st to the 9th of April we have been holding the Candle of Vision exhibition. Organised to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of author, artist and mystic George William Russell, the exhibition featured work from artists working with esoteric themes.. We had work from the four corners of Ireland, both literally and figuratively as we had representation from every province. Running nine days (until the 9th of April) the exhibition was a decided success with many visitors from both near and far. Creating spaces for community to happen is important for us, and we hope to pioneer similar projects in the future.
A digital gallery is also in preparation.
On 8th of April we organised a day of talks, workshops, readings and performances to mark both the AE anniversary, and the annual event of the Three Days of the Writing of the Book of The Law, an important day for Thelemites. The day saw an opening ritual, talks by Anne Crossey on art and esotericism, a talk by Brian Breathnach on the magick of Liber AL vel Legis, a soundbath from Sacred Sound Studios NI, a series of readings, a dance performance by Aepril Schaile, poetry, stories, feasting and other wonderful things. We also launched our library project and a special anniversary edition of the book The Candle of Vision by AE. Plans are already underway for next years event which will be even bigger and better!
Our next event, Feis Beltaine is on the 29th of April. Come along and find out about what we do in person!
