Announcing an exciting live webcast on July 21, 2012!
On July 21, 2012. the worlds of tattooing and visionary art will come together in a live event at Alex Grey’s historic Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in upstate New York. At this event, veteran tattooists Guy Aitchison and Michele Wortman will be teaching a workshop on Visionary Tattooing- that is, tattoos that come from the imagination that are done with the intention of healing, empowerment or positive transformation. There is limited seating available- check out ›› this page for more information on tickets.
For those who can’t make it in person, though, we are trying something a little different- a live webcast of the evening’s events. Just by going to this page, you can watch and listen to everything that happens at the CoSM gallery that evening, including:
• Screening of the documentary Innerstate, nominated for Best Documentary at the 2010 Great Lakes Film Festival, about tattooists creating visionary paintings- you can see a trailer for it here:
• Live webcast of a dynamic panel talk on visionary, magical and ritual tattooing, featuring Alex and Allyson Grey, Guy Aitchison, Michele Wortman,James Kern and Natan Alexander;
• Webcast of a live painting event that will go from the end of the panel talk until the wee hours. Alex, Allyson, Guy and Michele will be creating visionary paintings while DJs keep the energy going. You can check out some previous live painting events here:
You can also see a short promotional video of the day’s events here: http://www.youtube.com/
The webcast is free to the public. Mark it in your calendars for July 21 at 5:00pm EST!
