After the brilliant success of the Canadian Society for Art of Imagination, I would like to introduce Liba Stambollion who is already well-known as an Artist and Book Creator and fabulous Exhibitions Organizer.
She has kindly agreed to be our leader for the European Society for Art of Imagination, and already has ideas for our next Shows in Europe!
So a warm welcome to Liba!
Liba will now be writing about her plans:
I am honored to have the trust of Brigid Marlin and company to turn this new page in the AOI story. This marriage between Dreams and Divinities and AOI will allow us to merge resources, opportunities and platforms.
Visionary artist and poet Bruce Rimell and the founder of the Visionary Art Community
artist Otto Rapp will work in the team to bring fantastic shows to Europe.
Many of the artist members of AOI are already exhibiting through Dreams and Divinity Shows. AOI tends to favor individual platforms for artists, offering artist pages as vitrines for artwork. Dreams and Divinities pushes for artist collaborations with books showcasing the unified effort of the community. Both organizations bring resources and the community together to promote the fantastic, surrealist and visionary arts. This merger is a logical and complimentary marriage of our two organizations.
The first show we plan to put on in Europe will be launched in Paris late 2015. Submission calls and promotional material will be networked through the ‘Dreams and Divinities-AOI Europe’ site, the main AOI site and the Visionary Art Exhibition site. Keep your eyes peeled for details in late 2014- early 2015 for submission calls.
Please keep in mind that to participate in an AOI show you do need to be a member.

You do not need to be a member to participate in Dreams and Divinities projects but our projects are full until 2017.
The Art of the Imagination has been promoting fantastic, visionary and surrealist art since 1961.
