The Harmony of Materialized Meditations

The exhibition “Materialized Meditations” by Matthew Agcolicol, shown at VISUAL in North Park, is a cohesive grouping of style and graceful design.  There are flowing lines, weaving in and out, building on each other and then receding into infinity.

Francois Beausoleil – Connecting the Elements, Past and Present

Artist Francois Beausoleil’s works in “The Human Experience Translated into Energy, Time Flow and the Concept of a Holographic Universe” at Sophie’s Kensington Gallery are mystical and romantic, illustrating the imagined and the believed.
