Three artists from this show will be selected to present in a group show later in the year and this exhibit and it’s themes are slated to be an annual event.
“Wyld Womxn is proud to partner with Simeon Den Gallery,” says the feminist collective’s founder Michelle Castillo, “The collective resonates with the gallery’s values of highlighting diversity, intergenerational connectivity, and inclusivity which helps to bridge the gaps within the community.” The slate of programs will expand upon the art show theme, creating intersectional dialogue and offering dimensions through multiple creative disciplines.
From the eclectic to the sublime, Simeon Den directs a non-traditional gallery and e-commerce enterprise that showcases his personal métier in the contemporary and temple arts. His contemporary art niche attends to the spiritual and transcendent schools, the minimalist style, the Zen aesthetic, the figurative and whimsical influences, and the political and subversive beauty of LGBTQ expressions in art. The gallery also functions as a community building effort by hosting and offering classes and workshops in the Temple Arts—yoga, tai ch’I, meditation groups, sound bath sessions, a writers circle, feng shui services, bereavement group, Zen brush painting, and various performance-based activities including Butoh Dance and live improvised music making.Information regarding the month long programming are on the Gallery website:
