Nature Studies Journal in Effect

Nature Studies Journal is now live. Artists and art therapists, poets and students come together to discover our how spirits travel through the minutiae of our neurons and slag through the mud. We seek contagions of inspiration.

Our first issue includes oil paintings by Robert Zurer, poetry by Emily Linstrom and a Q and A on her project Gilda’s Girls. Poetry by Amy Leon, essays on art therapy and the creative process by Susanne Oellinger, Sarah Valeri, Kristin Gahlbeck just to name a few.

This is our first issue and we are learning the way, but our hope is to be a multilingual connector between those who seek openness and transformation through art.

Many thanks,

New website

I’ve just put together a summary of sorts of paintings and drawings on a new website. New works will be posted there at www.sarahvaleri.net.

And in the meantime I’ll be  drawing with the music of many talented musicians at the OXFAM JAM at The Knitting Factory on March 7. Proceeds will support OXFAM in fighting poverty and hunger around the world.

And so soon, all the marks and gestures will speak for themselves without all of this troubling explaining. After which I will surely retire for quiet painting for quite awhile. But please do come, Stefi and I are looking forward to welcoming everyone who has helped us along the way, in person or in spirit.

November 8, 2 pm, Nothaft und Seidel, Schonhauser Alle 43A, Berlin

We will be lucky enough to have Maura Souloud performing. Works will be up through December.
