Artist in Residence 2005

In 2004, Awakening Arts Institute's Artist in Residence Louise Amelia Phelps from Glastonbury England had an opening at the Flying Hare Gallery in Grass Valley California. This year, Louise showed her work in the new gallery at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma ( Louise showed two series of work; "The Mother of Stars" and "Eternities Children".

Her reception was part of an enchanting evening called the "Star Garden Party" which also featured the band of Linda Webb Khakaba and a laser light show by Nini Tantrini and Cherry Optical Holography. Louise read her poetry to a mesmerized audience. In this year's residency at Awakening Arts Institute, Louise completed her first book combining her poetry and her art. The first edition was sold out!

Below are pictures of the Star Garden Party, below it are pictures of last year's Grass Valley reception. For information about the Arts at IONS programs please contact Dana Lynne Andersen ( or email arts@ions.
