The galleries at Watermark Arts continue to grow as we move towards the end of 2017. We welcome four new artists from two continents; each deeply involved in somatic movement. From film to poetry, from sculpture to drawing, their work demonstrates a new way of living and being.

The Stillness of Movement
The innate movement within each work of art allows the viewer’s eyes and body to naturally respond and move with the art, as well as receive the art entirely at once.In this way the art may be seen as akin to mandalas and other meditative art, which inherently calm and move the viewer, while reflecting the way in which the natural world is always subtly or grossly in motion; on the atomic or celestial levels. - Eric Archer
Continuum.... reveals the path for a full incarnation of the spiritual dimension in life. In Italian the word “meditation” is composed this way: medit-azione; “azione” literally means action. So the inquiry of Continuum turns to be inspirational to a deeper acknowledgment and manifestation of consciousness. - Claudia Catani
Being involved in Continuum since 1996....has allowed me to soften my shell, to experience more sensation. Due to Continuum, I aspire to more interspacial flow – to a loose impression in my sculpture reflecting the free spirit of my true nature and those of my subjects. - Peggy Kauffman
Impelled by the culture’s rapid loss of connection with nature and the body, I have returned to my first medium, filmmaking. My documentary Falling for the Mountain is a love story between people and the land my family inherited in the Swiss Alps.
