Atelier 5553

I am honored and delighted to be the Artist in Residence at La Huipilista Artspace in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I fell in love with the region in 2011, while visiting this magical colonial village after making my first pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The importance of the pilgrimage was seeded early in my childhood as I grew up knowing that my birthday was held under the mantle of this most important feast day. It is truly a dream come true for me as an artist to be living, working and exhibiting here, as Artist In Residence, in this place where beauty, color and inspiration abound!

My vision for this show is to provide a visual narrative of my journey and experiences, both in life and art, offered through the lens of the divine feminine perspective, which holds the heart and soul of experience. The art invites you, the viewer, to enter in to a dreamscape. You will seek and find hidden portals that will invite you to discover your own soul’s journey. Symbols embedded in the individual pieces inspire the question, “What dreams are hidden inside the corners of your own heart?”

A collaborative installation is also included, “Love Letters to the Children and Families.” You, our visitors, will be invited to share your thoughts and prayers for those currently impacted by the U.S. administration’s border separation policy.

Please join us at the opening reception Friday, October 12th from 5-7pm at La Huipilista Artspace.

The exhibition will run through November 3rd.

Back by popular demand!

Looking for something fun and *different* to do on Oahu this weekend? Then welcome, and join us for an elegant evening of art, music and champagne! Get inspired to create a life where you feel healthy, happy and whole.

Join singer and songwriter Lucie Lynch and me for a European style Art Salon and Full Moon private concert, featuring my art and Lucie’s music! Mingle with us and our guests at my home and studio, with stunning views of Koko Head and lose yourself in the endless blue of the vast Pacific Ocean. With a glass of champagne in your hand and a variety of delicious pupus to choose from, peruse the art and enjoy an opportunity to really engage with it, up close. Feel free to ask questions and invite conversations. This will be an interactive experience, harkening back to the Gertrude Stein Art Salons in Paris in the early 1900’s.

At 7:00pm, we’ll gather for an exclusive private *Full Moon* concert with Lucie, as she weaves my art into her music, and makes the paintings come alive!

Space is limited, so if this intrigues you, get your tickets now! Only $35.00 for the entire experience, including food, drinks, music and art. $45. at the door

**Please note our *DATE CHANGE only.* It’s come to our attention that our *ORIGINAL DATE* of 1/16/16 is on the MLK Holiday long weekend, so we’ve changed the Event to 1/30/16. If you’re feeling anything like we are (maybe a bit overwhelmed, over-scheduled, or just plain exhausted after all of the Holiday Festivities, you may find this to be a welcome change!)

As you ease into this threshold time of a brand new year ahead, we invite you to take some time to dream, meditate, spend time in nature or just begin browsing through magazines, old calendars, maps & books. When you feel an intuitive connection to an image, word or phrase, just tear it out & begin your “Vision Board Folder.” Don’t worry about ‘why’ you’re drawn to something, just trust that there’s a reason for it. Stay out of your head & instead, remain in an open & curious heart space. As we begin to assemble our Vision Boards on the day of the event, connections will begin to form & puzzle pieces will perhaps(??) begin to make sense. This process is about tuning inwards & listening to your soul’s longings & desires. If you don’t have time to do this ahead of the workshop, that’s fine too.

So, yes, please join us at Glitter Gypsy Studio for this magical Vision Board workshop! Just show up; we’ll take care of the rest. You’ll begin your day being nourished & nurtured by enjoying a gourmet, healthy & scrumptious feast (vegetarian, vegan, gluten & dairy-free options available.) Think delicious salads, fresh herbs, local tropical fruits & fresh seafood, if desired–yum! We’ll then go into a women’s visioning circle to get grounded & connected. Next, the creation of YOUR vision board! No art experience necessary & all materials & instructions provided. Find your “spot” to work- on our ocean-view & Koko Head facing lanais, in the courtyard around the swimming pool, on a cozy chair or cushion, wherever you feel comfortable! Do your own thing, or feel free to ask for guidance. As a special BONUS TREAT, singer/songwriter LUCIE LYNCH will be inspiring us with her angelic voice & beautiful songs! Delicious & nutritious chocolate shakes will be served when you need a little boost mid-afternoon–mmmm… At 4:00, we’ll gather for our closing circle & sharing–breakthroughs, insights, discoveries.

Your hosts: Susan Conrad Risse, Visionary Artist, Teacher & Guide. Susan’s artistic background includes studying, training & coaching with Shiloh Sophia McCloud (founder & CEO of http://www.cosmiccowgirls.com & creator of the 13 step Color of Woman Painting Process & Intentional Creativity.)
