By definition, Arcana can refer to a deep secret, a mystery, a secret remedy, an elixir. As artists, we each find our secret essence through creation. I discover so many secrets about myself while I am creating and dreaming in my spirit world. Discovering the hidden magic created by working and sharing with other artists has also been an elixir for life. This show, Arcana, is a group exhibition featuring several of the unique and prolific beings in my life that bring to light pure magic. - Amandalynn
