Faery is a world just a side step away from ours, a world so impossibly magical, but what cost that step: joy, power, fear, innocence, freedom. Guests join Gallery 10 member Lisa Tayerle in creating a magical inter-disciplinary exhibition. Faery, mystical beings, guardian and elemental spirits are the theme for this exhibition which will include: mixed media two and three dimensional work, ritual theater performance, music and dance.

Lisa Tayerle Lisa is a member of Gallery 10, and host for this exhibition. She is a visionary artist and Wiccan priestess. She works in mixed media print and found object assemblage  Creating pieces that speak to the sacredness of the earth.

Marcos Bisticas-Cocoves Marcos is a practitioner of the Reclaiming and Feri traditions of Witchcraft.  Drawing from his visionary experiences, he is  re-creating the Tarot using Photoshop and collage.

Andrea McCluskey  Andrea is a painter, printmaker and sculptoR who lives and works in Frederick, Maryland. She is interested in the relationship between consciousness and the phenomenal world.
Her imagery is drawn from experiences in wilderness and urban spaces.

Jennifer Herbert Jennifer is an artist and dancer from Baltimore, MD.  She is interested in the intersections between the material and imaginary realms, believing that both the physical and the fantastical are necessary for life.

Michael Sylvan Robinson: A visionary fiber artist, Robinson’s pieces are created with extensive hand sewing and beading.  Originally a costume designer and performance artist from New York City, his art
has been shown in galleries and exhibitions including the National Queer Arts Festival in San Francisco (2009). He is a semi-finalist for the 2010 Sondheim Prize, and his work will be exhibited in this year’s Artscape.
