Hello world! Please join the Collective of Compassionate Rebels!
We are like the joyous Guan Yin pictured: “One who hears the cries of the world” and we respond.
We might be writers. Photographers. Painters. We might grow food or children. We might make wine or music. We use our eyes to see the world. We use our hands to help others.
Each day this blog will post a piece of art to inspire, motivate and recognize us as we travel our path as compassionate rebels. You can receive a notification of these posts by email by signing up to subscribe to this blog by email below.
Comments are welcome as are suggestions of artists to feature. The priority is to showcase contemporary, local artists. By contemporary, I mean art made in the lifetime of the readers here–so from the 1930s or so to now, with a preference for work produced this century. By local, I mean artists that are local to the readers here. So if there’s someone you’d like to recommend, who is local to you, please do!
Until I hear from you via a comment or an email (gwendolynalley AT yahoo DOT com), I will be publishing work that’s local and contemporary to me. (You can learn more about me here or from my other blogs, listed below). Many of my friends are artists and I look forward to sharing their work. On the First Friday of each month, I take part in the First Friday ArtRides where we ride around town and look at art, so I will be posting work by artists that we will be seeing on the upcoming ride. You can read more about the ArtRides at my blog, Bikergo Gal. I also blog about an eclectic variety of topics at Art Predator, about wine at Wine Predator, and about literary arts at The Write Alley.
Thank you for visiting “Compassionate Rebel.” Please join our collective!
