The Jung Center

In Dreams, Visions: Panel Discussion

Wednesday, Jun. 3, 2015

07:00 PM – 08:30 PM

Guests can discover Houston’s vibrant visionary art scene and explore the compulsion to create in this panel discussion hosted by Pete Gershon, author of Paint the Town Orange: The Stories Behind Houston’s Visionary Art Environments. With Kate Burns, Jungian analyst and Alison de Lima Greene, Curator of Contemporary Art and Special Projects at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

This discussion is presented in conjunction with In Dreams, Visions, an exhibition showcasing the work of visionary artists from Houston and the Texas gulf coast, a few of them conventionally trained, but most entirely self-taught.

What they have in common is that they have used images from their dreams as source material for their paintings, drawings, and sculpture. From spiritual rapture to existential torment, from wonder to despair, these artists have revealed their inner psychological landscapes in a way that may help us all to better contemplate and understand our own humanity.
