The Third Offering: A Sacred Gallery Space
Arts and creativity provide food for the soul, purpose on the path, and gifts for the Gods and the people. In our Pagan, Polytheistic, and Earth-Centered arts, the sensual and the spiritual are joined, and find expression in our craft. Our shared worldview is grounded within our bodies, our senses, and the earth we inhabit together, as well as taking inspiration from myths, muses, and visions.
We invite you to visit our gallery and temporary shrine, a setting charged with intent to bring an infusion of beauty to the space in the context of Paganicon. As in ritual, a good gallery show brings like minds together for the shared purpose of creation. We believe direct contact with original art in such a setting creates a unique venue for epiphany, awe and transformation, one that is intrinsically different from viewing web-images or reproductions of art in isolation. We hope you enjoy these aesthetic offerings and partake in the conversation about how our community values can find expression through craft and vision.
We will maintain a shrine installation throughout the event. Works in many media will be displayed, and we hope to encourage more artists in the greater Paganistan area to join the hearth of this peer-selected body of work. This year’s show, “Mysterium” resonates with Paganicon’s 2015 theme of “Primal Mysteries”.

This year’s show explores our Primal Mysteries, from the origin of the universe, to the cycles of Love and Sex, Birth, Death and Renewal. Making art is an act of shamanic retrieval, bringing into material being the manifestation of our inspirations. We hope to present the best of your visions, visitations, and ecstatic epiphanies; and share your glimpses into Mystery… Please see our Art Show Guidelines page for general information and a schedule for important dates and times for both artists and art lovers.
