The exhibition “Mysteries of the Amazon: Visionary Artwork of Pablo Amaringo and His Students” wraps up this week at the Appleton Museum of Art with a musical performance by Tribe of Love.
The exhibition features Peruvian visionary artwork, some of which are considered to be the best examples of Mestizo vegetalista and ayahuasquero shamanism. Exhibiting stunning and
brilliant use of color, these paintings depict the plant, animal and human devalike (or angelic) spirits encountered in deep ceremonial visionary experiences. The final day is Jan. 14.
On Thursday, Jan. 11, 5-8 p.m. Tribe of Love will sing heart opening melodies, at the Appleton Museum of Art, inspired by ancient medicine songs, called icaros, learned from the plant spirits in the Peruvian Amazon. The intention is to heal the body, mind and spirit. These beautifully harmonized medicine songs are accompanied by rattles, a shruti box, drums, Tibetan bowls, shacapa and didgeridoo.
