Teri Leigh Teed’s fine art photograph, “Portal of Light”, part of her “Healing Spirit Art©” portfolio, has been selected for an Award of Excellence in the New York based Art That Lifts Our Spirits exhibition, which runs from August 15 – October 15, 2019. Teed is one of over 50 contemporary artists from around the world chosen for the juried show.
Art That Lifts Our Spirits exhibition is featured on the Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS website www.healing-power-of-art.org. The organization is a community of artists, writers and activists who believe that ART has the power to provide a sense of well-being and heal, inspire, provoke, challenge and offer hope. ART also serves as a positive catalyst for raising awareness about individuals, society and the environment.
“Through photography Teri expresses the life-affirming presence of a power greater than us. Her images evoke feelings of hope and unlimited possibilities,” states Renée Phillips, Founder/Director of Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS and Founder/Director/Curator of Manhattan Arts International.
“This online art exhibition ‘Art That Lifts Our Spirits’ will offer viewers the opportunity to experience a powerful transformation through visual art. The art reflects technical prowess and originality, impacts me viscerally in a positive manner, and fits the theme. The exhibition will serve as a resource for art buyers and art consultants seeking uplifting art for their homes and offices as well as for healthcare and wellness venues”, added Ms. Phillips.
