posted : 2009.Dec.25 @ 10.59pm








Pod celebrates the splendor of this seasons visionary convergence. Join us on January 9 in Los Angeles when the Temple of Visions dives onto the Los Angeles art scene with a new 2500 sq. ft. gallery & sacred space. Helmed by downtown resident & art scene regular Jimmy Bleyer, Temple of Visions seeks to bridge International visionary culture with the Los Angeles art world.
The gallery of contemporary spiritual art will feature two permanent installations. In the main gallery, Dreaming Co:nexus, a collaborative group from the Pacific Northwest, will build a luscious and natural Earth Temple. Progressing through the gallery, you will find the Galactic Temple performance space, created by San Francisco Pod's Own artist XAVI. Additionally, the gallery contains a guest curator’s salon, retail & print store, a raw food bar, and a 500 sq ft malleable space for special events, live art, etc. 


The Earth Temple will house the opening group show, ‘Womb of Creation’, with participating luminaries from around the world including: Martina Hoffmann, Robert Venosa, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, HR Giger, Mark Henson, Amanda Sage, Adam Scott Miller, Carey Thompson, Satoshi Sakamoto, Leo Plaw, David Heskin, Aloria Weaver, Raul Cassillas, Autumn Skye Morrison & many more. TOV is proud to be leading the charge into Los Angeles with this exciting cross section of a global movement that has yet to be fully represented here. Jimmy & the Temple make it their mission to raise awareness of this positive, transformative, revealing art.
In addition, Pod's own digital visionary ANDROID JONES contributes with a guest curated digital salon and large scale outdoor projections. Local favorite SHRINE will team up with powerhouse painter Amanda Sage for a mural in the back gallery.
The Gallery seeks to create a spectacular environment that will bring people together in admiration of art, and in transformation of self and community. In addition to quarterly epics, the Temple will feature a monthly music & visionary culture party, a ‘boutique concert series’, and several consciousness raising classes, workshops, and lectures from the galactic pulpit.
The opening night will be a huge celebration, with neighbors & friends The Hive Gallery & Studios opening on the same night. A single ticket gets you in both explosive shows. Together, the galleries seek to make the 700 block of Spring Street a must-visit destination for art loving Angelinos and visitors alike. For more information on the Hive, visit

Energy builds as incredible artists from across North America converge to celebrate the visionary life in downtown LA. This epic collaboration of energies is connecting to co-create the newest vehicle for visionary art culture.

Passing through the sacred symmetry of gold leafed splendor by David Heskin and Aloria Weaver of the Dreaming Co:nexus, one comes face to face with to the larger than life mural reflecting the immaculately inspired imagination brought into being by Xavi. Beyond this, Shrine and Amanda Sage bring the magic to new heights with their seamless pigmentations.

Hanging on the walls is a multiverse of visionary landscapes and lightforms, textures and telemetries, beings, entities and avatars, a colorful collection brought by amazing artists from around the world.

The Temple of Visions group show will hang until march 13.


Pictures and full download coming soon...
