Theta Spring Hypnosis partnered up with Contra Galleries, hosted by artist Cyrstal Dyer, to create an exploratory workshop utilizing hypnosis. By using the medium to tap into the subconscious mind and explore artists’ creative side. The artists were given a hypnosis recording to listen to prior to producing art at home. Through the hypnotic journey at the workshop, they were inspired to create artwork to show at Contra Galleries.

Works displayed at the gallery called, Subconscious Canvas Art Exhibit by fine artists Kate Rogovin, Mary Mihelic, Julian Rapp, Joseph MeloyClay StaplefordMariana Soares, and Pia Marchetti. As well as surrealist Connie Rose, street artist Brandon Sines, pop artist Jeremy Wolff, multi-media artist Crystal Dyer, graffiti artist Sandro Tchikovani. The exhibit hopes to outline what happens when you let go of the logical conscious mind and become guided by our subconscious, which is purely reactive, creative, instinctual and behavior driven.
