Life Force Arts Center
Life Force Arts Center looks nondescript outside, but inside, it’s a tiny, white-walled room elevated only by the sublime, as each quarterly art exhibit tries to personify larger spiritual concepts. LFAC boasts an eclectic mix of mediums—wood carving by John Henderson and jewelry by Steven Blaine Adams are some standouts—and skill level. Yet the total effect is of a warm, meditative space, perfect for the many events the center hosts like concerts, astrology and tarot workshops, and shamanism courses taught by the acclaimed Joan Forest Mage. It’s a jewel of the spiritual and art community that will shine brighter with a larger audience.
