Owen York is an artist with a special mission: “My dream is to bring art back from the dead, by bringing the artist back to life.”
The Church of Scientology has a unique mission in Nashville – help aspiring artists learn the basics of life and living so they can be successful in their art. “Artists uplift society,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the church. “Our founder, L. Ron Hubbard, knew that artists influence others and that this could be positive or negative. If artists have are doing well spiritually, they can uplift people and the society will flourish.”
This is why Owen York, an accomplished and successful fine artist, will be giving a seminar titled “What You Need to Know About the Mind as an Artist” at the Church of Scientology in Nashville on February 15, 2015.
York’s artistic style speaks for itself. His originals, commissions and portraitures have sold nationwide and internationally. He specializes in acrylics & watercolors and his influences include Impressionism, Rock & Roll and commercial Illustration. He has a degree in Illustration from the American Academy of Art in Chicago.
At the seminar, York plans to discuss how to reach full potential as an artist, why artists are different from other people, and why it is imperative for artists to know how the mind works.
According to his website, owenyork.com, he has been involved in the arts “literally since Day 1.” As a child, he was recognized for his visual arts abilities, but was also a skilled writer & musician, playing the piano & saxophone and winning contests for young authors. At a young age, he was invited into a special program for the gifted, limited to a handful of those who excelled in the arts. He has also worked as an actor for TV, commercial, film & radio for stations including The History Channel, HSN and The Weather Channel. Despite these adventures in the various arts, York is a fine artist at heart.
The seminar will be Sunday, Feb 15, at 2pm. There is no cost to attend the lecture. To find out more about the Church of Scientology’s upcoming seminars, call 615-687-4600. For more information about Owen York or his artwork, visit owenyork.com.
