FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Society for Art of Imagination came into being in 1993 to promote Visionary and Fantastic art worldwide. The Society’s roots however begin much earlier. It was formerly known as the ‘Inscape Group’ begun in 1961. Brigid Marlin and Diana Hesketh, two of the founders of this original group are still very active members today.
The Society for Art of Imagination is the oldest group of living artists in the field of Imaginative Art in the world. It is also an American registered Charity.

The show runs from 14th to 28th of April 2012. The Museum, founded in 2011 by the Curator Gerhard Habarta, is the first in the world to be dedicated solely to Fantastic and Visionary Art.
In this exhibition, the 58 exhibiting artists will be representing 22 countries. They will be showing painting, assemblage, and shoe sculptures. At least seventeen of these participating artists will be attending the exhibition opening at 11.00 am on the 14th of April.

New works by Vincent Castiglia, Sacrifices for the Sanguinary Age. 6 new paintings from 2010 which comromised Vincent’s solo exhibition at the world renowned Meta Gallery in September 2010.
On October 28-30 2010 in Detroit, there will come a congregation of the most controversial fine art artists from across the world to display their darkest of creations at DAMNED III – An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness. From the infamous, which recently included rock legend Marilyn Manson and Oscar winner HR Giger, to the freshest of local and international talent, this ominous assembly will exhibit a diversity of artistries from the deeply depraved to the intensely introspective guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, captivate or repulse. This was not Halloween-themed art but a submergence within the shadowed realms of consciousness through an unique ambiance of ethereal soundscapes, art-inspired gallery vignettes and cirque/butoh-inspired stage performances.
Then, on Devil’s Night (October 30), DAMNED will transform into a sensuous celebration beginning with an intimate six-course presentation style dinner followed by a formal masquerade ball within the milieu of exotic rhythms, floor performances and art.
