My feature on Earth Mandalas in the Lehigh Happening online magazine!
Beautifully assembled group mandala from my earth mandala workshop I facilitated and was hosted by Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites!
Detail of the group mandala assembled in the Sister's House court yard.
Create your own earth Mandalas on this guided stroll through nature with Artist and Art Therapist Moriah M. Mylod as part of the Single Sisters Series. Meeting at 22 West Church Street in Bethlehem @ 1:00 p.m.
Unwind as you gather pieces of nature throughout this guided walk to assemble an earth mandala outside the Single Sisters' House.
What are earth mandalas? They are an ancient art-making practice of spiritual and aesthetic value that are usually circular in design.
I will be showing tonight at the Prallsvilles Mills (The Red Saw Mill) with the Hunderton Art Tour this weekend for THIS 'n THAT pop up artist group show reception May 6th from 7 p.m. - 11 p.m.
We Hope to See You there!

I am grateful to be a part-time Art Therapist for an "Art as Relaxation" program specialized for at-risk adolescent populations in middle schools in Allentown and Easton, Pennsylvania. The goals of this program are to enhance self-esteem, gain positive coping-skills, develop emotional, community building, instillation of hope and social growth through the use of art, creative processes and therapeutic support. This a a grant funded program to prepare children for "job readiness" and "aspiring professionals."
Adolescent children continue to surprise, amaze, motivate, and inspire me. Especially loved the looks they gave when I said we were going outside to make an earth mandala. "Whaaattt....earth mandala?" I truly love my work! (I was given special permission to share art through "client release" following with art therapist code of ethics)
"Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible."
Last night was the Artist Talk to Subverting Craft based on the book series The Family Creative Workshop on Feb. 3rd from 5:30 to 6:45.
The show is curated by Lindsey Jancay '12 and is comprised of work by:
Kathy Scott Bachofer '15
Gabrielle Buzgo '11
Kailey Goodnuff '16
Britni Houser '16
Moriah M. Mylod '16
Victoria Snyder '12
Martha Moore Westbrook '86
Each alum-artist was given the opportunity to study the book series, select a craft project and either follow the instructions or reinterpret them. As an alum I was given an opportunity to study the series, select earth mandalas as my craft and engage in an artist talk on this process.
This show is part of the 150th anniversary celebration of Cedar Crest College.
Brief gallery slide show of the night, our instructions were formatted into a book inspired by the DIY movement of the 60's (Family Craft Workshop book series) and I captured a moment from the audience.
A few preliminary sketches for a large scale painting I've been working on for several months! I started with graphite in my sketchbook then went onto color with oil pastels, watercolor then finished with acrylic.
I'm here for scale next to my new work,
