Bio: Bea Garth
Bea Garth has been creating art since her mid twenties, and poetry since she was 18. As a child she liked creating stories, plays and mime with her friends. In 1973 Bea received her B.A. at the University of Oregon in political science with a minor in philosophy.
Back in the seventies, Bea had a prophetic dream that convinced her that she should emphasize her creativity rather than become a professor of political science like she first intended. Since then Bea became a ceramic sculptor and now is pursuing painting again as well as her poetry. In the early nineties Bea showed her sculpture up and down the Wests Coast. Now that she has recovered her health, she has been showing her work again, though so far emphasizing painting. Just recently she won a first for her painting in the international art magazine Art/Slant ( section 9, 2016 ArtSlant Sbowcase) .
Bea has started and/or helped renew a series of alternative publications that feature art, poetry, stories, spirituality and politics. Eos: The Creative Context represents a fulfillment of many of her interests. It is something she does to help build the creative community while still having time to follow her own Muse.
About Eos: The Creative Context
Eos as the “Goddess of the Dawn” is in many ways symbolic for the dawning New Age that is rapidly coming upon us. She is often depicted in her chariot guiding her two winged horses.
I created this blog with the idea that it would be a monthly (well–sometimes!) version of the Sunday Supplement, but from the creative, progressively aware, inspirited person’s point of view. Eos is also a place where community can and often has blossomed.
With this intention in mind, I invite you to send your best jpeg photos of artwork (please identify the title and medium), poems, stories, commentary, gluten free recipes and worthy events–whether healing, creative, or philosophically relevant and timely concerning our collective social/political/spiritual environment. Please send submissions to email@example.com.
Eos: The Creative Context has gone through a series of incarnations since it originated January 1, 2008. I had high hopes for this most current version with Word Press–and it seems like it has proven itself worthy. The original Blogger format was becoming a little cumbersome with the unfortunate effect of leaving some posts buried far too soon. So far, I am choosing to emphasize certain posts for the Pages, however other equally wonderful posts can be found in the Archives and Categories. Just click on a subject and author and you will find their multiple posts (assuming they have multiples, otherwise it will just be their single post).
Please let me know if you can or cannot make comments easily, since comments are really the “payment” that the various authors and artists here would like to get. If you can’t figure it out, please send me comments (or submissions) through regular email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So welcome–and let beauty, harmony, right action, love, compassion and constructive creative intelligence reign!
Please Note: Submissions are actively invited.
Please post Queries to: email@example.com — and include a short bio about yourself plus your writing or art (100 words or less). I like poems to be included in the body of the text rather than sent as files.
