Above Tremendum Fascinans advertisement flyer, featuring Formorii Warrior by Otto Rapp

From December 8, 2016 through January 8, 2017, at True Love Art Gallery in Seattle USA,  the Tremendum Fascinans Exhibition of Fantastic Art is showcasing excellent works of high imagination, inspired by mystery.  Local, national and international artists penetrate the veil of seeming with fantastic representations of The Unknowable. The December 8 vernissage was successful, despite frigid temperatures and heavy snow.  Numerous artists attended, including Dean Fleming, who flew in from Los Angeles. 
 
Here is the Tremendum Fascinans complete information, artist list, and mission statement….

"The mystery of our existence is oft dismissed, with humour, and an air of feigned omniscience. Yet *All That Is and Could Ever Be* remains a timeless enigma in this measured moment - the very ferment of love and life, just outside the grasp of intellectual analysis.
Have we the humility to embrace the vastness of The Unknowable? (TREMENDUM)
The imagination to be inspired by its uncertainty? (FASCINANS)
When a fearless gaze into this well of darkness meets its rippling reflection, infinite possibilities shimmer, a universe of stars, potential metamorphoses invite us to become..."
