About the Artists:
John Flinn was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. John was just 10 years old when he first saw the Northern Lights - waves of white light cascading across the sky. This was the beginning of his lifelong interest in astronomy, the Northern Lights and the night sky. John has been photographing the Northern Lights for more than 19 years. His artistic goal is “to make visible for others the nearly invisible, fleeting movements of transcendent beauty that occur in nature.”
John’s first exposure to photography also occurred when he was 10 years old, flying over to Europe for the first time. From then on, John always had a camera with him on trips to the wilderness and during travels to Peru, Chile, the Himalayas and Mexico.
A business trip to Alaska in 1990 changed his direction in photography, when for the first time he photographed the Northern Lights. After moving to Eugene Oregon, John continued night sky photography. In early 2000 he noticed the unmistakable glow of the aurora and later discovered that the Northern Lights can light up the Oregon night sky as many as 10 times a year. Since then, John has been photographing the Northern Lights and other nocturnal scenes.
John Flinn’s photos have been published in magazines such as Astronomy and Sky and Telescope. He has lectured and presented slide shows extensively to astronomy clubs, service clubs and schools including the University of Oregon and Oregon State University. His photos have been featured in many newspapers. The University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History featured an exhibit of his large aurora photographs in the fall of 2006.

"He plays like a god!" ~ Romula Nijinski, wife of the great Russian Dancer.
Few harpists come close to Joel. Andrews' superb technical mastery of the harp on which he has discovered 30 new sounds. His concerts transcend ordinary musical performances, uplifting the body into documented states of greater balance and harmony. Researchers have found configurations similar to DNA patterns in Andrews' music and in laboratory tests it was found to change the structure of water.
Since ancient times the healing powers of the harp have been recognized. In 1971 Joel Andrews began translating spontaneously the music he was hearing in higher dimensions, taking this capability to new heights. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, hearing his music lifts one into higher planes of spiritual ecstasy. One is left feeling a deep stillness at the core of being, new-found freedom, and an expectancy of fulfillment. Under his gifted and inspired hands the harp becomes a messenger of peace, harmony, upliftment, and joy.
