The Chambers Project is proud to present the opening of “The Secret Path” an exhibition of original art works by famed UK artists Roger Dean and his daughter Freyja Dean. The Secret Path will immerse visitors in an extraordinary world where life and landscape invoke the splendors of nature through the visionary imagination of the Deans. The exhibition opens November 19th and will close February 2nd, 2023, before touring to other venues.
“”Roger Dean, the graphic designer best known for his fantastical album art for prog rock bands Yes and Asia, will stage his first immersive “high-definition 4D audio and video experience” for a limited run in San Francisco this fall.
“Dragon’s Dream: The Roger Dean Experience,” scheduled to open at Gray Area on Nov. 12, is being produced by Chambers Obscura — a collaborative group that includes the San Francisco design team Minds Over Matter, psychedelic art collector Brian Chambers and Gagan Jared Levy, founder of the local creative marketing agency Guru.
“Through Roger’s guidance and imagination, our animators brought his paintings to life,” Marc Melzer of Minds Over Matter said in a statement. “Step through the portal into his mythical landscapes. You will be surrounded by alien flora, soaring dragons, strange flying machines, grasshopper/elephant hybrids and many other extraordinary sights and sounds.” “”
Project Updates, exhibition news, announcement of live discussions 14th and 21st of December on Facebook 7pm GMT with some live painting to be scheduled.

In addition to my annual exhibition at Trading Boundaries I have a couple of paintings and some prints at Brian Chambers amazing new gallery where he is opening with a joint show with some incredible artists (see his poster) and some incredible and rare works of art. Such as Rick Griffin’s, Rick was one of the most original and influential of the ‘Psychedelic’ artists.
When Storm and I were working on the cover of the first Album Cover Album book it was a unanimous decision to put his ‘Aoxomoxoa’ cover front and central, this before we went on to publish a book of Ricks work in 1980. I have never seen an original drawing of Ricks in the flesh so I’m very much looking forward to seeing what wonders Brian can conjure up.
When I know more about what paintings and sculptures the other artist will be showing I will write again with pictures. Also I’m hoping to show images of the new building. The two paintings of mine that will be exhibited are The Quest the cover of the latest Yes album and Inland Sea II with a possible third in Jade Sea.
If I can navigate all the new travel issues it is my plan to be there for the opening.
This was an adventure, my first instinct was to try some thing much more abstract but this was the first idea to get real traction. I loved working with the Mezzotints. The painting was about time travel with a robotic hummingbird in the foreground against an ancient Egyptian backdrop ….or is it.
Zoltron asked me to do this and worked with me and the printers and Mike Inns worked with me in the UK. playing with the early ideas.
