For New Age artist Dresden Liam Moss, the hidden meanings in his paintings take viewers beyond superficial impressions. View a print of Moss' "Porcelain Mask" at A Gypsy's Whimsy in Astoria and take the challenge of deciphering the symbols in the artwork.

Moss will personally present a signed limited edition card of the painting to the person who most accurately unravels its meaning during his appearance at the shop from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. Contestants must e-mail their entries to Moss at mystdrm@hotmail.com by Friday, Dec. 8.

The self-taught Moss creates his vibrant works in watercolor and colored pencil. For 15 years, his unique approach capturing the esoteric fabric of life has graced New Age publications, fantasy magazines, CD covers and cards. His prints are exclusively available at A Gypsy's Whimsy, 1139 Commercial St.
