May Happenings . . .



Greetings!

Suddenly it's May 18th and I have no idea where the month has gone . . .  yikes!  Why don't we do a recap of recent activities and get you all up to date on upcoming events.  Let's get started :)


Last week I participated in Inter(ART) with a super talented group of artists from a wide variety of fields.  Here's a look at the who's who and the what's what:

Mind-blowing assemblage by collage artist Dan Hartman
DJ I Roach pumped the beats
Artist Jake Herrick working his magic on a new creation
A massive coloring wall (!!)
Prince <3
J Roots Art is so inspiring.  Definitely a new fan.
Cristina Ziemer (the busy bee on the right) created some gorgeous looks on the Inter(ART) models.  Check out that gold leaf!
Guest artist Jimmy Longoria's paintings are dynamic. 

Textile designer & creative, Luci Kandler, screen printed beautiful designs on these Target blush + ivory dresses.  Also loving her floaty femme astronaut fabric <3
Yarn Art!
Fiber artist, Marjorie Fedyszyn, demonstrated a wet felting technique.  Very unique creations!


A big thanks to Erica Rubio and her team at Target Corp. for putting this event together!  For more photos from the event, check out the Gallery here.


>> Next order of business: 2 NEW Exhibition Announcements!  As if June wasn't busy enough, but I couldn't resist saying yes to both of these . . .

That's it for now!  Stay tuned for a recap of this week's opening reception of the "Community" art showcase at Sen Yai Sen Lek.  Better yet, swing by during Art-A-Whirl this weekend to check it out & nosh on some tasty Thai :)

Today's musical selection is Lissie's acoustic version of "Stay" . . . still very obsessed with her new album My Wild West . . .
