Saturday's show was really fun, and a little bizarre, but in a good way! Everything from the art that was created for art's sake to the music and spoken word performances definitely made the experience truly unique. Sylvia's space at Sycamore Gallery is kind of like going on a treasure hunt. You walk in the purple door and pass several working artist's studios down a long corridor that takes you to her gallery and outdoor courtyard where art is always introduced in a creative and spontaneous way. A couple of us painted murals on the wall and used it as a backdrop for our work. Asian effigy papers were strung from the ceiling and creative video imagery was shown on the outdoor wall behind the band. And Holle Black's amazing cranes and Chinese women (below) were absolutely stunning! There will be another short afternoon reception the second weekend in September, date and time TBA.

Sylvia Cross, owner of Sycamore Gallery and studios will be hosting an opening this Saturday themed the Cusp of Leo. All the artists exhibiting are Leos (and so is Sylvia!) She traditionally has an art party on her birthday which was the beginning of this month, but the 1st annual Citywide Art Walk is going on and she decided to move the show to coincide with the tour. A few of the artist (including myself) have created painted backdrops in the gallery to showcase their work. The show will be like a temporary installation-the experience of the works of art against the murals will be doubly fun to see! Sylvia has lined up storytellers, musicians and even Johnny Coffee's Female Weightlifters, I have no idea who they are, but can't wait to find out! Hope you can stop be and support us, there's a $10 suggested donation at the door. Ya'll come!
Here is a detail of one of my new pieces.

I'm moved in and getting settled in to my new studio space-yay!! Everything has a spot and I finally have everything in one place! It's amazing, actually, I don't have too much space to spare. But summer is winding down and I've got some projects that will be getting into gear, so it will quickly become a messy space, but in good way, of course! Here are a few pics to give you an idea, it's a quirky space, with a pole here, and a soffit there...but it all works! I can't wait to really get grooving and working on some large scale pieces, it's going to be so fun! Enjoy the tour.
