Cusp of Leo mural
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.
