I’m excited to share a couple of art events coming up that I’ve been asked to be a part of. Both events will be taking place in September, just two days apart, and in the Southern California area – Orange County and Los Angeles. They will both be collaborations of visionary artists that channel creativity in a variety of mediums.
The first event is Laguna Woods Village Art Affair taking place on Thursday, September 5th, 2013 from 5 – 9pm.
This event is being hosted by Laguna Woods Village and will be their first annual Art Affair. It is a rare opportunity to share creations and gain exposure in their private, gated community of over 18,000 resident seniors. So, while it is not a public event, it is quite an extravagant event that will be visited by more people than most events of this type may draw in.
It will be an evening of musical performances, food and beverages, and experiencing the masterpieces of artistic expression. I am really looking forward to this event to be able to share the energy of my creations with the residents there, as I feel it will be inspiring and have a healing effect through the connections made while viewing the work. I’m honored to have been asked to be a part of this and look forward to sharing my art with everyone at Laguna Woods Village.
They just shared with me that they are still looking to secure a few more artists for this event. So if you are interested, and are a local artist to the Southern California area, here is the contact info they provided me, where you can share your interest and submit your art for acceptance:
Laguna Woods Village Recreation Division Office at 949.597.4273 or email email@example.com
The other event that will be taking place just two days after this on Saturday, September 7th, 2013 from 6:00 – 10pm, is “A Night Of Creative Compassion” at The Animal Advocacy Museum (Farm Sanctuary Fundraiser).
This one is open to the public and I do hope you will come out, join, and support these amazing creative visionaries, while helping to raise money to help support Farm Sanctuary’s efforts to end farm animal abuse through investigative, legislative and legal actions; public awareness and humane education projects and direct rescue and shelter of farm animals.
I have worked twice before with Farm Sanctuary to support them with large Fund Raising events by donating my work and services, so when Steven Todd Smith invited me to be a part of this event, I immediately said yes. I was not only grateful and honored, but happy to help raise money for Farm Sanctuary again. I truly love the vision he and his wife, Lindsay Wolf, have in bringing together a collaborative and cocreative event that celebrates artists of all genres in combined focus of compassionate and collective support. Something that speaks to my heart and is a focal point in my own life.
I will be exhibiting select pieces of my work at this event, of which will also be available for sale, and am donating pieces to the raffle that will be held. So, this is a chance not only to see my work and meet up in person, but a chance to own a piece of art created from the heart. More TBA!
Here are the details of this event:
