Hello Creative Friends!
This week will be the end of our weekly meetings, but not to fear, I think our monthly sessions will be that much better for the time in between. And one day soon, I hope we will be physically back in the studio, eating and drinking and making art together in person, but until then...
I have saved my favorite theme for the last session. Afrofuturism!!!! It combines the past, the future, revolution, evolution, liberation, and speculative fiction all in one beautiful and insightful art movement that I can't wait to share with you.
Shattered Moon Alliance, an artist collective featured in CVA's Collectivisms exhibition last summer, created a contemplative space with elements of past, present, and future time travel. The collaborative work of Shattered Moon Alliance conjures community, regardless of the distance between collaborators. Their installation consisted of organic material, poetry, simple sculptures, twinkling lights, and shiny metallic material as a "toolkit" for helping one another survive.
Join us this week, bring an open mind and fresh eyes and let's see what we can uncover.
Meet me this Wednesday, July 8 at 5:00 pm on Zoom.
