Nameless, An Exploration of Form Opening Reception- August 5, 2017

Nameless, An Exploration of Form-Village Gallery- Opening Reception

August 5, 2017- Lotus and I did it. From idea to manifestation, this show blossomed. Massive, explosive rainbow beam love and gratitude sent to every single person that was able to come out to the opening reception! It was a night to remember with beautiful conversation, great music, and new and old connections. I cannot thank you all enough for the massive love and support that has oozed from the community!

This colorful and vibrant show is something that Lotus and I have wanted to share with you all for some time. The mere title of the show "nameless" is a larger understanding of our own friendship, energetic connection, feelings, and desires that have been manifested through the perspective of visual artists. The emotion and inspiration that has led us to this point in both of our lives has only manifested a dialogue between ourselves, the painting, and the viewer. A conscious connection. An elicit emotional wave of beauty and harmony that resides within us all. A reminder that we are all very much connected in this life and throughout all our lives. You inspire me to create and I hope that I inspire you as well.

A special thank you to the musicians that did the opening as well. Shadow Farm is an amazing intuitive band and my husband, Darius Twin, put on an amazing set. He has intentions of posting it to his podcast, DammStr8 sometime this month, so keep a look out: here.

I think I need to specifically send out a specific shout out to my dear collaborative friend Lotus Heartsong. Without her friendship and the magic of our connection, this show would not exist. Her presence in my life has been more than special to me and it holds a very special place in my heart to honor creation with her. Community blessings to all. I am still glowing from the reception and I am sure that Lotus is as well.

 

Nameless, An Exploration of Form will remain up for viewing from August 1-30, so if you have time and are in Fairfax, I urge you to go check it out!

Address: 3950 University Dr. Fairfax, VA 22030

Reminder:

To keep up with other things that

are going on at Olly Olly, where Lotus and I both continue to journey with creative community- follow their FB page, Lotus's FB Page, or my own FB page.  I

have monthly meditations at my studio at Olly Olly every month. The next one will be a special workshop that I will be leading myself on my Wedding Anniversary, September 6th. You can find more information about the meditations in the FB group, here.

The main intention of these meditations will be to focus on the journey within. and continue to immerse ourselves into strengthening our community connections. As we approach the jewels within ourselves, I find it’s a really cool way for us all to raise the vibes of community in our NOVA area.
