Nameless- Closing Reception

Oceanids Archival Print 2017

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

August 26, 2017- Wow. Vibes. Thank you so much to everyone that was involved in our month exhibition, Nameless, An exploration of Form. Lotus and I both feel deep gratitude for all the love and support we have received while manifesting this show.  A special thank you to everyone that purchased an art print, came to the workshops, or bought a painting- your support and light is the reason both Lotus and I can continue onward in our journey with art.

The closing reception closed the month with colorful and interactive painting by almost everyone that came- some real talent came into hang out with us and paint. Lotus's idea to make this an intimate space for creation manifested and it was really amazing to rest and chat with friends I had missed out on while focusing on art-school-motherhood goals.

A special thank you my husband, who was able to put up a recorded podcast of the music that happened at the opening reception while also working on his project, Hashtiv this month. You can check out the podcast, here.

Art Print- Moon Magic- Print For Sale

As the show comes down, Art Prints & Paintings will be available in my shop.

I have truly learned so much about doing my own art exhibition.  I would say that creating and forming its' own thesis, space, and events is an art on its own that really takes careful time and care to create. It is important to make sure that the truths of each event, the venue, and the words that are shared for the event align with what is happening in the show.

My biggest learning curve was talking about my art- the depth and connection of why I painted and created the work that I did.

I noticed that overall, something that really struck me is that not many people know a lot about Esoteric topics- so I need to really work on communicating the theories and forms of my truths in a more concrete way. I want to thank each and every person that discussed my artwork with me and I hope that you come back and check in- as I'll be blogging more about the inspiration behind my artwork in the future--

I look forward to seeing you all during studio visits- full moon meetings- and other art events happening in the future at my studio in Olly Olly, as well.

Until then-- Wildly, Mel

Nameless, an Exploration of Form- Art Exhibition- August 1-30- Event Schedule

Nameless An Exploration of Form-Mel BIkowski

Nameless, An Exploration of Form Art Exhibition

August 1-30: It's here! The show Lotus & I have been working on and anticipating for months! I am elated to share all of our artworks both individual pieces and collaborative works with the public. It is truly a beautiful show and I am not just saying that because I am biased (hehehe)

The setup for the show has also been exhilarating. Not many people see the hard work that is put behind an event. The stretching of the canvas, the speckling and cleaning of the white walls, the hanging process, and most of all the last minute design decisions. We have spent the last three days working over 12 hour days making sure that our artworks get the walls they deserve and I have to tell you, there is nothing more magical than hanging artwork on a fresh painted white wall!

Lotus and I have had a good time stretching our canvases, laughing, eating, and drinking lots of coffee. We are really looking forward to the Art Opening that is happening on August 5th and we cannot wait to see all of your beautiful faces for our celebrARTion !

Here is a list of the events that will be happening all month.
