Talk Show-Olly Olly- Opening Reception
May 20, 2017- Talk show immersed us into a 1970’s glam jam! There was gold glitter, shag carpets, and of course, beautiful art from local artists in the Fairfax Area. You can find a list of the artists on the Olly Olly Website!
Much of the artwork that was on display reminded me of the continued importance of love. The talent that oozes from the community around the Northern Virginia area is a beautiful example of support and encouragement. My husband had been out of town, so I had thought that i might not be able to make it to the show, but Jessica Kallista, the curator of the show, urged me to come along and bring my daughter.
My daughter’s energy added to the energy of the show because it showed that she was included as well as myself in my role as an active Mom. The art and intellectual world is not casting out suburban mothers from the world they might of been immersed in before. I chatted with some new friends and some old friends. Cayce’s best friend, Davi even came to play.
Unfortunately, Cayce’s bedtime approached quickly and I did not get to stay around for the Talk Show interviews. But a lot of them are posted on the Olly Olly FB page and can be reviewed there.
It truly feeds my soul to come out of my art cave and jump into a world where community, art, and raising the vibes of our world is the focus. I felt as if this exhibit challenges the separation of the art world to the other worlds that strangely enough, I feel the art world is a bridge between. The bridge begins with exhibitions like these and I am the lucky one to have a studio here at Olly Olly.
I love that Northern Virginia is filled with such talented gems and how much Art is supported here.
Overall, it was a really nice exhibition that runs from May 20- July 8 and can still be viewed by appointment.
To keep up with other things that are going on at Olly Olly, follow their FB page. I myself am starting monthly meditations at my studio at Olly Olly on June 9th and look forward to those that attend.
The main intention of these meditations will be to focus on the journey within. We will approach the jewels of creativity that we have within ourselves. Plus, it’s a really cool way for us all to raise the vibes of community in our NOVA area.
