GREEN SUNDAY Coming December 1st

What’s this about “Green Sunday”? It’s an alternative to Black Friday, a chance to give and receive homemade and recycled gifts in time for the holidays.  Avoid the crush of the mall; enjoy the gifts we make. If you’ve given everyone a hand-knit scarf every year for the last ten years – and those never wear out —  all your friends have ten hand-knit scarves.  Bring your handiwork and trade your scarves for socks, or bags or cakes … and give everyone something different this year.

It’s also the closing party for the show “Water: Creation or Destruction?” Artwalk Inc. and Creative Resource, promoting Water Awareness through art.  Some of the artists whose work is exhibited will be there, and we’ll have an information table.

Someone approached me the other day and asked, “But what can I bring?  I work in my home office…”  I thought of the drummer boy:  Can you play for us?  You’ve got something to offer , I’m sure, and this being Thanksgiving weekend we’ll be thankful.

Sunday December 1st, 1-5, at Spirit Studio 3711 Evans Street, (Los Angeles, 90027) from 1-5PM

Lee will be showing us how to make these great origami boxes, and I’m thinking about trading for stuff, time-dollars, or just giving away:

  • ·         Latkes – It’s the fifth night of Chanukah and you might never have tasted my latkes.  I make a mean latke.
  • ·         Puppets – These antique puppets need to be restrung, and I might never get around to it.  They’ve been in a trunk for ten years.  If you can re-string one, you can have it…  Also we can make puppets from scratch.
  • ·         Signed copies of novels – I’ve got several copies on each of my published novels and I need the closet space for shoes.
…. Seedlings in cute cups…? Maybe.  Great food?  I hope so.

Spirit Studio is right on the edge between Silver Lake and Los Feliz Time Banks (3711 Evans Street, LA 90027, at the corner of Evans and Hyperion) where the Silver Lake Time Bank held it’s kick-off party so some of you already know the place.  We’ll have tables set up for activities, displays where people can teach skills in making a great holiday with recycled materials, and/or artful gifts, including food items.

If you want to have a table, and you are already a member of a time bank, contact us at http://arroyoseco.timebanks.org/   Or contact me directly:  rmorris.artwalk@gmail.com

It would be great to party with you this coming Green Sunday,

Water: Creation or Destruction?

 

Artwalk Inc. and Creative Resource Promote Water Awareness Through Art Display

Artwalk Inc. and Creative Resource host “Water, Creation or Destruction?” highlighting the power of and our dependence on water.

The show opens on Sunday, November 10, 2013 at Spirit Studio, 3711 Evans Street, (Los Angeles, 90027) from 1-5PM and remain open to the public until Sunday, December 1st.   During the exhibit’s three week run the gallery hours will be Thursday through Sunday, 3-6PM, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day.

 

In returning to the theme of creativity vs. destructiveness we examine the most fundamental of human needs, water,  and how an individual learns to co-exist with this essential element that can nourish or obliterate, an element necessary for survival, and yet capable of destruction.

This display will feature local artists’ interpretation of one’s relationship with water.

Please refer to the website for more information or contact Dr. Pionati at the email below.  The show’s curator, Dr. Glorianna Pionati, is an independent researcher focusing on the development of creative resources within the urban community.

Artwalk, Inc. supports and celebrates the implicit spirituality of artists’ practices, providing space as well as education and community mediation.  Creative Resource is an urban forum promoting equitable resourcing and the development of human capital in order to enrich city life.
