Holiday Arts & Crafts Swap

Flyer

Dear fellow Bay Area Artisans, Crafters, Makers, and more.

Are you tired of supporting big business and spending oodles of cash to get prezzies for your friends and family?  Well bring your hand made items to our 2nd Annual Holiday Swap and trade your crafts with other artists for great gifts. Last year we had ceramics, paintings, prints, cards, jewelry, textiles, plants, as well as health and beauty items. All handmade by locals just like you. That’s right a 100% artist to artist crafts fair where no money will be exchanged!

This is how it works; I have 2 handmade cards I value at $5 each and you have a necklace you value at $10, if we  agree I trade you my cards for your necklace and everyone gets a great deal!

Want to join?  Please send an email to mimsyart@gmail.com telling us about your crafts with pics or links..Sunday December 7th from 2 to 5 pm in Berkeley Rain or Shine. Address details will be sent after you sign up.

We can only host 20 participants so register soon, looking forward to hearing from you!

Green Tara Mermaid

On of my long-term collectors, Eve Chosak recently commissioned me to create a unique Goddess to bring positive changes into her life.  She was already in possession of a four-foot square canvas of Betty Page that she wanted to transform into a Green Tara.  After meditating on the idea for a month I set up a painting at her home and got to work.  Eve was integrally involved in the process with color requests, composition offers, and inspiring me to create the Goddess she needed.  We even used Eve’s hands as models for the Goddesses, and she had a chance to assist a little in the painting process.  Having Eve’s energy in the piece was an important part of the process.

If you are interested in a sacred artwork created just for you, big or small, please contact me mimsyart@gmail.com

 

Happy Birthday to ME!

To celebrate the last 43 years of my incarnation and to prepare for the next 43 I decided to have a party with my favorite people and things; great artwork, yummy food, wonderful people and live music.  This show features several of my solo pieces as well as collaborations with Nicolas Caesar and Jombi Superstar.  It was a BLAST!

Art to the People!

The Day of the Dead Show was a huge success featuring fabulous art and beautiful live music, with lots of our artworks finding new homes.   We have been invited to do a monthly Second Saturday art nite at The Clubhouse.  Nicolas Caesar explains our mission: “It was one of the best art experiments we’ve done, taking art back to the people, creating a unintimidating environment, showcasing affordable art, reminding people that they can still buy are from real people from their community. Art is accessible again!”
