If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that art is powerful.
Art takes an untrue story and drags it into the light.
Art stops a crisis of imagination and opens us to new possibilities.
Art connects us to wisdom.
That’s why I’m kicking off a series of gatherings called Art + Soul — intimate settings, great talent, and the chance for you to soak you soul in the good stuff.
Join me for my first party!
Saturday, May 10th
The Georgetown Stables
980 S Nebraska St.– Seattle
*donation at the door * free parking * all ages*
Kenyan born and Seattle based Naomi Wachira brings her full bodied vocals and fully-lived lyrics to the Stable stage. Catch her now — Naomi is about to “tip” into bigger venues with a sold out album release party and an exciting opening for Pickwick this spring! Naomi’s joy is infectious, and her confidence overflows to others. Listen here, and come join us!Â
Seattle photographer Natasha Komoda may be moving back to the Midwest, but she’s left us a series of moving, empowering portraits from her Femmeography sessions. Come learn about her unique photographic technique for helping women see themselves with compassion. See my photos with Natasha on my Facebook page. (I was so brave.)Â
Want to get your body moving? Come do it the playful way with hoop dancer Nicole Spiegel. Nicole will be demonstrating hooping, giving trial lessons and tips, and selling her colorful wares. (Once you try it, you’ll love it! I have two hoops already!)Â
Is there another, more compassionate way for you to see yourself? Dr. Sibel Golden says “yes,” and art can show you how. Come see her fascinating slide presentation on women’s bodies in art throughout the ages, and get a bigger picture of what beauty can be.Â
Art + Soul is pleased to be a part of The Georgetown Art Attack! Make us the first stop on your art-filled night and discover Seattle’s most fascinating re-emerging neighborhood!
All pay-what-you-will proceeds from go to benefit the Artist’s Life Guild — providing low-cost counseling to creative without health insurance.
Music, photography, and solid dose of feel good? What are you waiting for? Go put it on your calendar!(I’ll see you soon!)
