SATURDAY, NOV. 9
Lengthy Seaside-based clothes model Polymer_ and professional skateboarder-turned-entrepreneur Mikey Taylor and his firm Commune Capital are throwing a gaggle artwork present and fundraiser for Wilson Excessive Faculty’s arts program (Mr. Szeto, are you continue to there?!)
Anticipate a raffle, refreshments, sounds by vinyl junkie Telegram Sam of The Slop Stomp and works by 5 artists, together with Rose Park native Cody Lusby, whose portraiture was not too long ago launched as a part of Metro Artwork’s “More People Than You Know” digital set up sequence alongside the refurbished A Line.
Don’t know if it will get a lot cooler than this: skaters, entrepreneurs, artists, multi function place, supporting youth and creativity and the way it’s not simply the bodily making of the artwork that issues, however studying to use a inventive mindset to life typically.
Entrepreneurship is inventive, skating is inventive, portray and designing is inventive and all of the extra attainable when a public college’s arts program is bolstered with that perception. We all know this very effectively, as one in every of us right here on the Hello-lo is a product of that very artwork program (cough, Asia).
A bit extra on the artists displaying on Saturday. Nicole Monk’s minimal traces, shapes and figures remind us a number of our very personal illustrator Jonny Bummers’ work, however maybe a bit extra conceptual, perhaps even non secular. Summary artist, model collaborator and youngsters’s e-book creator Steve Fawley’s work is brilliant and daring. Port Metropolis Tattoo artist Daniel Albrigo’s work are lifelike, with refined, fine-tuned shading to be appreciated. Ryan Russell Ward’s attractive, scribbly flower drawings are a sight to behold, whereas his extra illustrative character work can also be value a gaze.
A lot of the merchandise on the market can be limited-edition and impressed by Wilson Excessive colours (so we’re assuming there can be a number of maroon, yellow and khaki), some items are even uniform compliant so, when you’re a pupil, have at it!
The artwork, after all, may even be on the market with a “important proportion” of gross sales to be donated to Wilson’s artwork program.
One other great point: If in case you have just a few free hours to spend earlier than the Polymer group present, could we recommend stopping by bookstore Web page Towards the Machine. From four p.m. to six p.m.? You could be viewers to an introduction and historical past of the Peace Corps from Natalie Smerkanich, an energetic Peace Corps recruiter within the South Bay/Lengthy Seaside area. Hear Smerkanich’s retelling of her days in Palau from 2012-2014 in addition to tales from different former volunteers of the do-good group John F. Kennedy signed into existence almost 60 years in the past.
Giving us a second’s pause: Earlier than you go and search for what Palau is on Google, we received you. It’s this tiny island planted in the course of the Pacific Ocean that’s type of but in addition, not type of, neighbors with the Philippines and Indonesia. Cool truth: Palauan society follows a strict matrilineal system, which suggests the tracing of kinship (i.e. household traces, inheritance and passing of conventional titles), is thru the feminine line.
