Artsy Get Down
September 8, 2010
A few cool things going on that I wanted to share with you all:
- The first thing is open to ALL readers and that is a G.i.V.e.A.w.A.y.! It is for a pair of crochet earrings by Fatemeh’s Jewelry and Accessories. All you have to do is send an email to email@example.com telling me what hairstyle you would wear to rock these earrings. Thanks to all of you who have already entered! I’ll be picking a winner THIS FRIDAY so be sure to get your entry in! Oh and Fatemeh also makes really cute hair candy so be sure to check out the Etsy store!
- This week is Independent Artist’s Week in San Francisco with a lot of fun activities and events going on. I attended a live art celebration in the Fillmore this past Monday and had a phenomenal time checking out the performers and mingling with other Bay Area Naturals such as photographer Sasha Kelley! Concerts, networking events, parties and an art walk are all part of IAW. Check out the full scoop here!
- I am on the Board of Directors of an amazing non-profit arts organization called Precita Eyes Mural Arts Association. On Saturday September 25th we will be hosting our Annual Gala at the SOMArts Gallery in San Francisco. This years theme is ¡VIVA MURALISMO! and there will be music by the Gaucho Gypsy Jazz Sextet, participatory live mural painting, and auctions for pieces of authentic mural details. It’s a really fun party for a really great cause: keeping the mural arts alive. Visit Precita Eyes’ website for more details on tickets and to learn about the organization!
- For those ladies in Chicago, BGLH will be hosting its next natural hair meet up on October 9th so mark those calendars! Natural Selection’s next Bay Area meet up is coming next month as well. Details to come soon!
