Can’t say enough great things about Akki. I don’t think I know anyone as positive, talented and hard-working; Whatever she imagines, she makes into reality, and it is always AWESOME. She draws, paints, sews, pastes, stands for your rights (to party and the important ones too ;P ) etc.
She’ll be representing #TheProjecto at the EAST Group Exhibition, and present at our 2 studios both days (Nov 18th & 19th), meeting you, sharing her impressive variety of art products and making you smile 😀
Oh and just for you to get an idea of the coolness of this artist, let me tell you that she has collaborated with all three separately, The Projecto, collective blue & The Audacity! No connection in between, just people looking for outstanding creatives, and getting to Akki’s territory, nice!
I’m super thrilled to invite you to the event “Jumpstart your Success” a party coordinated by an amazing group that I belong to called “Power Heels”that focuses on enabling women to reach their maximum potential professionally and personally in a safe space.
We’re hosting this, our first event as a Holiday Party where we intend to prepare women for the new year by setting them up for success. In addition to networking with industry leaders.
The event will be at IBM Design Studio from 7-9PM and we’ll have #ChidoMachine selecting music so you know dancing will be happening ;P
We’ll also have 3 different stations:
(1) Build Your Profile: resume writing and building a stunning Linkedin profile.
(2) Look the Part: hairstyling and professional head shots.
(3) Talk the Talk: mock interviews and feedback led by business leaders from some of Austin’s hottest companies.
The event will benefit Dress For Success, an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence. * Please feel free to bring business clothing that you’d like to donate to the Organization. – Tip: Items that you’d use for a job interview.
Please RSVP here to join us in this lovely mission, we’ll have all that I mentioned earlier plus drinks, bites, and a raffle with really cool items donated by our sponsors. ❤
Carlos Olvera or “Vegan Cannibal” as the internet world knows him, is an important, multidisciplinary and fun artist! I’ve known him for over a decade and each time I see him, I learn a lot and have a blast all together.
I met him while I was working at an Art Gallery, and he would often do custom paintings for our clients; it always amazed me how he could dominate every single style, no matter what the demands were, he would pull it off.
Now he only does his thing with a very specific style: Fun-Zombie-Goreish-Punkedelic I would call it 😛 & he continues to amaze me with every piece.
He has gone from drawings to paintings, to objects, music, fanzines and tattoos (among others I’m sure); It doesn’t matter if you give him a skateboard, a toilet, paper or canvas, he’ll do something great and creative. He and his art have traveled the world and now we’ll have them here in Austin!
Come join us for some good times, some drinks and a lot of Vegan Cannibal this November the 19th at Studio #111 ❤
Beverly Kemp is a unique Painter and Internet Sensation, people recognize her controversial & raw Art anywhere; Last year Bev and Gerardo Arellano were “Must See” EAST studio #6 by Do512‘s featuring an Ann Richards painting that brought a smile to everyone.
This year She’ll work again with #TheProjecto bringing new and not so new pieces to us!
Let me share you an excerpt of her bio that I love, and describes some of what you’ll see:
Reviewers and critics have described my work as ‘eye-popping’ and ‘Disney-fied.’ Yet, I find that my oils on canvas are more than screaming upside-down, inside-out point-of-view statements or cross-eyed observations of societal norms and women’s issues that shouldn’t be. As I age and wage an on-going battle with Parkinson’s disease, filling in another red dress comes easier and easier. Now, I know my paint is saying something. ❤
Hope You’re already convinced and drop by Studio #111!!!
A bunch of things have happened/ lately, so here is a recap:
Think well before buying ACL Vip tickets! Its awesome when you’re in the VIP lounge but you don’t get any benefits where the music is at
#WheresWarhol is up and running! The Blanton Museum is sending “Warhols”through the streets of Austin to promote and give passes for the new exhibit “Warhol by the Book”be on the lookout every Wednesday of October and don’t forget to use #WheresWarhol!!! * The exhibition opens this Sunday Oct 16th.
Go to all Austin Chronicle events, specially if it includes “Master Pancake” Comedy troupe, they’re hilarious!!! I went to their “Willow” screening and I cried a lot (laughing of course). It was interactive, funny, and we got to curse a lot, so great stress relief! 😉
