This Friday, April 4th, four local artists are coming together for a party about Art, Nutrition and Life and inviting you to be a part of the event. The event is called “The Real” is part of the Off Center Stage Discovery Series showcasing the work of Sheila Cameron, Kathy Frey, Victoria LaFont and Heather Donahue. Tagged as ‘the reality and hilarity of living a healthy, creative life in modern times.’ “I think we are all feeling the paradox of living well in this whacko age. How do we do that? How can we life healthfully, fully and still be balanced human beings? How can we create art, deep, loving relationships, take care of ourselves, etc. and have such differing views and need? This event will set us up for that conversation while having fun….that’s the important part that any philosophically based event is missing. We’re going to keep the heady part in check, and have fun and listen, ” said Victoria. “I wanted to explore a new approach to how the traditional art show worked, so invited friends that inspire me to join the party,” said Sheila. “Moving here was an experiment to see if I could have the lifestyle I wanted while being a successful artist,” said jewelry maker Kathy Frey. For this art show she has created a series of sculptures and said the motivation for The Real was catalyst to branch out in her creative outlets while being supported by her community. A $6 suggested donation or a real food item to share will get you a raffle ticket at the door for original artwork, healthy and beauty products. There is also an ebay art auction with starting bids of only .49 with new work going up until the end of the show April 15. The event in intended to be a conversation with artists and the people who attend the show, so stop by the Off Center Stage on Friday evening between 5-9pm and join the fun.
