Weekly Update 12/27/16

Apologies for not updating over the holidays. Between travel and re-adjusting to the flow of this busy season I haven’t had much time to sit at my computer, but better late than never, eh?

As far as shop updates go, there’s not much to say. Now that I’m back in Manistee I am working on putting together some gratitude gift packs for everyone who donated tickets for my RAW Artists showcase, and building up my shop inventory. We are still looking to open sometime in Feb/March 2017 if all goes well.

In the meantime, I am working on live painting applications for the 2017 festival season, poking away at some WIPs starting this past summer/fall, starting some new winter paintings and conceptualizing more ideas for the coming summer.

Wishing you all a happy New Year! May 2017 be a year of growth and change ❤

 

Venus Rising- TOMORROW!!!

Hey friends, family and fans!

THE 4TH ANNUAL VENUS RISING: ALL WOMEN’S ART EXPO IS TOMORROW EVENING!!!

For those who don’t know- Venus Rising is an all women’s art expo that not only is dedicated to celebrating female artists of all mediums, but is also a fundraiser for Alternatives for Girls- a NPO dedicated to helping homeless and high-risk teen and young adult girls heal from and avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation. 25% of all event proceeds will go to this NPO including: entry fee, art sales and donations.

My painting “Finding Peace Amidst the Chaos” will be hanging in the gallery and for sale at the event, so if you’re interested in having an original EmJae LIGHTningbug piece in your home I suggest coming tomorrow! Also, I will be live painting from 7-9PM, but the creativity will be going until 11PM, so come on by and show your support to me and my fellow femme artists!!! I hope to see you there!

The event is located at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, MI. Doors will open at 7PM.

Other updates: I will be painting at the Desert Hearts Spring Music Festival 2016 at Los Coyotes Indian Reservation, CA from April 1-4! Tier 4 tickets are available here, but you better jump on it, as tickets are selling quickly!! The Rez is located between L.A. and San Diego, slightly favoring the San Diego side.

 After the festival I will be painting at Venice Beach, CA from April 5-7 before heading back to the East Coast! More info including times and specs will be posted as we near the date. 

For quicker updates on my whereabouts and upcoming events, please follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

I sincerely hope to see you at any or all of these events! As always, thank you so much for your love and support. My work is for you to enjoy (:

Love and LIGHT-

EmJae.
