Please join Art Is Life Studio for Art in Grief, an event artfully honoring the grieving process from 6-10 p.m. April 21 at Yeager Office Suites of Plano.
I decided to co-produce this show with my Creative Assistant, Jaclyn Sartore, because I recently lost my beloved cat, Tiger Lily, after 14 years together. One thing that I had to get over was realizing that a loss is a loss, so when I was tempted to think she was just a cat she was so much more than that, because she was with me through very pinnacle times in my life. When we grieve we are experiencing loss of all kinds, not just a loving companion but an opportunity, a dream, a friendship or when we go through life-altering changes.
This show is an intimate event about working through the process through several art mediums and experiences. Our schedule of events includes a writing workshop, spoken word, guided meditation, and music. All materials will be provided for the workshop. Certified grief recovery specialist Linda Jones, The Writing Doula, will also be speaking about the misconceptions of the stages of grief. The wonderfully talented Lorynn the Redhead will be performing.
Current artist list includes:
Brassfly Studio, Myriah Garcia, Marilyn Vicente, Penelope Berg Paintings and Samax Amen
