'Moonlight & Shadow' | 'Empathetic' @ Alexi Era Gallery

'Moonlight & Shadow' for 'Empathetic' at Alexi Era Gallery & Publishing in partnership with The You Rock Foundation, opens tonight! 
This exhibition is very close to my heart as it helps to bring awareness and sincere understanding to the intense and often painful affliction of mental health disorders.

Emapthic
Opening Reception: March 5 (6-8pm)
Runs: March 5 – 26, 2016

This exhibition is created in a partnership with The You Rock Foundation. One in Four people have or will struggle from a diagnosable mental health struggle in their lifetime. There is an intense need for awareness of this difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work. Each artist will work with a mental health disorder of choice based on personal experience or outside influences that have impacted their lives. Art is an invaluable, an incredible resource to educate people on mental health crisis we face worldwide and the stigmas unfortunately still attached to them. This exhibition hopes to bring hope, understanding and awareness to a very important topic.

Artists Exhibited: Anita Inverarity, Anja Altenburg Laursen, Anka Lavriv, Aunia Kahn, Bella Harris, Blaine Schanter, Bob Doucette, Catherine Moore, Chris Mars, Damian Chaves, Deborah Jackson, Emma Overman, Encarni Diaz, Erich J. Moffitt, Gretchen Lewis, Hikari Shimoda, Inge Vandormael, Ingrid Tusell, Jessica, Perner, Junker Jane, Kelly McKernan, Lea Barozzi, Lioba Bruckner, M de Vena, Marie Larkin, Mary Syring, Meredith Marsone, Paul Chatem, Relm, ShirrStone Shelter, Susannah Kelly, Yishu Wang

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
