ABOUT THE SHOW
We are excited to announce the artists that will be exhibiting their artwork in the 3rd Annual “Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show and we hope you will join us. This year’s tagline was inspired by the curator, Dana DellaCamera’s own journey allowing her art to “Be Seen” and no longer hide or be stopped by fear of judgment by herself or others. This show is not about creating only pretty art but honest art because the truth is not always pretty but it sets us free and that makes the art vulnerable and beautiful. Every artist in the show is intimately sharing their soul and emotions through their work and point of view.
“Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show is a platform for artists to “Be Seen”, be vulnerable, and share their gifts and message with the world. Cloud 9 is a world where you allow yourself to dream, trust, develop, risk, expand, take action and create without limitations, expectations or conformity! It is art straight from the heart.
All of the art that will be exhibited will be accompanied with a short paragraph from each artist stating why each piece puts them on “cloud 9″ or significance to them. The intention is for all who attend
the exhibition to participate, experience and leave inspired to “be seen” in their lives.
The 3 floors of the art gallery will feature a variety of artists and styles from installation art to sculpture, oil/acrylic painting, illustration and mixed media. Artists: Alicia H. Torres, Amanda Walling, Claudia Polzer, Ellie Manso Kane ,Josafat Miranda, Olga Lucia Vargas, Luz Marina Ramirez, Margarita Correa Ochoa,Maruchi Carmona, Maria Teresa d’Azuncena, Mary Polhmann, Nancy Desantis,Reine Le Bohec, Rosa Sanchez, Shade Aaronberg, and Stephanie Crystal Espinosa.
