Artists, we need you! You are invited to a special pre-party on Friday October 5th from 3 - 5pm at the Southern Shore Art Association Gallery to launch this special "work of art".

The Southern Shore Art Association is pleased to present "Recycled Releases": a unique "work of art" by artist Sadie Bridger and curated by Anneke Dekker.

In this piece, Sadie is creating a public ritual space where there is no piece of art without the effort of others and "everybody is an artist". Most people know instinctively that self-expression has a therapeutic benefit. Our ancestors drew paintings on their cave walls as a means of expressing themselves. Consciousness -- thought -- being alive -- can for better or worse cause anxiety, and one of the best ways to get rid of anxiety is to express it. Thus writing, drawing, painting, singing -- all these forms that are called "art" began as ways of transforming thoughts and feelings.

Sadie hopes that a work of art will be created not primarily by her, but by the participants in the process. Here, the viewer, anybody that enters the Gallery, can choose to express anything, in any form or fashion, while working with recyclable materials.

Please join the artist on Friday October 5, from 5-8pm, for the opportunity to "be an artist" and the free Opening Reception at the Southern Shore Art Association Gallery and the monthly "First Friday" celebration in Michigan City?s historic Uptown Arts District. Light snacks and libations will be served.

On "Last Sunday" the 28th of October from 2-4pm, please join us again for a different "Last Sunday" event, "What is Art Anyway ? Everybody is an Artist", to view the completed project, put on finishing touches and take your part of it home if you wish.

Press Release June 14, 2012

Cara-a-Cara Gallery Reception
Sabor Restaurant
June 28th Thursday 6pm-9pm

Sabor Restaurant & CISA Studios join together to bring you an evening filled with the best things in life friends, food and art! Join us on June 28th for the unveiling of the newest works from CISA's artists.

Cara-a-Cara or "face-to-face" became the theme and title for the show almost accidentally. Felix Maldonado, owner of CISA studio, realized that many of his artists were working on portraits, both of themselves and historical figures, independently of each other. Felix said "it was almost like something was in the air, pushing these people to explore faces and images."

Sabor Restaurant and Tequila Bar will host the opening reception for Cara-a-Cara on June 28th from 6-9 pm. Participating artists will be on hand to share their inspirations and discuss their works. Sabor will serve complimentary selections from its Nuevo Latino tapas menu.

I seen the 18 artists show at Vogt in Tinley. It was wonderful. I am a art instructor for Garden Center Services in Burbank Il. My students are adults with disabilities. I would love to take my students to see the next 18 artist show if it comes back to Vogt.
