Cafe LuLu navigation2265 S Howell Ave

5pm - 10pm

Featuring paintings from Byada Meredith.

This is the part where I should try to speak in a very deep way about my art and why I am making it. Unfortunately, the more I paint, the more I create… the less I want to speak about things, and the more I just want to paint and have people take their own meanings and feelings from what they see. Words can also be beautiful, but these painted windows might be another way to share experiences and points of view and some things we may realize. There is life, and love, some pieces lost and found, a lot of things here. Hopefully you feel that too.

Event Contains: Paintings

Brass Rooster navigation2252 S Kinnickinnic Ave

5pm - 9pm

Featuring artist Shanda Pearce

Inkapades, the name of my “art business”, comes from combing two words; “Ink”, the colorful medium I work most in, and “Escapades”, the origin of which means an adventurous action or escape. Both aptly describe the feeling I get when I’m in the creative process. From the time I could hold a pencil, I was driven by the desire to express myself artistically. My inspiration for my work is the miracle of life, which I find all around me; in the lines and shadows, textures, and colors of nature. I believe the fluid and unpredictable nature of working with alcohol inks and dyes recreates the “perfect imperfection” I find in nature itself. My personal favorite pieces are the “happy accidents” that occur unexpectedly, when I stop working from a preconceived idea, and allow the colors and images to emerge and reveal themselves to me, intuitively!
