The public is invited to attend an art show and reception with local artist Franceska Alexander and community radio broadcaster Elisa Parker to experience the “Passions” of a new series of paintings and the work of See Jane Do at the Organic Grill in the Seven Hills Business District of Nevada City titled “Follow Your Art with Passion Into Action” from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday (March 21).
“This new series of paintings was created with a variety of mediums and techniques,” said Alexander, a recent MFA graduate from the Creative Inquiry and Interdisciplinary Studies program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. “I utilized what I call ‘engaged lucid dreaming’ and ‘intentional creativity’ in creating these simple yet symbolic images. The experience has been a wonderful journey of inquiry and exploration!”
Eliza Parker of See Jane Do — the award-winning KVMR 89.5FM radio show — works to support the Passion Into Action Conference, a diverse array of community-supporting events, programs and soirees to help turn passions into actions. Ten percent of art sales sold Thursday, including those at the reception will go toward scholarship awards for See Jane Do Passion into Action programs.
John DeMarco and Tenzin Kalden will also be playing their instrumental music during the reception.
The exhibit continues until April 15 and is open for viewing during restaurant hours 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday for brunch. The Organic Grill at California Organics is located at 135 Argall Way, Nevada City. For information, call 530-265-9392 or go to htp://californiaorganics.com.
