NOTE FROM CAROLYN:
As a veteran live artist for Underground, I truly appreciate all the hard work, love, and undertakings that ArtLoveMagic and businesses put into this annual explosive 2-week event, showcasing the visual and performing arts of so many ‘undiscovered’ talents! You’ll also be treated to a few you know very well, AND if you purchase a VIP ticket, well… let’s just say that you’re getting far more ‘Bang For The Buck’!!!!! AND you don’t even have to be present to win! (although, you’d be missing out on an amazing night) Free preview night this Friday, Jan 27th. Exhibit open every day/night thru Feb 10th. Your VIP ticket gets you in an hour early to the main event on Feb 11th (plus all you can drink/eat, free shwag & special performances in an exclusive area). Hurry, though… just a few VIP tickets left! All info available at undergrounddallas.com AND you can keep up with all the incredible featured talents, specials, etc…

The Seven Project’s collaborative art exhibit for a cause!

2 11 2011

I have the honor to be a part of this incredible collaborative art project, which has evolved into the most amazing event to support a very worthy cause! Classic Pilates Studio is hosting the silent auction of seven unique collaborative art pieces by The Seven Project, as well as new and exciting individual works by the project’s collaborative artists and our guest artists for the evening, Frankie Garcia III and Renee Vandevere.

This Saturday’s exciting event will take place in the Turtle Creek area of Dallas, Texas and will feature pilates demonstrations, new art, live music by Matt Barron, and an engaging introduction to this event’s beneficiary, The Fine Arts Program at the Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School. Light bites will be generously provided by Shensei.

Visit Art & Seek’s calendar for details of the event. To learn more about the collaborative art project benefitting the Dallas community, visit The Seven Project’s page on Facebook. The project’s artists work and reside throughout North Texas and include Christian Millet, Nix Johnson, Gina Marie Dunn, Taylor Douglas McClure, Liz London, Richard Ross, and yours truly. This project has been a tremdously challenging and inspiring journey for me over the past two months. The project itself has been such a wonderful experience and opportunity for us all. So much so, that we have already begun preparation to lead a new group of collaborative artists in our next project during the spring in 2012!!!

HOPE BUILDS BRIDGES

Donated artwork for Artists Healing Japan fundraiser (tsunami relief fund)
This and works by several generous artists will be shown Saturday, May 7th at the 21st annual Asian Festival (read further for event and beneficiary details).

HOPE BUILDS BRIDGES

paper collage (signed original)

by Carolyn Collins

On September 15th, 2010 I awoke with a dreamvision and quickly sketched it in my journal to create a future photographic paper collage art piece. Little did I know it was just for this purpose until I got a text on March 15th, 2011 asking if I could create/donate something for this special benefit event. My sleepy handwritten journal notes included: “world travelers?… windows to the world?… boat like an Asian slip… misty/foggy… peaceful, still waters… as if having survived a storm.”

This original dreamvision art piece was a 62-hour labor of love to help those in need, the flood victims in Japan. It features 101 photographs I shot in 9 countries. Built from salvaged debris, the boat is carrying survivors from the dark of the storm to the light of relief. Passengers from around the world are also onboard, as we are all in this together. Flags hoisted represent the support from people of all different perspectives. Candles at the top honor those who did not survive the storm, and additional lights are all who seek solutions to render aid and support. Also included are images representing music, art and other forms of creative efforts to help heal those who are suffering. Thank you for helping us help others in need. Peace & smiles ~Carolyn

The Asian Festival will be held for its 21st year on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 11am-5pm, at the Main Street Garden (1902 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75201)
(event details at http://dallasasian.com/news/the-asian-festival-now-at-main-garden-in-downtown-dallas)

The Japan America Society of Dallas Fort Worth has launched an emergency relief fund that will be used to aid relief and recovery efforts in Sendai, Japan, one of the cities hardest hit by the disaster. Sendai and Dallas have been International Friendship Cities since 1997, and money raised through this fund will be sent to organizations involved directly with relief efforts in Sendai. All contributions are tax-deductible. More about this organization at www.gdaacc.com
