More events at Monks' Corner


In honor of Frida Kahlo's birthday, we are so lucky to have the gorgeous Valerie Clark who has agreed to pose for our first live painting public event! Valerie will be in Frida-inspired fashion from 7-9PM in a single pose. Thank you Monk's Corner Taproom for extending us the invitation for this event!

We are inviting a featured group of artists in a variety of media to create images inspired by Valerie's stage. Those images will be featured in a pop-up gallery (details to be revealed at a later date) to illustrate how two artists can look at the same scene, but create somethign completely original. 

Although we will be featuring some artists, anyone who is moved by our muse of the month to photograph, draw, paint, sketch, sculpt is invited to participate. The space is cozy, so please be respectful with your setup should you bring supplies. If you post your piece, please #505Fridas so we can share your genius!

We thank photographer Richard Reickenberg for extending use of his brilliant images of Valerie to help promote our event. Valerie and Richard will be available during pose breaks to sign a limited number of posters. One poster per guest. First come basis. Richard will also be one of our featured artists!

We hope you can join us to either observe the creative process or to participate in the creating. Post images with hashtag #505Fridas. Please share!
