Aves and the World - Artist Tour

Aves and the World is a documentary and unique exhibition about climate change with a focus on our feathered friends.  As an artist, the task was to venture into the great Trinity forest and create art from our experience.  There were close to about 200 artists from neighboring Dallas urban jungle.  I arrived late and happened to a stream of beautiful weirdos heading into the forest.  Dallas is not known for her flora and fauna, so it was a beautiful site to behold.  

Despite the hot A.F. temperatures, it was good to get outside.  While traipsing the forest, I ran into Booker T. alumni  Patricia Rodriguez and Joey Chabolla.  

2016 Spring exhibition date to follow.  Below are a few pictures of the afternoon. 

The Peace Puzzle

The Peace Puzzle was a great exercise as I examined my life to question what peace meant to me.  I discovered my version of peace was an action. Peace to me is working in the garden, sowing a seed with patience and a pledge to give it the best possible start.  The image I created for the Peace Puzzle is a representation of sowing a seed with an intention that can connect to many meanings. Using ancestral geometric imagery, I illustrated the strength one mighty seed possesses.  The seed with nourishment can reproduce for many generations and this what I strove to convey in this block.  Lastly, as an unknown author once said, “Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes!” So there is that.

Oak Cliff Visual Speedbump

The life of an artist is a wild pursuit. I, Angela Faz opened our home and invited a bunch of people I didn't know to come in and see some art!  If you have a partner their support is crucial in this endeavor.  Luckily, my partner takes particular pride in creating a nest so delightful that it was easy to say yes to the experience.  But, I wasn't the first to do it.  Chuck and George have been turning up the funk in Dallas for over a decade. Their home is a fun house of creative energy.  H/T to Erica Felicella for including me in her bump back in 2009 and for always fanning the creative fire in her friends.  

I showcased a series of prints in our converted breezeway. (thanks to CB city) Beasties is a series of prints based on gender identity.  I also invited a few artist to join the fun.  That Guy Joey a fabulous jewelry artist. Karla Garcia, a mythical beast conjurer.  Danielle Ellis, a upcycle enthusiast and painter.
