As an artist social media can just be too much. Well, this is true for people in general. That’s why sometimes you need step away from it. Case in point my dear friend Ela Barton. Ela has decided to take a three day social media juice cleanse meaning being MIA for three days.
Ela was a little worried since she has events she needs to prompt. So I thought; “Hey! Let me help you out. Promote your events while you’re gone.”
This is me doing that.
ELA HAS AN EVENT! On December 10th. Crosscut Arts Salon: Housing Affordability (It’s things like this that make me miss Seattle.) Here’s the show’s details (via Eventbrite)
“Crosscut’s curated Arts Salon series will feature artists who develop visual, film or performance art that explore key challenges in our community.
The first Arts Salon in this series will feature artists who have roots in the South Lake Union and Belltown area and who, through their work, performance and voice, will share the value of artists and art to the city, their experience living and working in the city, and visions for a creative future in the midst of development and a rise in housing costs.
Enjoy complimentary appetizers and drinks before several artists take the stage including:
-Greg Lundgren, Seattle-based artist, author, filmmaker and entrepreneur, has strong roots in South Lake Union. Lundgren curates art installations with Vital 5 Productions, runs The Hideout and heads the alternative headstone movement at Lundgren Monuments. He will kick off the event with a history lesson on South Lake Union`s art scene.
– Ela Barton, Seattle-based slam poet champion and founder of Rain City Poetry Slam, will perform their “unapologetic, smart and sharp-tongued” (Seattle Gay News) work.
– Seattle-based artist Cathy McClure is known for her toy sculptures, while Alfred Harris will display his transluscent, fibrous, paper creations. Both will speak to creative affordable art space solutions.
We hope to see all of you there for this incredible line up of Seattle`s artistic minds!”
