Happy Holidays All!!

Hope you are finding ways to relax, rejuvenate and stay warm and I sure hope that includes joining in on Open Studio Night December fun!!  I am excited to announce there will be a guest presenter at this months Open Studio, Heidi Kraay (see below for more information), which is going to add a bit more of a directed format but sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Due to the special presentation this evening, you will need to arrive at 7PM and the night will end around 9PM.  The cost for Open Studio is $15.00 dollars per person, which includes all supplies, snacks, and drinks as well as all the creativity you can want to explore.

Please let me know if you will be coming by emailing me at artalleyinc@gmail.com as there is limited space, thus I need to know how many will be coming to assure there is enough space. I will send out a confirmation email when I hear from you so if you don’t hear back from me, please send another email as there are times these things get lost in cyberspace.


SPECIAL GUEST PRESENTER:  Meet Heidi Kraay, who will not only be bringing us a little visual art but also the incredible art and gift of movement and writing.  Here is a little bit about HeidiShe is a Playwright, writer and theater maker Heidi Kraay writes to communicate with those who have been silenced (by themselves or loved ones or strangers), with the disconnected, the fragmented–hoping more of us can reach toward each other and learn how to live better together. She is an MFA candidate in Creative Inquiry, Interdisciplinary Arts at California Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco). She currently shares time between California and Boise, where she writes, makes theater and teaches young artists through Boise Contemporary Theater and The Cabin. Full-length plays include Super Secret Site Specific Something (co-created with Tracy Sunderland and Sarah Gardner), New Eden and DIRT, which attempt to hold out a hand and connect us by sharing time, space and the understanding that it’s hard being human. Heidi is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, Inc., check out her webpage for more information www.heidikraay.com.  We are going to be blessed to have her with us for this grand night!  

 

DIRECTIVE FOR THE NIGHT:  In this multi-sensory experience connecting mind, body and environment, discover what we can learn from space, time and the hidden places inside ourselves, through writing, movement and visual art. We’ll work with our senses, memory and image to unlock stories and experiment with how we share them: exploring on our feet and recording on the page. Playing with how those words and images manifest in the space between us, we’ll come away with a stronger sense of who and where we are in this moment

The details one more time: Open Studio starring Heidi Kraay, will run from 7-9PM on Wednesday, December 2nd.  If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Also, the location of Art Alley as changed and is now in Meridian and part of Northwest Neurobehavioral Health (see address below).


Cheers!  Lisa
