"Only use real flowers", they said. "Real flowers are better", they said.
Well we at LavBash never do what "They" say! Lol (Unless they're our clients of course! 😄)
Our grand #fauxflower bouquets are absolutely stunning and even better, they never die!
Let us add a little #lavish to your next event!
TONIGHT! 🖤 If you’re looking for some healthy distraction from the deep political woes that have beset many of us in #yeg may I suggest coming to watch the LIVE outcome of this rather large and cheerful painting I’ve started? 🤷🏻♀️
This piece is inspired by the decidedly bold, vibrant (and quite sexy) poetry of Megan Dart! She’ll be reading, I’ll be painting and it’s all for the Edmonton Poetry Festival’s Landscape event - A live mash up of poetry and visual art
Take heart, we’ve always got art. The event is from 8-11pm. Link in bio. 🦊
What is it about summer time?
What is it about freedom?
What is it about beauty and the way it reflects on the skin?
What is it about hair?
What is it about style?
What is it about the water that makes the young child smile?
What is it?
The smell of fresh air,
The ability to dream,
The melanin that gleams off her skin,
The way in which it's wrapped,
I think it's close to summer. .
"I think its close to summer" is a contemporary art exhibit by lead curator Justin Black that represents the feels of summertime — harping on freedom, black beauty, hair, the sweet smell of fresh air, vibrant colors, and ultimately happiness. This collection is assisted with a 15 line poem in which blacks ask and answers questions as if he is writing to himself. Giving the viewer insight into what he believes summer is and serving as a reflection of the collection. Black features the works of Sterling Brown, Princess Karibo, Le Tuong, Alena Shymchonak, Morris Kantor and more.
We hope you Enjoy!
P.S. Because it is actually close to summer. -@tzastinsgallery .
