Thank you to everyone who attended ArtSeed’s Exhibition Opening Reception and made it a success! Special thanks to the musicians, King David, Chili Corder, Jill Brindel, and William Klingelhoffer, as well as Kai and other Tides friends for hosting the event, providing refreshments, and supporting two years of art-making (see pictures above). 

ArtSeed’s Art-a-thon will continue through the summer until September 10th, when there will be ArtSeed’s Tides Converge exhibition, “Dream Earth People on Sabbatical” Closing Reception, on Saturday, September 10th from 3-5 pm, so mark your calendars! It will feature new art pieces created throughout the Art-a-thon, as well as ones made during ArtSeed’s upcoming Annual Fine Arts Summer Intensive Camp.
