Fade 2 Blaq (Sean Garrison Studios)

Fade 2 Blaq opening reception was a success.

On March 9, 2012 over 500 attended the Fade 2 Blaq opening reception. The artwork was well received and I was told by one of the attendees, "...this reminds me of New York." I replied "...New York will remind you of this." It was a night where the artists were well received and the attendees enjoyed themselves. The closing? Well...if this night were a bang, the closing will be a boom.

The Artist

We create to allow the world to see us from the inside out. Each stroke or shutter click a block that sets itself up as the one that supports the success of the next to follow. We get to "complete" a part of us for the world to see without fear and with something to say, no matter how intellectual or youthful, it is us. Come see us.

What is fade 2 blaq?

fade 2 blaq is a coming together of artists of color from various backgrounds whose collective soul breathing offers a refreshing view of art. From painters, illustrators, photographers, etc. these artists are "the yesterday, the here, the now, the tomorrow, and forever will be" in the worldwide art community; offering pieces of their souls, to add peace to a world where color is often lost among the achromatic moments of time.

Participating Artists - Thank you!

For the artists I have spoke with via phone or email and have committed to the show, I say "Thank you". Your presence and energy will make the show. It will be big!!!
