Faerie III at Krab Jab Studios

Enchanting evening at FAERIE III, Krab Jab Studio in Georgetown, with an exhibit curated by POBL's Tara Larsen Chang. It was my first time attending their Faerie themed art openings. For FAERIE III, Tara gathered together an impressive number of artist from as far away as Denmark and New Zealand, and she knows all the artists who submitted. I browsed the art, and accessible artist statements. Nibbled on Faerie food such as sugared grapes and purple lavender lemonade, shrooms, herb cheese, candied berries and purple macarones! All nestled in with twigs and moss. The composer, cellist Betsy Tinney, played her compositions. Tara spoke and introduced three artists who also spoke about the assignment and parameters. A little humor, a great explanation of how Faerie art embodies a spirit filled sense of nature, with all of nature's complexities, both magically beautiful as well as dark and foreboding. Tara did great work here! Congratulations! Better photography and video available soon. iPhone shots for now.

Above is Tara's Fae shining brightly in the exhibit. To the left looks like a still-life painting! It was a gorgeous spread.
