THIS IS TRUE2
September 3 – September 29
ArtLoveMagic will fill the walls of the Janette Kennedy Gallery in the month of September with the return of one of their most demanded events, “This Is True 2.” The arts organization based out of South Side on Lamar will celebrate the written word with original visual creations inspired by the work of some of their favorite local writers. Poets and painters will stand side by side in this display of collaboration and cohesion as ArtLoveMagic shows its love for words and wordsmiths.
The opening reception for “This Is True 2” will be held Thursday, September 3rd, and will feature readings of the poems by the writers themselves, as the visual pieces are unveiled to the poets and the audience for the first time.
The Janette Kennedy Gallery will also see a number of events throughout the month which are designed with community interactivity in mind. ALM’s Artistic Director Iris Candelaria will host a special Wine & Paint class on Friday, September 11th @ 7:00 pm. A poetry writing salon, workshop and open mic will be co-conducted with another Dallas based artistic community, Mad Swirl, on Sunday, September 20th. We will also provide a live figure drawing class led by local favorite Eddie Medina (DATE TBA).
