Come join us for the 2019 Santa Fe Japanese Cultural Festival!
When: 11am-3pm, May 11th, 2019.
Where: Santa Fe Convention Center
Maternal Mitochondria will be at this year’s Japanese Cultural Festival! Catch us on Saturday, May 11th at the Santa Fe Convention Center. We’ll be doing a demonstration/workshop combo on the Japanese art of suminagashi, or ink painting. There will also be lots of performances, vendors, and Japanese food! Maternal Mitochondria will be there from 11am-3pm, but the festival itself runs from 9:30am-5pm. Admission is $5 for adults, and free for children under 12. Visit the website for more information.
Not art related, but homesteading instead! I will be teaching a 4-hr workshop on February 9th on how to start your own little backyard flock. Sign up through the continuing ed department at Santa Fe Community College! Only $49.
Suminagashi in the Park will be up at the Railyard Park this Saturday! Come say hi. Here is a copy of the letter we sent to the participants– Thanks to all the workshop participants who created suminagashi and poetry in the Railyard.
The pieces will be hanging in the park—informal opening Sat Sept 8, 3-5 pm.
We will be sitting outside the community classroom to say hi and direct you. We have woven together your words to make a long communal poem. You might not be able to identify your exact words or suminagashi but you are indeed part of the spirit of this mosaic. It is all of us together.
To find the installation:
At the community classroom face south, (your back to Paseo de Peralta). Walk towards the rainbow compass sculpture. Look for a group of evergreens. Discover our art and poetry!
It will be up for a month, so come by at your convenience. Bring your friends and enjoy a stroll!
