Moved by the magnificent array and the quality of art in Evelyn’s home, Truckee resident Elissa Slanger, an artist in her own right, produced a heartwarming and inspiring thirty-minute film, “Evelyn” and asked us to plan a showing.
“Evelyn” will be featured at Women, Art and the Creative Process at Cedar House Sport Hotel event center on Sunday, April 22. In addition, Slanger has assembled accomplished artists to speak about their work following the Tahoe-Truckee premiere of “Evelyn.” Hear from Brooke Bishop, Nancy Tieken Lopez and Eva Nichols. Expect to hear honest feedback about their creative process, palette choices and art.
I’m excited to announce, that’s not all. Inspired by the color, the fabrics and the originality depicted in “Evelyn,” muralist Susie Alexander, one of the most productive and interesting mural artists on the west coast, will facilitate an upbeat and playful evening at Cedar House on Tuesday, April 24. Dive into texture, colors and diverse shapes to embellish and personalize a pre-cut one-dimensional hat while exploring your connection to female archetypes. Alexander believes that creativity exists within everyone and it is our birthright to find a unique way of expressing our creativity. Having experienced the healing power of art and expression on a personal level, Alexander’s passion and contagious positive energy will guide the take home art project.
