Golden Studios Artshow Recap

Oct 23, 2021, Golden Studios hosted our very first art show. We featured local visual talents Bakari Akinyeleartbyjoia, Ife the artist, Rich Williams, Josephine Hill , Jada Imani M, Marley-seday, Homer, Chloe Malay, Talaya Whipple, Nate Gski alongside myself with sounds by DJ RWEONTHEAIR. 

 The event was a great success, welcoming over 70 guests. Guests was able to speak with some of their favorite artists and discover more about us and our work and also become collectors of our art. I thought it was important to put on this event because with the rise of social media I feel visual art has been greatly watered down by saturation and instant gratification. Even for myself, I struggle with connecting to my viewers wondering who my work truly touches. It was a refreshing experience being that we are still in a pandemic and for a lot of attendees this was their first art show since 2019. We got such great feedback and have been encouraged to throw more events, so definitely look out for that in the future.

Mall Glamour Pop Up Portrait Session!

Golden Studios hosted our first Pop Up portrait session and it was a complete success! Families, friends and lovers came out to create  memories that they can cherish forever. I was inspired by the old school mall glamour photos of the late 90’s- early 2000’s. Me and my friends would get dressed in color coordinated outfits and head to the mall to take photos and share with our other friends at school. Then we would write some little cute message on the back. That was a time before social media took over. Social media definitely has made that a lost art :(  But we brought it back! We featured 5 different backdrops and shot 15 sessions in total, giving each participant 30 minutes. We also offered wallet and 5x7 prints for an additional fee. Everyone had a great time and you can see that they were just excited to be taking a blast from the past. Definitely something I would love to do again. Check out some of what went down!
