Oct 23, 2021, Golden Studios hosted our very first art show. We featured local visual talents Bakari Akinyele, artbyjoia, 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.
