Creative Revival: Nurture & Unblock Your Creativity via The Artist’s Way
Begins January 26, 2019
Del Ray Artisans Gallery
2704 Mt Vernon Ave
Alexandria, VA 22301
Do you actually believe you are a talented and creative individual capable of creating wonderful things? Do you have creative goals but have difficulty getting started with making things happen? Do you need support to make your creative dreams a reality? Are you already a practicing creative who needs inspiration and encouragement to keep producing?
You are cordially invited to join the Creative Revival Artist’s Way Circle, a facilitated group by artist and curator Sharon Burton that will meet once a week for 12 weeks as we go through The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Together, we will share our journey into finding your creative “Muse” whether it expresses itself through art or just finding a new creative career. The program is focused on supporting relationships in removing artistic blocks and fostering confidence.
The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path To Higher Creativity is a self-help book by author Julia Cameron. The book was originally produced to assist individuals with artistic creative recovery, by teaches techniques and exercises to assist in gaining self-confidence in harnessing creative talents and skills.
Each week we will meet to discuss each chapter of the book, our daily journaling practice (via “The Morning Pages”), weekly Artist’s Dates that you select to inspire yourself and other insights that you wish to share on this special journey. Each participant will receive The Artist’s Way book and journal for the program, as well as access to a Facebook Group and a group of other artists and creatives moving through the journey with you.

Members, as well as Black Artists from other cities, have created beautiful, powerful postcards depicting the theme IMAGINE in support of Black Artists of DC. For a listing of members and supporters go to blackartistsofdc.org.
BADC is a non-profit organization that each year offers exhibitions of local and national Black Artists.

Many of the artists will be present at the event; all artwork shown will be available for sale, cash/charge and carry. For further information visit the Black Artists of DC website at blackartistsofdc.org.

Washington DC 20001
Over 220 DC area artists have come together to demonstrate the power of visual communication to support true democratic values of tolerance, inclusion and openness and to resist efforts to divide us by race, gender, sexual preference, class or region. The vision of One House is for a country where we stand together. Each artist contributed a 12” square panel dedicated to an ancestor who came to this country – voluntarily or involuntary – or was here before the arrival of the Europeans. A structure erected in the Touchstone Gallery will be covered entirely by those panels, representing the remarkable range of diverse humanity who have combined to make the strength of America.

Reimagining Rosa Parks Exhibit
April 28-July 3, 2014
Prince George’s Community College
Rosa Parks’ refusal to yield her seat created a clear and defining moment toward the pursuit of racial equality in the United States, and nearly 60 years later that act of civil disobedience carries a universal legacy. Reimagining Rosa Parks, examines and reimagines Rosa Parks' identity and Civil Rights legacy as applied to contemporary Civil Rights issues.
The exhibition was inspired, in part, by the Book Bridge Project and its selection of Jeanne Theoharis’ The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, which describes a different Rosa Parks—one who was keenly aware of how to engage in civil disobedience to provoke change.
Artists included: Nava Atlas, Aileen Bassis, Sharon Burton, Laurence Chandler, Drew Costley, Carl Ferrero, Charles Mason III, Becky Nasadowski, Beverly Paul, Anthony Tremblay, David Willison, and Malandela Zulu.
Rosa Parks 7053 was exhibited at this show.

Goddess Soul is a collage series that is about celebrating the feminine – mind, body, creativity and spirit. It is a series that recognizes the “goddess” that exists within all women and insights that we learn as women that are uniquely ours. A portion of all sales from this exhibition will be donated to CARE’s programs focusing on empowering women in poverty.
