A World Without Categories...Art Is Why I Get Up in the Morning...You?

An S.O.S.: Calling Upon All Angels

Joy Matters*

*Passion & Compassion*

Seek out, seek in...always seeking, always on a journey to bridge the world within with the world around.

Knowing that so many are hurting and alone when there is no need.

If we could just pause long enough to turn the tide.

We are a force of nature because we are nature.

Even when the oil runs dry, the sun will still fuel us. All the panic takes us further away from our natural state, our connection to the creative force, and to the brilliant power of simply being alive. 

Enjoy the ocean if you can and work toward it.

I aim to use my time to add to the creative rather than destructive forces vying for the Earth's resources.

I have found over a million Earth angels on the same mission: to create sustainable beauty out of life.

Let this be a prelude and not the exception.

I honor the lights of this great city as a power point for change, as the center of art, and as a vine of near-ripe revolutionaries.

Artists, women, good people of the Earth rising: rise some more. 

*Revolution begins with personal evolution...

Bless & Be Blessed*

Art Heals By Layla Love - Photography Exhibit this coming Wednesday, June 24: 6-9pm

Hello Dearness,

Art is why I get up in the morning -- so it is always an honor and a joy to be able to share...

This is an invitation to an opening this coming Wednesday, June 24th, 6-9 pm:

I will be showing around 50 brand-new, editioned photographs alongside amazing wearable art couriered by Yuki Tanaka.

The National Arts Club
15th Gramercy Park South
(between Park Ave & Irving Place)

More art & wine 'til late at:
545 West 45th Street
(between 10th & 11th Avenues)

* The show will be open for an extended amount of time so if you happen to be unavailable for the opening but would still like to pass through, you will be able to do so for at least a week (or two) at both The National Arts Club & Baron.

* If you are able to come that would be wonderful...wanting to fill the space with good art, good people & good intentions. I have been working to shape the show around the notion that art heals. They are the things I have seen that have inspired me most. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share and to provide a place for our community to once again convene, celebrate, share & support. There are many beautiful folk involved in making all this possible -- so much gratitude to the National Arts Club, to Cathrine Johnson, Anthony Hayden-Guest, Eric Franck, Eric Trometer, Yuki Tanaka, Duggal, and to you, us, we...may the best in us be lost and found, and reborn into a network of folk with new stories and a way of coming together, of rising and perpetuation growth, inspiration...change being the only constant.

Love to you butterfly comrades.

Let me know if you can make it -- hoping so.

Love to your everything,
