Imperatively Light: Saturday, April 27th, 6 - 9 PM


Come and enjoy a social viewing of the "imperatively light" artwork of Melissa Spiegel and Alanna Floreck!
Melissa uses a ‘from the ground up’ approach to create handmade paper and pressed flower collages, focusing on the material itself. Alanna will be displaying photography from her previous "Primavera" collection featured last year at Caffe a la mode, but this time conveying a new message, complemented by and blending with Melissa's work. They will also be collaborating on two brand new mixed media pieces specifically for the show.

‘Imperatively Light‘ emphasizes the importance of art that illustrates the softness and simplicities in our world. During a time when there are extreme hardships and brutalities occurring every day, it Is important for artists to use the creative power to speak out on these events. We believe it is also quintessential to have work that is, in essence, aesthetically pleasant, with the hopes of instilling peace and serving as a reminder that the so-called "mundane" is worth looking at in depth.

In other words, Lightness is imperative to weight.

ALSO: Live music by Shannon Rogers, Dylan Holzhauer, and Dan Wixtrom & Kayla Holterman!
