Creative Oasis: The Mission

Pondering over what I’ve learned this year through EforAll Southcoast’s Accelerator Program and the School of Hard Knocks have my gears whizzing like CRAZY!!! I have direction and fuel to get this operation functioning at peak capacity. But where am I going with this idea, goal, responsibility? What is the CREATIVE OASIS? What am I doing with this business? My answer…what NEEDS to be done. In EVERY DAMN WAY POSSIBLE I will be QUENCHING CREATIVE THIRST!!! I plan on alleviating the stress of the times by providing the public venues with creative outlets. I plan on revolutionizing education system with what is foolishly being reduced in at schools…Art.

#CohortLove – The EforAll Southcoast 2016 Summer Accelerator Experience – Part One

Bittersweet describes this experience for me in one word. I feel like life is the same with its good and evil, positive and negative, black / white and so on. These last twelve weeks have challenged me but even better it’s proven some things. The Creative Oasis concept has quenched some of my needs too. It’s introduced me to the business world equipped. Even MORE, equipped to get the answers I need if I can’t figure it out. These valuable resources are the difference in who I was as an entrepreneur and who I can be. I learned “The Entrepreneur” is a builder of Dreams. EforAll South Coast gave me the tools to build whatever I want. I’m building the answer. The answer to get New Bedford up “the lists” of Top Cities for Artists. The answer to at-risk youth having options for their futures (without student loans). Which will ALSO be the answer to supplementing art education need in ALL systems of education.

RAIDERS of the LOST ARTS II – JOURNEY to ATLANTIS (RECAP)

ALL said and done…I’M HAPPY!!! The turn out was GREAT, so far some of Nik Ukleja and Suzanna Blake’s artwork sold which is REALLY the goal of these exhibitions! I enjoy showcasing art through curating and seeing the FRESH pieces, but uniting appreciation and support for an artist’s work is a GREAT FEELING!!! There were MANY familiar faces but I LOVE seeing NEW ones, ESPECIALLY those I invite!

It’s NOT Where You’re From, It’s Where You’re At! Part One

I recently went on a PHENOMENAL road trip to South Florida, with my brother Lloyd LaMarre. We went to see my daughter graduate Nursing school to become an RN. On that trip I went to the Arts and Entertainment district of Wynwood, Miami. It is home to over 70 galleries, museums and collections. I’m not sure if New Bedford has the physical wall space, but I’m going to work on covering them…inside out! By the end of the trip I had time to reflect on what my hometown meant to me, and who it made me (I’ll get into that in another post). BUT, I was happy to get the HELL out of the plague of humidity, and go back Home to New Beige!
