When The Media Shows Up

This has been an exciting few months.  I’ve been preparing for a solo show in November.  I’ve just been selected to be in a juried show in October entitled Conversations in Color.  But truly awesome was being interviewed by Newsday, a major New York newspaper.  I was interviewed in several sessions over the summer and then determined to be one of four artist to be included in a major feature on artists dedicated to their craft for the long haul.

After a month a chatting with the reporter, the paper sent their photographer to my studio for a photo shoot.  While shooting, I discover he’s a PULITZER PRIZE photographer.  I am in AWE!  He’s world travelled and had just returned from covering the presidential political conventions. 

Suddenly, I just had to stop our session when it truly hit me that this truly world travelled photographer who had covered wars, Nelson Mandella, politics and more for decades…was in MY studio shooting my artwork and crocheted jewelry…holy cow!  I suddenly loose my quiet professionalism and shift my mode to an unexpected lighter feel:

Me:  Uhh, can we stop for a moment?

Photographer, slowly lowering camera, concerned:  Is everything alright?

Me:  I need to take a ten second break.

Photog:  You OK?

Me:  I just need a moment to pretend like I’m on the TV game show The PRICE IS RIGHT and they’ve just called my name.  ‘Cause that’s how I’m feeling about right now.  I’ve just been selected from the audience to win prizes.

Photog, truly perplexed:  Huh?…Uhh, OK…go on…

Me, in deep announcer’s voice like from the show:  ALICIA EVANS…COME ON DOWN.

I throw my hands up like they do on the show, jump up and give an excited hush-hush scream:  I can’t believe it.  I have a Pulitizer Prize photographer in my studio, taking pics of lil ole me…YES!  YES!

The photographer is stunned.  He’s laughing, about to drop his camera and realizes he has a crazy behind comediene on hand.  He’s starts chuckling out loud.

I slowly go back to my seat, pose and say all professional, as if nothing just happened, smooth down my clothing and say, “OK…let’s get back to the shoot”.

He continues to chuckle while shooting.

At the end of the session, still smiling, he confesses:  “I ain’t never had so much fun.  You are too funny.”

“Possibilities”, Art & Conversation

My current art show has supported my desire to blend art, music and meaningful conversations.  It has been a testament to what is, indeed, possible when you work the magic of intention.

Conversation and art must be position at the core of who we are collectively.  When we naturally connect through the arts and with one another, it nurtures our soul and the very nature of who we are.

I so look forward to creating more meaningful affairs where we engage and celebrate our humaness.  It’s a mindful thing and let’s keep it rolling.

Here are highlights from the “Possibilities” exhibit authentically connecting so many folks.
