Tomyé: Living Artist

Encouraging Art Engagement

” Of The People, For The People “

Food lines, in the best of times, are at popular cafes. For example Aunt Mary’s Cafe relocated next to the once popular, now closed after opening in 1939, Hoopers Chocolate.  Returning to Aunt Mary’s, the address is 4640 Telegraph Av., off 46th st.  Oakland CA. The location is in the turn-around Temescal District.  Once inside the Cafe, the public also relishes Artworks which enhance the environment.  At least Tomyé, Living Artist believes in engaging the senses of people.  As well as smelling sumptuousness visitors can see and respond to her figurative Gouache Paintings, Enamel on Copper image and Fused Glass Slumped Art referencing “Perspective”, “Contemplation”, “Sound Bites” etc.  Such things as these, typically swirl around the tables in conversation.  The eighteen Artworks on view through Tue. Nov. 28, 2017, every day except major holidays, 8AM – 3PM, are worthy of a write-up.  Checking the quest book, near the restrooms, one viewer noted Tomyé Art is “Dope”

You have to know American Slang to relish this comment.

Directly contact the Artist (510) 452-0403 or tomyegouache@sbcglobal.net

P. S. …knowing the cost of Art can seem rich, payment plans are noted.

Musicians in this Life

back of Mindful Visions Announcement Card Feb 2015okay so I often say in my next Life I’ll be a musician.                 While here, it’s great to know of musicians who are just as dedicated to their craft as Visual Artists.

I hope you’ll allow time to give a listen to Sound Oasis Band, a group I’ve just become aware.

These are New World, Jazz & Rock local guys, composer guitar player Darryl Pulley, Keyboard Player Dave Moltzen and Bass player Gearon Crockett.  Tuesday night is a great night to stop into Prescott Joseph Center  for as little time or the full time until 7:30.  Yes this is time dated event.  You can purchase your ticket(s) on Eventbrite.  Look for Mindful Visions and Sound Oasis

Nodding One’s Head

Eric Jekabson Quintet at Chapel of Chimes 72 dpichapel of chimes photo

Yes, its the middle of the week if you work a traditional M-F. Sunday, the most recent Sunday afternoon, was light filled.  Beautiful jazz music played by trumpeter Eric Jekabson, soothing sounds massaged from Kasey Knudsen saxophone,                        John Wiitala gently bass-in with melodic keys of pianist Grant Levin all about the rafters of Julia Morgan’s designed Chapel of the Chimes.  Drummer Hamir Atwal brought sounds to foot patted floor. My, my, my, to get away for 90 minutes from being reminded of the fearful death of enjoying life.

Timing: Joyce Gordon Gallery Exhibit

Where one treads or speaking the current phrase, leaves a carbon footprint, may matter.  Closer scrutiny of what I can do in my Art to reduce waste, involves several friends, neighbors and buddies. They provide me with beer and wine bottles.  Collectively, they enhance the meager number of bottles I usually have to work with.  Cutting beer, wine and window glass and fusing them to create “Art de objects” is my latest fascination.
