The summer wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a local art studio in Wilmington especially on the first Friday of the month. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Art Loop then you are really missing out.
This month Cherné Altovise added a twist to her stop by having Katarina Lawrence, a Mixed Media and Henna Artist on site who was creating some beautiful and unique body art.
This was actually my second time visiting the Cherné Altovise studio and if you remember this post from March you saw a few of the many talented artists in attendance. This month, there was only one very talented artist, and as you can tell by the following pictures, he really captured the attention of the visitors.
It was a nice evening which brought several people into the studio to not only see the live art show, but to also view the various art pieces hanging on the walls, or to purchase accessories, listen to the music from a DJ or simply to network and connect with others.
If you don’t live in Delaware, have you attended a local Art Loop in your home town, city or state? However, if you do live in Delaware make sure you check out the Art Loop on the first Friday of the month.
Millennials in Motion
Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending an Impromptu Art Show at Cherné Altovise Studio. I was invited by my “adopted son” Terrance Vann who you may recall was the moderator of the “Out of the Box” Panel for National Entrepreneur Week.
As a mother of two sons, I am very supportive of the millennial generation because with all the bad news being printed about them, more good news should be shared about them.
Whenever I find good news about what’s happening in the state of Delaware, I’ll use my blog as a platform in which to share it with others.
Seeing these millennial artists in motion was awesome but what made it even better was the fact that the owner of the studio is also a millennial! #doingbigthings
In 2000, at the age of ten, designer Cherné Altovise started designing, making and selling jewelry to family and friends. By 2008, her word of mouth business took off, first by starting collections which were debuted through runway shows. These shows expanded her customer lists to over a hundred. Now, Cherné Altovise Jewelry has become a brand sold online, in-house boutiques, and in her own store.
Cherné Altovise is a brand that strives to bring fashion, creativity, and functionality to the everyday fashion icon at an affordable price.
Impromptu Art Show
For the March art loop Cherné Altovise paired up with Terrance Vann and Alim Smith, also known as the color brothers, alongside of Isabel Jean-Louis to paint on the spot around the centralized theme of of their interpretation of “black magic”.
She also featured artist, Melondy whose art was also themed around this topic. The idea behind the show was to do something more than the usual display meet and greet or live painting.
They in turn incorporated everything around the chosen theme from the music to the displays to create a unified atmosphere and it was an awesome show.
Arriving early at the studio which is located at 316 North Market Street there were already several people mixing and interacting with the artists.
I didn’t stay as long as I would have liked, after all, I am the “over 50 crowd” however, I did stay long enough to take the following pictures and have Terrance sign a copy of the Out and About Magazine which features his work on the cover.
