Mother & Son Showcase Art @ Sip This Exhibit

Did you know that Sip This is hosting an art exhibit this weekend featuring 20 local artists?  What specifically caught my attention was the mother/son duo who will be showing original creations from the pair.  How awesome is that?  I'm FB friends with Mom Amanda, who is also a fellow/local mom blogger from Long Beach and hosts the site Baby Green Design and Baby Green Design.  Not a mistake.  She has two very different sites for different functions.  You should check out her site. I contacted the duo to find out exactly what they will be showing.

Amanda says:

"When Chris, the creator, started to spread the word that he was setting up an art show at the coffee shop, it sparked an idea I had wanted to execute for a long time working in collaboration with someone to make multi-media pieces. I concurrently observed how all the art made in my son's school was great, but always directive (i.e.: paint what you did over Spring Break, draw a tiger, etc). So I wanted him to have a totally freeing, "no rules," "anything goes" art experience, as well as a sense of what the collaborative art process is like. We call our series CO-CREATION and will be showing four collages in the show at Sip This called "TV," "Home," "Faith," and "War", and will continue to make them for sale in my Etsy Shop because we had a lot of fun doing it. You can see by the names of them that they are each a bit political in nature but he's a very conscious kid so it was a natural expression. The pieces still remain playful and interesting, regardless of their message. I hope you'll get a chance to come by and see our pieces and all the work of the 20 or so artists."

I contacted Sip This co-owner David Sabatino who says, "Stephanie (Pontillo) and I are very excited for Friday's art show,"  This is our first collective art show featuring many different artists and styles. We love offering our space to artists and giving the community an opportunity to see something new every month."

Good things are happening here in Valley Stream, dont'cha think?
