Poetry Reading and Live Drawing

Zoom Secession Virtual Happy Hour
Friday, March 27, 6pm

While we’re closed until the city allows us to reopen (fingers crossed for April 9), Secession Art & Design is hosting a live-streamed poetry reading by Silvi Alcivar and ink drawing by Joshua Coffy this Friday. This is your chance to see their show “let me tell you a sacred” from your home. Life as we know it is different after COVID-19. We had no idea that we would spend the month of March unemployed or working from home.

Please join us on Friday, March 27 at 6pm for a night of healing. Meet the artists from your home, hear Silvi read her poetry and watch Josh draw as we pass the torch via Zoom. I will be at the gallery to raise a glass to this beautiful show and sell art digitally.

To join, just click this link on Friday at 6pm:

Share in this experience of togetherness, gratitude, and community. We look forward to seeing you!

Secession Art & Design’s first show of 2020, “let me tell you a sacred”, features Silvi Alcivar and Josh Coffy. Both artists took risks and challenged each other to focus on the small wins and beautiful moments in life. Silvi for the first time is expressing herself with color using watercolors, type, and ink. A wall of monarch butterflies fly through her words and gold threads exploring themes of love, life, death, and laughter. Josh plays with the juxtaposition between two series. On one wall is his quiet meditation of black-and-white ink drawings of animals. On the other are bright acrylic paintings that he made while listening to heavy metal. Together their show invites you into this sacred gallery that allows for collaboration and experimentation.
