$7 per workshop
Free for Ashé Side by Side Members in good standing.

We are proud to announce that Itshanapa Dail Chambers is the guest curator and monthly arts workshop facilitator for this Side by Side exhibition. A visual artist & Usui reiki master teacher, Chambers is a social entrepreneur, published author, lecturer and community arts organizer based in Saint Louis, MO and New Orleans, LA.

As a prequel to the exhibit, the guest curator will be leading monthly workshops on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Ashé Power House. Participants will be creating multi-media works of art that will be included in the Fourth Annual Side by Side Wetlands Art Tour Exhibition. 

Description: Participants will work with a wide variety of media as they investigate mind, memory, imagination and the creative, transformative energy of the river. River cities from ancient African civilizations to the present are hotbeds for metamorphosis, longstanding sculptural works and the formation of cross cultural commerce. The Mississippi River & Nile River Connection will serve as catalysts for exploring our understanding of our relationship to water as we develop a variety of creations.
