There is a lot going on at A.I. Friedman! On Saturday, July 25, Artist Jim Bergesen (pictured left) will present an event “Inventing and Creating Abstraction” from 12-2 pm. He will demystify Abstraction in Art, with simplified approaches including strategies used in the creation of Abstract Art. This hands-on workshop will utilize mixed media – acrylic, watercolors as well as collage in the process. We will look to MOMA’s “Inventing Abstraction” as a starting point. This is the first in a series of “The Creative Process”. Visit the Event Calendar on our website for more information on this workshop at our Port Chester Store and future events in this series.
Also happening on Saturday, July 25 is a Sidewalk Chalk Event (12-3 p.m.) located outside of WHOLE FOODS MARKET in Port Chester, NY. Valeria Valdez from A.I. Friedman will coordinate the activities to help participants create bold drawings of color on the grounds surrounding WHOLE FOODS. This is an outdoor event (weather permitting).
A.I. Friedman’s Port Chester Store will be the location on Saturday, July 25 for a demonstration of ALEX products including their new hair chalk pens. Representatives from ALEX, makers of children activities and gifts, will demonstrate the new Hair Chalk products (12-2 p.m.). These chalk pens make it easy to change hair colors for a fun new look. When done, they are easily washed off. ALEX and other creative products for children can be found in our store and on our website.
Finally, the Gallery at A.I. Freidman’s Port Chester Store has an exhibit through the month of July which features the photographs of Gary Solem. This wonderful exhibit of sandscape photographs can be viewed until the end of July. Exhibit hours are listed on our event calendar. On the left is a photo taken at the Opening Reception for the Exhibit on July 11 which was well attended. Be sure to stop by and be inspired!
