Join us for two public events about the traditions that have inspired this work:
– Sunday August 18, 2-6 pm: Watch THE SALON take shape
Nooksack tribal member Elizabeth King George teaches the Coast Salish Native tradition of making twine with nettles.
Rueben Turk from Seattle’s Good Hair Salon demonstrates the art of braiding naturally kinky, curly hair.
Avant-garde harp by Monica Schley.
– Sunday, September 8, 2-6 pm: Opening celebration of THE SALON
Due to a schedule conflict, there will be no Ethiopian hair braiding demonstration. Instead, we are honored to welcome clothing designer Michael Cepress and Patrick Dorman who will be teaching the art of lavender weaving from 3-5 pm.
**Also on Sept. 8 artists Frances Nelson and Bradley Dunn will be having a reception for their project THRESHOLDS at Kent’s Saar Pioneer Cemetery from 12-2 pm. Make it a day of outdoor art in Kent!**
FREE. ALL ARE WELCOME.
Come learn, participate and share, or just hang out and enjoy the outdoors. Bring a blanket and a picnic if you like. This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. Be prepared to carry out your trash and recycling.
