Gallery Preview 4-7pm :: Main Event 7pm – 2am
Create:Fixate inspires the community to explore nature through art and specifically ‘Trees!’ What is it about these majestic beings and the noble role they play in our existence here on earth. Trees clean the air, provide medicine, food, and homes. Then there is the symbolism of their structure from the roots, the trunk, the branches, leaves, nuts, and the bearing of fruit. Branching Out, suggests innovation, change, and exploration. The tree of life, a common motif in religion, mythology, and philosophy, alludes to the interconnection of all life on our planet while representing strength and knowledge. Embrace the concept of ‘Branching Out’ along with the exhibiting artists from the Los Angeles creative community who will share their vision of what trees mean to them. We also inspire the community to live more eco-friendly lives to not only respect nature and what it provides for us, but also to preserve its thriving magic for generations to come. Lastly, Branch Out – take a break from our busy lives, step into nature, examine and explore its majesty, take in the Illuminated Tree Knowledge that is all around us. Trees are our Super Heroes!
