The People’s Pour:
The ViBe Creative District and Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art welcome the public to participate in Virginia Beach's largetst paint party! Our goal is to create 100 new artworks with the help of our community. Register in advance to claim for your canvas to participate in a People's Pour with local artist nez from Nezlife Studios.
Virginia Beach based artist Nez-- that's zen backwards-- is a three-time Iraq War veteran and a cancer survivor. Art saved her life. After debilitating illness left her bedridden and hopeless, a therapist prescribed that she watch Bob Ross videos. Skeptically, she obliged and found the encouragement and positive affirmations she needed to hear. Using the help of social media and Youtube videos, Nez found the art of acrylic pouring enabled her to create art within her limited physical ability. The result was a visual and mental escape from the hardship she was suffering. Now, Nez wants to offer her gifts to the community. This workshop is open to all ages and all abilities-- if you can flip a cup, you can create your own unique acrylic pour artwork.
Nez is currently one of the featured artists in MOCA's Satellite Gallery exhibition, In Service, that pays tribute to current and past veterans who also pursue their passion for art. Just like their time in service benefited our freedoms, their time as artists enhances our cultural community.
This event will take place between 5-9pm on Thursday, October 10th at Virginia MOCA located at 2200 Parks Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451. The featured artist will lead two workshops scheduled for 6pm and 730pm. Visitors are encouraged to come early or stay late to enjoy, free admission to MOCA’s galleries, art activities, yard games, a cash bar and local cuisine from Prosperity Kitchen & Pantry.
Reservations are required to claim your canvas and spot for the artist-led acrylic pouring painting. Participants will receive a 6 inch square canvas, paints and all materials required for the activity.
This event is supported in part by our partners at Virginia Beach Arts. Virginia Beach City Government Visit Virginia Beach.
