Resin Gallery Hermosa Beach to host Love SB Style this Saturday
by Bethany Willetts
Hermosa Beach’s Indivisible Arts is debuting the inaugural of what it hopes will become an annual “Love South Bay Style” on Saturday, August 20. The daylong festival of art, music, sound baths, and journaling will be held at Resin Gallery on Cypress Avenue in Hermosa Beach.
Eddie Donaldson, of the street art resource GuerillaOne, and the national “Love Style” series, is a collaborating curator. Michal Pascal, a meditation singer will lead a guided meditation. Other experiences will include a “heart opening” sound bath and art workshops.
The all ages events begin at noon.
An art exhibit, featuring over 75 artists, accompanied by a DJ, will include art by Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro, and leading poster artist Jim “TAZ” Evans.
The art will be priced from $500 to $7,500, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Artists for Trauma, an arts organization for trauma victims. The organization will lead an Adaptive Painting Workshop on the day.
“We need to get our next generation away from technology and back to creativity as a means to rediscover love and self-healing. We are bringing back connections in the South Bay through creativity,” said Rafael McMaster, founder of Resin Gallery and Indivisible Arts.
Resin was the first gallery in the Cypress arts district. Since its opening six years ago, McMaster has advocated for greater community involvement in art through kids programs, including the award-winning Creative Wisdom classes, and youth camps.
A ‘Resin 2.0’ will be incorporated into the Friendship Campus for special needs students, which broke ground last Wednesday (see related story page 10).
Tickets for “Love South Bay Style” are $10 and available at IndivisibleArts.org. ER
