Love and Family on Father’s Day

This post comes from Erica Davis, a painter who showed at our recent Father’s Day event at the Egg & I.

Last Saturday night Art Love Magic hosted a show at the Egg and I restaurant in Addison. The atmosphere was full of art…love…and magic (what a fitting name for the nonprofit). True to the spirit of the organization, all of the artists (visual, poetic, graphic, music, culinary, etc.) joined together to share their talents with the DFW community honoring fathers for the holiday.

Matt Barron set the tone with passionate pieces on guitar. Serena Wills (poet and soror) stirred audience members to tears with her spoken word piece, “His Voice”. Jay Bookworm pulled back the petals of the heart and soul to reveal the depths to which fatherly love can go. Miss Deb stood atop a chair and stunned the room silent in awe as she belted a powerful a capella selection to close the night.

As music played, paint/air brushes danced across canvas, balls of clay were transformed into original artistic pottery and the guests dined on some of the MOST amazing cuisine to hit the North Dallas area…people were changed. Life and art intersected in a way that the founders of this organization dreamed and saw manifested. One night. Many ARTists. Lots of LOVE and lots of MAGIC.

I feel blessed to have been a part of it.
