With so many schools diminishing (or eliminating) art programs, it’s more important than ever to find ways to inspire our youth to think creatively and learn new ways to express themselves positively!

Friday April 13th
Art & Coffee: Superstition!

7:30 – 10:30pm at Buzzbrews Deep Ellum (2801 Commerce in Dallas)

Art & Coffee is back with a awesome FRIDAY THE 13th show!

You probably already know it’s bad luck to walk under a ladder or open an umbrella inside. But did you know you should never change your sheets on a Friday, and that you should never, ever sit down to dinner at a table with a party of thirteen? (Unless, of course, what you want is nightmares and an untimely demise.)

Come out Friday, April 13th to the unluckiest Art & Coffee of them all and explore friggatriskaidekaphobia, (the fear of Friday the 13th,) and other silly superstitions with some of Dallas’ more unusual artists:

Kelsey Kincannon
Ixchel Aguilar
Brandy Collins
Becky Taylor
Cori Berg
David Jessup
And more TBA

Featured Poet:
Victory

Open Mic: Musicians and poets are welcome to sign up to perform on stage. Sign up begins at 7 p.m. sharp (usually filled with 20 minutes).

This is a free event. All ages. Cameras and sketchbooks welcome.

Produced by Breonny Lee and Brian Alguire

More Art & Coffee (March 2012) photos from Kelly Underwood

Posted in Artists, Community, Deep Ellum, photography, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2012 by artlovemagic

Kelly Underwood, who set up as an illustrator in our latest coffee show, also brought her camera with her and snapped some beautiful pics of the event. The comments below each are from the event’s producer, Michael Lagocki. Enjoy!

This was actually our first Art & Coffee in quite a few months. The show had grown insanely popular last year, but when the location that hosted it unexpectedly closed down we decided to take the winter off and find a new home in spring.

That place turned out to be Buzzbrews in Deep Ellum. Wow. The space and staff vibe are perfect for what we want to accomplish with this show. Spacious, friendly, and open to doing crazy creative things. I’m excited about how Art & Coffee, which is monthly, will grow here.

Local songwriter Eric Tipton was a guest on the national TV show THE VOICE just days before being the feature musician at the show! Eric’s a friend, a great guy, and an amazing performer. It was a blessing to be able to have him at the show.

…as it was to have the Just.Us.League. They’re a live collaborative painting crew that does monthly jams all over Dallas. For Art & Coffee, their founder Jerod Alexander sketched out a large Alice In Wonderland Tea Party on an 8 ft canvas and let the audience go at it. Yeah.

Outside the front door, poet Amberly Russell and airbrush painter Eddie Walker presented a unique collaboration. Eddie’s been illustrating several of Amberly’s poems, adding a new dimension to the words. Amberly even mounted an Ipod and headphones outside so audience members could hear the poems as they watched Eddie paint.

I love it when we really have a variety of artforms at the show. Artist Leighton Autrey brought a scratchboard to his first Art & Coffee. He used an exacto knife to “carve” an image out of the black background as he met and talked to audience members.

It’s always good to have Kylun Rodriguez in the house. He’s the son of my founding partner, David Rodriguez, and is the youngest producer on the ArtLoveMagic roster. I’m secretly hoping he becomes a lead producer this year and runs his own show sometime.

A huge part of the success of Art & Coffee is not just the feature artists, but the open mic, where audience members can perform. I believe we give young musicians and writers a strong opportunity to grow in their skills. Many local performers who now gig regularly got their start at an Art & Coffee open mic.

Thanks, Kelly for taking the photos! And thanks for sharing your art with us.

The next Art & Coffee show will be at Buzzbrews (Deep Ellum) on Friday, April 13th at 7:30pm. The show is free to attend and all ages are welcome. See you there!

Davies Brothers – Mavs Championship Mural

Posted in Artists, Community, Deep Ellum with tags , , , , , on December 4, 2011 by artlovemagic

post and photos by Michael Lagocki

I was lucky to be able to watch the creation of a new Deep Ellum mural honoring the Mavericks Championship. The piece was done by the Davies Brothers (Jashua, Jerod and Isaac) who are regular collaborators of ArtLoveMagic and among the city’s best muralists. Here are some of the photos I snapped while they were painting.

To get a look at the final piece with your own eyes, swing by the corner of Taylor and Malcolm X in Deep Ellum (right across from the Mokah Lounge). You’ll be glad you did.
