Join Word is Art for the final month of The Word is ART, a unique coop artisan and gift gallery located at 9349 Venice Boulevard in downtown Culver City (Bagley and Venice Blvd). A series of upcoming featured artists windows, classes and events will showcase the diverse group of more than 25 artists and craftspeople of The Word is ART as we wrap up June with a final bang.

TJUNE-2014-WordisART-the-art-i-do-fronthe Word is ART’s popular series of workshops and events will close in June with:

Artist Event: “The Art I Do”
Featured Artist: Ruchika Sachdeva
Come to an evening of food, music and art!

Artist Event is on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Ruchika’s love of arts and crafts began when she was a child. Color, shape and form have always intrigued her. Colors talk to her and form plays in her mind and hands. She is a natural with the process of creation. But somehow she lost sight of it as she grew up and trained in Film and TV. She worked as a Journalist before moving to the US several years ago. Back at Penn State where her husband went to school, she started creating crafts again. Experimenting and playing around with materials such as sculpey, mod podge, acrylic and watercolor and more.

Today she does more than just one craft. She does jewelry, Recycled crafts, Paper Quilling, and Painting in oil and acrylic. This even showcases most of her works under one roof for the first time. Come to an evening of food, music, art! We will have body painting and henna tattoos. Enjoy the show!

An Exploration in Layers

JUNE-2014-WordisART-KellySaturday, June 14, 2014
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Instructor: Kelly Kilmer
Fee: $75

A message from Kelly: Peel back the layers and prepare to discover new possibilities on your pages. Learn how to use your art journal to experiment in a wide variety of techniques
that can be applied to any art form. Learn color, composition, design and more
as you fill your pages with unique expressions of your self.

My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies
including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens,
markers, tape and more. There is a small supply list below each class description.

After much deliberation and with sincere regrets, the month of June, 2014 will be our final month at The Word is ART Gallery. We have decided to close our doors for each artist to move on to greater horizons.

In honor of our final days, we will have a special sale at The Word is ART Gallery where each artist will have special discounts on their art. So, if you have been interested in purchasing a work of art from one of your favorite artists, or meeting them in person, now’s your final opportunity to do so. Better yet, with each purchase, you will receive a raffle ticket and a chance to win a fantastic work of art from one of our donating artists. All raffled art will be displayed at the gallery for your viewing. For each $25 purchase, you will receive one raffle ticket. We will be having our final farewell party where we will be choosing the winning tickets every ½ hour. So be sure to stop by and enjoy treats and refreshments as we toast each artist and their new horizons.
