Sādhanā (sa-dha-na) is the link between the beginning and the end. This Friday, our good friends at Hold Fast Studio will be showcasing collective art pieces of their interpretation of sādhanā, reflecting the insight of their practice and patience from receiving and making a tattoo. Music will be provided by Dj Shea Butter.
Presenting new works by San Jose's School of Visual Philosophy, a haven for traditional printmaking, sculpture, metal smithing, and jewelry making.
Members of the school will be outside Petite Galleria doing live art.
"Tanabata" is known as the "Star Festival" in Japan. Celebrated during the 7th month (and often coinciding with Obon), people are encouraged to write their wishes on slips of paper, and hang them on bamboo Tanabata trees.
In celebration of the Jtown ArtWalk, we invite everyone to stop by Roy's Station, where wishes can be written on slips of paper, and hung on a Tanabata Tree. Origami paper will also be available to fold paper cranes for wishes of peace, which can also be added to the tree.
