Color Me Mine

Will be featuring the musical stylings of Ariana Jadin. Ariana provided the following info about herself.

My name is Ariana Jadin, I have been playing guitar since I was 9, singing ever since I could and I've been writing music since I was 11 years old and I've been playing gigs since I was 13.  I love guitar and I am deeply passionate about music. I love writing about love, beauty, and the pains of life.  I lean towards more of a country sound but I like playing all kinds of music.  I play a lot of covers and some of my originals, I'm always up for learning new songs and adding to my playlist.  I came out with a cd, which are all my originals, in December of 2016, and it’s on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and CD Baby. I find words extremely powerful and think it’s amazing to touch people’s hearts with song.

Color Me Mine is located at 188 25th St, Ogden

Ogden’s Platforms-

  In support of the Letterworks International Lettering Arts Conference, O1ARTS is pleased to present a unique multi-disciplinary arts experience, CALLIGRAFFITI:

Poetry by Ogden-area poets will be transcribed by street artists Josh Pohlman and Jeremy Little and displayed at PLATFORMS.

Calligraffiti is an art form that combines calligraphy, typography, and graffiti. It can be classified as both abstract expressionism and abstract vandalism.

Calligraffiti can be defined as a visual art that attempts to communicate a larger message through writing that has been aesthetically altered in the effort of moving beyond the literal meaning. Simply put, it is the conscious effort of making a word or group of words into a visual composition. As such it is meant to be both an aesthetic experience and provocative art—mixing tradition and precision with modern unbridled self-expression. - Wikipedia

From Lead artist Josh Pohlman:

"My objective for the project at PLATFORMS is to cultivate the ingenuitive DIY style of various graffiti writers from the Ogden area to delve into an immersive new style dubbed "calligraffiti", which blurs the lines between elegant flowing complex letter structures of calligraphy and the playful Bubbly Lettering of graffiti using a broad array of different mediums from pen and ink to decoupage and aerosol paint.

I'd like to present the viewers with a series of pieces that challenge their views of what has been a somewhat taboo art culture: graffiti."

Platforms is located on the corner of Adams Ave and 25th Street.

The Local Artisan Collective-

Featured Artist: Al Perry

My love is photography… Having said that, I spent 40 years working on robots. (I am 70 and still do a few projects for my old company). I am presently retired, 8 years ago. During the course of my life I have traveled to and lived in many countries. During high school, I spent 2 summers working in Yellowstone. When I graduated, I joined the air force and spent 2 years in Vietnam. I have worked in Australia, England, France, Germany, South America, Taiwan, and several other countries. I lived in D.C. for a year and loved the Smithsonian museums. I have worked in 47 states.

My photography is done on a Nikon digital. I do some trains, cars, scenics, buildings, planes, animals, etc. When I travel I usually have my camera with me. Although most of my travel involves working on robots, when I get done, I try to go to some of the local spots. For instance, in North Carolina, they have the Blue Ridge, car museums, waterfalls, beach, etc.
