According to a Press Release that was sent to Pen Point News.
AMBIENCE is a celebration of the arts and entrepreneur. AMBIENCE features not 1, not 2, but SEVERAL different forms of art through various mediums. At AMBIENCE, one can experience live music, live painting, live graphic designing, spoken word, etc. The list goes on and on. This show is brought to you by BlackSmith. BlackSmith is a spoken word trio consisting of Benjamin Washington, Dexter Portalis, and Jalen Shelvin. The group met on the campus of UL-Lafayette and began to formulate themselves as BlackSmith in October of 2015. Since then, BlackSmith has evolved into a “machine of expression”.
AMBIENCE will be held Friday, October 27 at The Roux House in Downtown Baton Rouge at 143 3rd. St
. Doors open at 8pm
, with the first hour of the show highlighting the entrepreneurial component of AMBIENCE. We have vendors from all over the city ready and willing to serve you with the greatest products and services money can buy. These vendors have all put their heart, soul, and love into their products and services, so you can only expect the BEST of the BEST. Also, during that hour, we will have artists live painting pieces that will be up for sale at the show. Visual art has always been an avenue for creativity dating back to ancient Egyptian times. We want to celebrate that expression for all the world to see. Lastly, there will be LIVE GRAPHIC DESIGNING by one of BlackSmith’s own, Jalen Shelvin. This is something new to the community of live art and BlackSmith would like to pioneer that movement. The show will begin at 9pm
with Live Music and Spoken Word.
AMBIENCE is a celebration of the arts through community and love. This show will come at a discounted price to all teachers who attend. We, are nothing without education. We want to give back to the community in a positive way, while also stressing the importance of artistic expression in education. Hopefully, some of the teachers in attendance will be inspired to have a sense of urgency when it comes to the arts , in a predominately STEM based education system. Teachers will recieve a discount upon entry without a staff ID. That also goes for anyone who works inside of a school and isn’t a teacher (Para Professionals, Intervention Specialists, Disciplinarians, etc.).
So we invite you, your friend, and next of kin to come out and be apart of an amazing evening of art, community, and love. Come out and experience … AMBIENCE!
