What GOOD happened recently? Ann Marie Cash Levasseur -St. Pete Buzz-7/15/16

breaking-news-1013tm-pic-2121Athletes, Entertainers, Famous people in general are RISING to the occasion.  Today on the Today Show , Katy Perry took time out of her busy creative schedule and Teleconferenced with the world.  She stood up and had her voice heard via a powerful creative way, her music.

Her effort could have been misunderstood, however her sincerity shined through. It was heart felt.  For the record I was NOT a Katy Perry fan, until #TODAY.  I liked a few of her songs, and that was it.  Today a new wave of GOOD has been released.

INSPIRE to RISE & UNITE!  That was Katy Perry’s message today on the Today show.  TODAY is the best day to start proactively contributing to positive, meaningful change.

There is no good that does not get challenged by bad.  The News we all woke up to in the USA this morning/the world, was horrifying and pure evil. Innocent lives GONE! DEATH ONLY HAS ONE COLOR!

Today I choose to Inspire from a positive productive place & Rise. I want to connect with those that choose the same and UNITE. Through this Virtual technology world we can make this happen quickly.

Share stories, jokes that provoke a positive sympathetic & empathetic emotion.

WE NEED TO UNITE and overcome our differences in a mindful way!

Steven Kenny on Connect The Dots

Steven Kenny on Connect The Dots, with Ann Marie. This show is about people empowering people preferably through the arts. Listen to the podcast to get a closer perspective of Steven Kenny The Artist.

Steven KennyMy paintings most often focus on the human figure paired with elements found in nature. steven Kenny clown fishThese surreal, symbolic juxtapositions are intended to work on at least two levels.
Queen Bird yellow steven KennyThe first alludes to the fact that we are an integral part of the natural world and subject to its laws. This seems like an obvious statement until we step back and objectively assess our symbiotic relationship with each other and the Earth. Depending on your perspective, these relationships fall somewhere on the scale between harmonious and dysfunctional.
The second turns the lens around to look inward upon the stewardship of our own emotional, intellectual and psychological landscapes. The same pictorial subject matter allows me to make references to our individual journeys of self-exploration and discovery. Again, depending on who is holding the compass, we are either lost or on the right path.
At the very least, I desire to create images of beauty and mystery that allow the viewer to find their own personal significance in them.

The Exquisite Corpse Int’l 2015 ART Game Changed “The Game”

St. Petersburg, Fl St, Pete Buzz Nov.16-2015

16450 - Exquisite Corpse - Program - PROOF-4_Page_01The Exquisite Corpse Int’l 2015 art game, changed the game alright. On Thursday November 12, 2015, the unveiling of the exhibit “Parade of Corpses” was beyond everybody’s expectations, at the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts.

The first ECI game  started with the bar elevated pretty high. In order for artist to participate in the game, they had to be invited. Chosen. Criteria #1 was attitude.They needed to be able to have fun while creating their piece. Criteria #2 Talent, be completely devoted to their craft. The ECI 2015 first 3D- 2D game started with an extremely talented list of participating artist. It  will be interesting to see how the game progresses during years to come. It is a very hard act to follow.

It was a magical night. Many dots connected at a very high frequency. Creativity was flowing all around The St. Petersburg Museum of Fine arts. Music, Art ,food, drinks , artists, friends, Priceless.

The Parade of Corpses is an art exhibit created by the outcome of a game. It will travel. Currently the board is working on confirming the 2015-2016 tour to museums & galleries around the State, Nation, world.

I was fortunate to have participated in the game. Since the games art exhibit unveiling, it feels like I have been playing my own cardboard version of Jumanji game in real life. Amazing moments.

Friday Glow glass art experience at The Morean Hot shop.  Saturday , sculpture art show at Bloom, Art exhibit at The Morean arts center, Sunday Exposure art exhibit brunch, at the Morean  Clay center. Collaborations were great and it shined through the art work. The “Exposure” art exhibit was produced by Cindy Stovall. Congratulations is in order to all  involved.

Today it feels as if I have broken the code and have elevated MY Game to “The matrix” level.  The game has many layers and are unfolding and revealing themselves very quickly. The game is designed  to stimulate the mind through art.

Last but not least someone mentioned  what was accomplished on a shoe string budget. Exquisite Corpse International may have not had much funding however people from the community showed up and collaborated as well.  Justin Mullally filmmaker, Britanny Rebic photographer , Steve Coderre Real Estate Broker and Danielle Findley Florida Print Solutions to mention a few.

The event was a sequence of serendipity moments that turned into a fireball of phenomenal creative energy.

The above video is the ECI introduction documentary that was shown at the unveiling to help people understand what was going on. The short introduction documentary, was introduced by Mark Mitchell’s band live performance ,who wrote a song for the Exquisite Corpse  2015 game.  Mark Mitchell also  participated in the 2D portion of the game.

Oh what a night! The game continues to unfold so stay tuned. . . . . . .

Barbara Saber in her words “My world view is very energy based. I see things through the lens of energy flow, energy distortions and energy interactions. Energy is the foundation of everything If you understand what is happening inside & outside of yourself, from that perspective it makes things less personal and breaks it down into a non judgmental system”.
