Collaborative Art Space

GEZELLIG:  a dutch word which has no English equivalent, but connotes a quaint, fun or cozy atmosphere, but also belonging, time spent with loved ones or a general sense of togetherness.

My youngest sibling, Trey, honored me by visiting for 2 weeks of his winter break from the Savannah College of Art and Design. On the last night of our art filled, whirlwind time together I dragged him to the Gezellig. Honestly, I was stoked that he wanted to come with me and more stoked that he let me dress him up into a Gypsy! As the only vegetarian in my family, I was also shocked that he was open to trying the vegan menu… none of my other siblings would have been so adventurous. This was truly the most magical way to end his visit.

In general, there was a wide variety of people in attendance and several people I had been wanting to meet. In this intimate setting, it is easy to create new relationships.

Rochester has been in dire need of a space and an event like this for years and I am honored to have been in attendance of such a dynamic experience. When I went to bed that night, I could still hear the music in my ears and see the talented artists in my head.

It will be impossible to use words to describe the evening, so I’ll just let the images give you a sense of what it was like to be there.
