A.O.K. (Art of Kraft) is a monthly showcase that hopes to serve as a vehicle to help connect local business owners with artists and other artist with each other. It is our goal to create a container that’s supports creativity and access to our diverse community. It is held at BIRBA in Uptown Palm Springs, made possible with the support of Qulture Qreative, and is curated by Sarah Scheideman of The Coachella Valley Art Scene.
This month we are really excited to bring the craft of iPhone art into the spotlight. We have been inspired by following Aaron Hansen (@aaronhansenistomorrowman), Rick Rodriguez (@ibelieveinfunk) and Steven Preston (@stevenbpreston) on Instagram. These three creatives have shown us that your cellular phone isn’t just a communication device and that Instagram isn’t the only place where your edited iPhone pix should live. From the screen of your phone to the palm of your hand, they’ve taken their everyday musings and made them into tangible pieces of art. Overall, we love the concept, but we love the quality of products they have came up with even more.
In AOK’s (Art of Kraft) third installment, last one of this season, we are excited to bring you a variety of local artists . Featuring new works from Maya Kalabic, Angela Kinley, Aaron Hansen, Rick Rodriguez, Steven Preston, Cakefetti, and Wane Kan. We are looking forward to getting picked up for another season! To make this happen please come out and support – art, crafts, drinks and great food abound. Looking forward to seeing you there.
