Something Fun to Do Next Thursday

kearntree2.jpgNext Thursday, January 17, is my birthday. I have fun plans. But if I didn’t, I would definitely attend “Your Element,” a funky art party happening at f.i.g. Full disclosure: It’s a D Magazine event. But our parties are always a blast, so that’s a good thing. Anyway, four local artists (Frankie Garcia III, Mikki Mallow, Bob Poe, and Zach Saucedo) will be displaying their works in individual studios, and then each one will auction off one item themed after earth, wind, fire, or water. (I like the one at the left. It’s called “P.E.A.C.E.- Silver(K)” by Saucedo). Proceeds benefit The Fashionistas, so guys, you know there will be hot chicks there too. Jump for all the details, and for tickets go to

D Magazine will host a unique event, “Your Element,” boasting art, fashion, music, food, and drink on Thursday, January 17, 2008, from 7 until 10 p.m. at f.i.g. (1807 Ross Ave.).

Local artists Frankie Garcia III, Mikki Mallow, Bob Poe, and Zach Saucedo showcase between eight and ten of their artworks in individual studios. Each artist will auction off one piece themed after earth, wind, fire, or water. An additional piece that all one four artists created together that incorporates all four elements will also be available at auction. Ticket proceeds, 20 percent from art work sales, and 100 percent of the element pieces will benefit THE FASHIONISTAS.

Up-and-comer student fashion designers Jonathan Aparicio, Taryn Hatcher, Kristin Hennessy, and Kahn Nguyen from the University of North Texas will also be in attendance. Their creations reflect each element thanks to direction from creative director Leary Forteau.

Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased at

    the show was well put together. Very nice atmosphere. why and how did they choose those four so called artist? the designers did a great job. It was good concept, but nobody made a penny from it. Who is the genious behind this concept?

  3. carrie says:

    what was the point of this “show”? who made profit from a bunch of dallas folks dressing like it was summer time?

  4. Jason says:

    So a group of people decided to come together to try and start something new that can end up being amazing and you choose to bash them. I’m glad other people haven’t just given up when people have tried to knock down their ideas or our world we be an entirely different place. Every event has to have a beginning, and this was theirs. Obviously, you people have planned a brand new event from start to finish and have had it go exactly as planned the first year. Dream on. Thanks to everyone who put their time and effort into the event. Most of us really enjoyed it!

    And to the artist, well done. As far as where are the real artist? If you didn’t see any piece there that you would call art, then you didn’t belong there anyways.
