with Kara Hoblin
Thursday, December 20 | 6-8 PM | FREE
Join North Fork chalk artist Kara Hoblin on Thursday December 20th from 6-8 pm to wipe away many of her large chalk drawings as a tool to let go of attachments from the past, present, and future. The 3rd BIG ERASE invites all participants to come with an open heart and mind to the power art has to heal and build compassionate relationships in modern society. All chalkboards will also be available for participants to make their own chalk creations inspired by something they would like to let go of. Then all chalk drawings will be ceremoniously wiped clean during “The Big Erase”, including live music by Julia King and refreshments.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Kara finds inspiration in the emotional intricacies of the human psyche. She created “The Art of Letting Go,” an interactive chalkboard based art show that encouraged all the participants and viewers to erase her work alongside her. “Chalk came into my life when I needed to learn a very important life lesson, how to let go. It’s always astonishing and amazing to me that if you allow yourself to be open to change… when one door closes another opens. Letting go as cliche as it sounds is one of the most important lessons we can learn. Chalk provided me with that outlet, as an artist to let go of my work, as a lover to let go of heartache, as a human to let go of insecurity, loss, hate, pain, etc. And that doesn’t mean throwing them away or discarding those emotions, it simply means letting life BE. Taking all of those emotions and instances, growing from them moving forward into the light and out of the shadows.”
