LOOK FOR THE RED BIN AT
Continuing throughout the summer local businesses and galleries will be uniting through a common cause to raise art supplies for TCP's Community Arts Program (CAP) outreach initiatives. CAP's focus is on mentoring "at-risk" youth through the arts. CAP's upcoming outreach will target programs that may not have arts education, and that struggle with resources.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE, GET INVOLVED
While living in South Korea, Brandon Sadler was consumed by an unfamiliar environment struggling to find a balance between work and artistic expression. With Sadler’s grandfather passing and his isolation from living abroad he was motivated to create his most recent body of work, “Red Lotus: The Floating World.”
By utilizing rice paper for its sensitivity and ink for its permanence, Sadler has created a metaphor for life and its actions. Through this unification of these materials, “Red Lotus: The Floating World” articulates his ideas about the change and death of self-image that is essential for enlightenment and the finding of one’s true self.
“When your world is consumed by waves, you can sink or you can float.” – Brandon Sadler
