July art show: Its Time To Wake Up: Dear Humans by artist Bridget Ahearn. " Its time to wake up is a series meant to illustrate this current revolutionary moment in time. Inspired by the BLM protest and the feeling of people around the world being consciously awakened. I hope to inspire empathy and action from the viewer." @old_crow_
" My name Bridget Ahearn. I'm a St. Pete artist. I paint to express my views on spirituality, feminism, human rights, astrological & esoteric concepts, and love. I hope to connect with the viewer through honest and simple statements, while drawing them in with a vibrant color palette."
This is our salon. We like to keep it small, and intimate, and that was before the pandemic. Now, it's a necessity. I was unsure how things were going to work, there was so much unknown about the transmission. As the months have progressed, we seem to be making it work. We are thankful that brands like Framar and O Way had sustainable options in place for single use protective garments and towels. All of our single use items are biodegradable and we started composting! Ericka Leigh joined our team in more of a full time capacity, and is overseeing our compost and recycling.
It has been of the utmost importance to us that we are able to maintain our environmental mission, while keeping our staff and clients as safe as possible.
The strange part is, it's starting to feel a bit normal. Turning on the HEPA filters along with the lights, everything in the UV sanitizer, and spraying down everyone who comes through the door. The great thing is, I feel safe. I feel like I'm keeping my clients safe. Let's all just try to do our best, and keep doing it. Stay vigilant!
