Featured Artist this week- DEADBEAT MUSIC ARTWORK

So, it is Tuesday at Femilia, which means we have just had our latest art installment by the wonderful, Michele Crimi, who by far extends her appreciation of music to more than listening.  She has recycled used and broken musical instruments into works of art like wall hanging pieces, to freelance music catichers.  Not only does she create these beautiful pieces of work, but she rescues these instruments from musicians and around the area of Detroit.

Her work will be available to view all week at the Showroom, and you have the chance to meet the Artist herself at the Artist Reception held here on Thursday from 6-9. Come join us and learn more about the whereabouts Miss Michele has picked up some of her instruments, which I am sure you would want to know.

This past weekend's event was a hit!! We had so many people there backstage and front in the crowd, from supports in the community, panel attendees, and last but not least, the press! It was really great to see everyone out with their ears and eyes focued on the discussion, the fashion shows and the networking opportunities everyone seemed to find.

CHUCKs with FEMILIA SPUNK & Our first Artist Reception Opening

 What would you do if 944 Magazine and Karmanos Cancer Institute 
asked you to give a new life to an old plain version of chuck's?!  Well, Femilia added its own flare to these with tulle ruffles and basket weaved laces.  So our efforts definitely were noticed and here are some snap shots of 944's eye candy event at the CCS Taubman Center in New Center Park Detroit.  The nights was a blast, the other chucks were amazing all different in their own ways.  We were thrilled to be apart of this and showcase our work, all for a great cause.
So next on the Femilia Agenda, is the Artist Reception for Rebecca Goldberg.  This Thursday evening, we are toasting to a local Graphic Artist, whose work highlights all things remarkable about Detroit.  From Local Industry to the main stream well known labels of Detroit, she is a visionary of color and balance, and it shows in her work.  Come out this Thursday evening, from 6 to 9 pm, and see for yourself.  Ciao!
