Houston, TX (May 17, 2018) – To unite the greater Houston area community on the issue of global environmental justice, the Rothko Chapelwill host a group meditation on World Environment Day, Tuesday, June 5, from 6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. beginning inside the chapel and ending outside by the reflecting pool.  Images of water brought by participants will be placed inside a circle created with the Rothko Chapel benches.  Gulf Coast residents have a complicated relationship with water. Even though it is a source of life, livelihood, and recreation for our many residents, water becomes a wrathful force in the forms of hurricanes, tropical storms, and flooding waters. This tension will be examined during the meditation and in the post meditation conversation.    The program will begin with a welcome from David Leslie, Rothko Chapel Executive Director, then poet Martha Serpas will share one of her works to set the intention for a 25-minute guided meditation. At the conclusion of the meditation, there will be a period of reflection and sharing from participants. The event will close with another short poem to seal the practice and the community offering of meditation for the environment.  The Chapel will remain open for reflection until 7:30 P.M. that evening.  The World Environment Day meditation is a pay-what-you-can program with a suggested donation of $15.00 per person. Rothko Chapel is located in the heart of the Montrose at 3900 Yupon at Sul Ross Street, Houston, TX 77006.   About Rothko Chapel The Rothko Chapel is open to the public every day of the year at no charge. It is a contemplative space that successfully interconnects art, spirituality, and compassionate action through a broad array of free public programs.  Founded by Houston philanthropists Dominique and John de Menil, the Chapel was dedicated in 1971 as an intimate sanctuary.  Today it stands as a monument to art, spirituality, and human rights. As an independent non-profit, non-governmental organization, the Chapel depends on contributions from foundations and individuals to support its mission of creating a space for contemplation and dialogue on important issues.

Black, White & Between

http://www.jomarvisions.com/black-white-and-between

At JoMar Visions we are exploring again the theme of black and white and all shades in between. It could be a pencil or ink drawing, monochrome painting, a sculpture, jewelry or black and white photography. 

Emphasis is also given to the shades of grey that exist between the two extremes. Without the color, it’s all about the form; the shapes of your designs will take on a new significance and the viewers will see them as they are, unshrouded.  

There will also be a silent auction where 100% will go towards flood relief and you can benefit your favorite charity right there on the spot. 

There will be live music, bites and drinks and this event is in conjunction with JoMar Visions Third Saturday open Studios.
