is this week….along with Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent…..and thus this quote about hope and renewal:
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
But a little gold and glitter in the middle of February is more than welcome….
Last Sunday Feb 12, 2012 (2-12-2012) was a serendipitous date for 212 Art Center. The occasion was marked with a party….the “Arti Gras”! We enjoyed great food, danced, and appropriately acted silly….I came home with beads! (No flashing required!)
Many came embellished:
And most of us took advantage of the photo booth filled with props:
Or had our face painted:
We learned to two-step to the beat of Cajun music…and had jambalaya, sushi and other delicious morsels.
Two Twelve Art Center is a community, a village of like-minded souls. And on this night we celebrated this community, the friendships and the generous spirit that is the heart of Two Twelve Arts.
