I am a former dance teacher and choreographer, born and raised in Fresno. I have recently opened Jia Salon and Spa in Northeast Fresno. While this may seem an unlikely art venue, what makes Jia different is that the walls are covered with art provided by local artists. Each piece placed in my salon is available for purchase and all clients walking through the door are made aware of this as well as the need to support the arts in our community.
I also exhibit art in the form of local clothing and jewelry makers' work as well as inviting local musicians and poets to perform at Jia for events.
I would be very interested in hosting for Art Hop and/or other artistic events. Please let me know if you have ideas or a need for a venue.
Support For All Art Forms
I was wondering if you would be interested in putting in a preshow appliction for the festival this summer. We are looking for local acts to fill a 30min slot before each of our performances (60 in all) It's a free show but is an excellent way to get your name/business out there.
Dear Cyndi,Dec 6 Maria Contreras is going to host a wonderful Winter Wonderland Fine Art Show at the Washington Square Shopping center right across from your beautiful Salon.I think it would be in your best interest to go and meet some of the valley"s best artist,and let them know that you support their endeavors,and try to get a chance to meet Maria the best promoter of fine art in the valley ,she's also the kindest person you would ever meet.Also ,can I recommend two valley websites, mind.hub.org thier mission is to create on online community that encourages and supports the creative professionals in the central valley.and Fresnoarts.org they have a database of thousands of artlovers and Maria Franco,the director would be more than happy to help you promote your vision.Best of all this is all free networking.Just some ideas ,Your freind Andy
I think your salon is a perfect venue for creative expression,it brings "energy" to creative minded people,and I salute you for supporting the arts.And I must say you have the most beautiful salon in the whole valley.
