|MASH Gallery and St. Jude Children's Hospital Display Water as the Way, at the newest exhibition SACRED WATERS|
Contemporary abstract artist and founder of MASH Gallery Haleh Mashian hosted an exhibit for her newest series, SACRED WATERS, at MASH Gallery in the Arts District, in downtown Los Angeles. This was a small event where guests were asked to help donate all charitable contributions to St. Jude.
The purpose of SACRED WATERS at MASH Gallery was to raise money for St Jude Children's Hospital. It was a way to get local celebrities, including pop artists, actors, and actresses in the LA area, involved and able to tap into their energies when it comes to water.
Haleh Mashian invited a number of public figures from diverse backgrounds of artistic expression to foster creative discussions among like-minded individuals. Among them were writer, actress, model, and motivational speaker Monti Washington, pop artist Vanessa Bejine, high fashion model Verina Marcel, and actress Marietta Melrose. Joining them on the red carpet were musical connoisseurs Kevin Posey and Rudolph Nobles, a producer and singer duo that dazzled the red carpet in Posey's casual black suit and jean combo and Nobles' sleek navy ensemble. The two posed alongside Haleh Mashian, whose metallic silver 'feather effect tunic and zebra print leather pants paralleled the creative expression and artistic qualities of the evening's exhibition.
Other guests, like actor Danny Plom, opted for casual chic, donning a black hoodie and matching slacks that spoke to the effortless ensembles of his west coast roots. Taking a bolder, fashion-forward approach, model Haruko Nishida took the red carpet in a pastel dotted sheer top and leather shorts - her features fierce and striking, crimson lips contrasting the black pieces she wore. On a softer note, actress Allie Davis posed in a delicate white mini with puffed sleeves and a sweetheart neckline, standing out against the cool chromatic colors of the art pieces she stood against.
The evening's exhibition was flawless. Mashian facilitated an atmosphere of individuality, excitement, and creativity among a backdrop of enthusiastic murmurs and reactions to the Sacred Water art pieces that embellished the walls of MASH Gallery. Better was the noble pursuit behind the exhibition - fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, to which 20% of the event's proceeds would be donated.
Haleh Mashian has dedicated over 20 years to her passion for art, and it is a way of making her feel unique with anything that she puts her mind to. She can tap into her energy of creating and destroying just as water would do. Revealing the very physicality and opposing forces in water are ways that she can start her pieces.
This line explores themes of the ever-changing movement and flow of water in a way that we can incorporate into our personal lives. "Each waterscape reveals the very physicality and opposing forces in water: its torrents and stillness, its ebbs and flows, its shimmer and depth, it's roughness and ripples," says Mashian.
The atmosphere during the Sacred Waters Red Carpet Opening was calm, following and cleansing just as any flow of water would be. Mashian makes sure to connect the adaptability of water as the key to maintaining our composure and equilibrium given the long pandemic and the state of the world. Water is the way.
Mashian can connect water with the long pandemic and the state of the world; it is a way of bringing peace back into our lives after everything that we have been through this past year and a half. When looking at her pieces, she wants you to think about all the peace that the world needs and make sure that you are relaxed and in a peaceful state of mind while looking at her art.
"Water is portrayed as a cleansing, an immersive substance that both washes away our detritus and calms our senses with its rejuvenating and constant momentum. In this way, water is both substance and solution—that which carries and cleanses the body and soul," describes Mashian.
The art presented throughout the gallery had a sense of relief when you looked at it, and the event turned out to be a success. Everyone who attended the event stated how everything was perfect and how everything flowed together, sort of how water does. We were able to reach our goal of donating 20% of all proceeds to St Jude, which was the reasoning behind all of it.
This is an event that we want to continue to have at least once a year. The outcome was a success, and everyone had a fantastic time and was able to take advantage of how calm and peaceful the event was. A state of creative release is something that Mashian likes, so go by and follow-through and the guests were able to do the same.
