Maui, Hawaii (April 11, 1999) -- Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Uniques Services today announced a series of happenings to facilitate the expression of artists desiring to interactively present their work to a live and cyberspace audience in a high-touch, high tech environment. This first of many V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink Artists Showcase and Networking events on Maui, is designed to entertain and inspire audiences, provide a support system for artists, and demonstrate a "New School for the Next Millennium;" a community communications/synergy center being created in Wailuku at 2024 Main Street. Join us on May 7th at 7pm for our inagural show. Dancing will follow!
All analog and digital artists, photographers, performers and techno-shamans are invited to bring and present their work (slides, video, digitally and/or in performance) on a large theatre screen to an audience encouraged to share impressions, feeling, questions, and information. Different styles of art are welcome; airbrush art, costume design, fine art, computer graphics, web design, virtual worlds, etc.. The only limitation being the stretch of one's imagination. Images and performances are the catalyst for group interaction. Afterwards people are encouraged to mingle and get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served. Live music for dancing follows the Showcase and will be provided by Peter Rosen and Born of Friendship. A $15 donation at the door is requested. A $10 discount is offered to musicians bringing instruments to play in the open jam session/sing-a-long at 7pm, as well as to artists bringing portfolios, videos, slides or computer graphic data to project on the BIG SCREEN. The Showcase starts promptly at 7:45 pm at the Maui Metropolitan Museum (Creativity Cafe for-a-day), and will be "broadcast" on the Internet. Reserve your spot now to participate in presenting your art! For details and discounts call: 808-573-4188, or visit Creativity Cafe's web site: http://creativity.net. Join in the fun at the highest bandwidth...reach out and touch someone! Additional show dates are May 17, and June 4. According to Peter H. Rosen founder of Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services -- (V.A.R.I.O.U.S., a 501-c-3 non-profit) producer of the event along with community volunteers, "City life has a tendency to alienate people. Visual and other artists, by the nature of their work, are typically a solitary and introspective group of people. They spend countless hours alone contemplating Self and the human condition while perfecting their craft... often at the expense of a normal social life." V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media Ink is designed to provide a safe place to meet and enjoy each others creativity in an informal and supportive atmosphere where, "Strangers are just friends who haven't yet met. We invite art lovers to experience all forms of creativity, especially innovation by those on the cutting edge of art and technology," Rosen adds. V.A.R.I.O.U.S Media Ink was founded in 1980 to serve the community and attract energy to build Creativity Cafe; an Artists Resource Center featuring educational entertainment, digital storytelling technology, internet access, a computerized resource referral and information directory, a job bank, synergy/networking areas, a multimedia performance and broadcast venue, production spaces, and a computerized image storage and retrieval system to make artists' work available worldwide. #### CONTACTS: Peter H.
