Karen + Christian James. From the beginning, they were all about their love, starting their life together, their faith and their family. Their wedding had to have two additional passions, art and dancing. Their perfect day came together at the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center. They pledged their love and fidelity surrounded by friends, history, art, music and loved ones. Then they danced until their DJ left. Heres to you Karen and Christian. We’ll never forget such an amazing day and we’ll definitely will never forget the Converse.
It seems all summer I’ve been dancing a somewhat fun, but complicated dance with my business and art. I’ve been balancing wedding photography and art openings and my own personal development with family, friends and sanity. I had a successful show, Body Politic I, at the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center that ran from July through mid September. As a proud affiliate of The Black Male Identity Project, I received a grant from Baltimore Office Promotion of the Arts to present this show and programming for Free Fall Baltimore 2011.
I will have a month of programming for the month of October at the Station North Arts Cafe, located at 1816 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD. Please come support Free Fall Baltimore, Station North Arts and me if you are so inclined.
