Opening reception and classes

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Felena Hanson | Meaning and MetaphorSan Diego, Calif. – January 10, 2013.  Hera Hub regularly supports and displays art from San Diego locals, the current exhibit being from long-time activist, Kira Carrillo Corser.  She has 30 years of experience as an artist and has used her works to help spread awareness on social issues including, addiction, immigration, and homelessness.  She’s been collaborating with non-profit organizations, both local and national, as well as coalitions, universities and legislators for 15 years.  Kira’s visuals advocate for social equality and intend to educate people so that they may be motivated to become more involved within their community.  Kira believes “art creates bridges, promotes solutions, connects communities” and reflects these believes on her pieces which are made using a variety of methods such as photography, silk, pencils, pastels and ink.

The opening reception will take place on January 18th from 5:00pm-7:30pm at Hera Hub in Sorrento Mesa, 9710 Scranton Road, #160 San Diego 92121.  The event is open to the public and includes snacks and wine.  Her art will be for sale, and can continue to be viewed Monday through Friday, 9-5 pm until the end of March.  Learn more at www.kiracorser.com.

Following the opening of the art show, Kira will be teaching a “Painterly Photography” class on February 10, 10:00-1:00 pm an “Easy Silk Scarf Painting” workshop on January 27, 10:00-4:00 pm.  For registration and additional information contact Kiracorser@gmail.com
