RAW’s Mission 

To serve independent artists with tools, resources, education and exposure needed to thrive and succeed in their creative careers.

RAW showcases indie talent in visual art, film, fashion & accessories design, music, performance art, beauty, and photography.

RAW is a fun and alternative way for creatives to showcase both to their local community and the world-at-large.

We are not your average art show. We are loud, colorful, creative, and all about our artists. We are RAW.

Red Shoes is my Debut One Woman Show

Red Shoes is the first solo show written, produced and performed by local Boulder artist Khiri Lee. Inspired by fairy tales such as “The Devil’s Red Shoes” and “The Wizard of Oz,” this multimedia performance riffs and coalesces into a poetic journey of losing oneself, to finding personal power, to diving deeply into creative freedom. The show magically weaves dance, improvisational theatre, video, poetry, and music, showcasing the wide variety of creative practices Khiri explores in her artistic process. Like a collage, each vignette creates unexpected connections and new thoughts around womanhood, freedom, individuality, fairytales, loss, cultural expectations, and red shoes. Khiri’s work is heavily influenced by her time as an arts educator, belly dancer, and mixed media painter. Learn more about Khiri at khirilee.com or on instagram and twitter @magick_socks. RSVP on Facebook.

The Boulder Fringe Festival

FringeSLogo_Wide

The Boulder Fringe provides a platform for artists to showcase their artwork often in non-traditional spaces. We educate about independent art that is accessible, and affordable. We present a year round way of life capped by an annual 12-day performance art festival, that brings together local, national, and international shows and other events in Boulder.

March Meet the Maker

I stumbled across the March Meet the Maker at the tail end of last years challenge  and I’m excited to have been participating from the beginning this year. Everyday for the month of March you can tune into my Instagram page, @magick_socks, for insights into my artistic practice. And its also been a fun and interesting way to engage with other artists all over the world and see what makes them tick. Anyone can participate so if you want to share as well feel free to jump in with the prompts below!

The Challenge was created by Joanne Hawker to help get her out of a creative rut on Instagram. I’ve been feeling a little sticky with my relationship to social media as well and this challenge has been the perfect remedy.

#MarchMeetTheMaker is a 31 day Instagram Challenge, set by Joanne Hawker (and solely Joanne!) that runs throughout March every year. But it’s more than just a challenge, it’s a creative community that comes together to show people what they can do. It’s about building each other up, making new connections, telling your small business story, growing your confidence (and Instagram following) and most importantly, it’s about putting yourself out there.

Celestial Beings Collection

Celestial Beings

Several years ago I collaborated with the non-profit Turning the Wheel to create a wonderfully whimsy deck of inspirational cards called “The Good Box.” The project was focused on reclaiming the word good as a positive meditation word and resulted in the creation of 30 affirmation cards all with a phrase about the innate goodness in all of us. My art is featured on the cards, and I played an important hand in the final design. After the completion of the deck of cards I felt activated to create more paintings inspired by the goodness all around us. The “Celestial Beings” Series grew organically from this starting point. The full series was on view at Fresh Thymes Eatery on 30th Street in Boulder this past summer.

Celestial Beings

Each multimedia painting was an exploration into the innate goodness around all of us. The mood created by the soft blues and purples adds a sense of ease and flow to spaces and my hope was that each would be a place of solace for the eye to rest. The name celestial beings came from a meditative journey focused on the stars, and from that meditation I felt a deep sense of the longevity of goodness that emanates from the great beyond.

Celestial Beings

Need More Good In Your Life? All of the “Celestial Beings” pieces are still available for purchase so if you feel called by their sense of goodness please send me an email at arts@khirilee.com.

My favorite piece from the collection was voted the winner of local jewelers “Canvas to Cuff” contest. “Celestial Being 6” is now a part of their EVOCATEUR cuff artist series. Feel free to swing over there and take a look at this special piece of wearable art. Walters and Hogsett, 2425 CANYON BOULEVARD, BOULDER, CO 80302.

Art Show at Anytime Fitness – Boulder

My first public art show is up! My art! On walls in a local venue! Go me!

 img_7145

I am excited to announce that my art will be hanging at Anytime Fitness for the next three months. Anytime Fitness is a local gym and I reached out after seeing their call for art. Apparently members of the gym had requested art for the space and the team at the store decided collaborating with local artists would be best. I am honored to be the first artist to exhibit in their space.

Anytime Fitness has a super chill vibe, friendly atmosphere, and you can check out my art by scheduling a tour of their facilities. Or if you are already a member, go get some exercise and soak in the colorful paintings. Thats what I plan to do! Paintings are available for purchase. Prices listed in the price sheet in the office.
