"And The Gods Made Love" Opening Night

Over the past month or so, Mia Taninaka, who is already well and truly part of the Deus core family, has been working diligently up in our Joglo, busting out intriguing pieces of art as part of the Deus 'Artist in residence' program. Mia's significant other, Jason Salsa Salisbury, has pulled himself away from the water and has spent the better part of the last 48 hours finishing up and hanging the fruits of his partners labor…and they managed to get it done just in time for the opening of her exhibit "And The Gods Made Love" which opened earlier this evening. As i have mentioned in previous posts, Mia is a well known and talented artist and we couldn't be more privileged to have her works displayed on the Deus galleries walls. The colorful pieces flow form one to the next in the gallery…she has definitely raised the bar…and even though we have had the worst weather since the wet season decended upon us, the show opening managed to pull an enthusiastic crowd away from the safety of their homes and brave the rain to get to the Temple and participate. The night started in the confines of the gallery but soon moved outside and continued in a true sunday night fashion. The first live act of the night, Paramitsha, blew us away…the rumors we heard didn't do them justice…Lizzy's voice combined with Tahriq's classical guitar provided a world class cound that we hope to hear more of in the future. The hydrant along with Made J stepped up later on in the evening, giving a well known dose of Rockabilly style to the crowd and getting everybody on their feet in the process. A big shout out to I Magazine for helping us put this thing together, twas a successful endeavor, the night went down as one of the best and we couldn't have asked for a better crowd!
