BALI – WHERE ART MEETS LIFE is a curated pop-up Experiential Gallery Photography Exhibition by RECREATENOW taking place in Rockaway Beach until September 5, 2017.
Photographer and arts producer Mike Arseneault traveled to Bali, Indonesia, in February 2017, and was in awe with the artistry and beauty of the country and people. With a local driver and interpreter, Arseneault visited the backrooms, studios and alleyways of local artisans over three weeks and photographed them creating art while earning their living. This included artisans such as Batik artists, Door Carvers, Jewelry Makers, Stone Cravers, Traditional Painters, Mask Makers, Basket Weavers, Glass Blowers, and many more.
Inspired by their incredible skills, their beautiful heart and their flawless craftsmanship, he was inspired to share their joys and stories through this experiential photographic installation BALI – WHERE ART MEETS LIFE.
The pop-up gallery is located at 19485 Hwy 101 in Rockaway Beach (between Minnehaha and Washington). Admission is free, and a portion of Gallery sales will be donated to Meals for Seniors in Rockaway Beach.
The Bali Gallery experience also features a shop-in-shop with some of Arseneault’s favorite Rockaway Beach and Oregon Coast images available as post cards, greeting cards, premium color prints, framed prints and gallery canvas wraps, all available to purchase at very reasonable prices.
“I want to make my work accessible to everyone” says Arseneault. A third photography exhibition by RECREATENOW, a brand and creative consultancy founded by Arseneault, will open in September. This upcoming exhibit is titledTHE GLORIOUS STORIES OF ROCKAWAY BEACH.
