In The Frame @ Sunset On Central

~ March No 2 ~
 

 

 

Hello Guys & Gals, Friends & Family, Followers & Likers and residents of Greater Port Macquarie as a whole,

What do you think of our new Creative Space that we hire out to local creatives and businesses for workshops?

We have already made improvements since this picture was taken too!

 

 

We had some feedback that last months newsletter/blog was to long, so we shall try doing a weekly one instead and see how we go, we are at week 2.

Oh what a week it has been, we have had a new photographer join the family of our online image library, the Nannas Of The Lost Art have been busy making blankets for the refuge, the creative space has had many visitors to it including the regular Tuesday afternoon crew, the framing has been vast and varied and we have launched our hot desk service (desk for hire by the hour/day or week).

 

There could be more however this is being written in the early hours of a morning with only one coffee intake so far. Speaking of coffee, we took ourselves off for a treat coffee on Sunday morning while we were childless for a few hours and we decided on The Boathouse at Sails resort and we have to say it was a really good coffee and the view is stunning. Check them out here

 

Movie Of The Week

Our movie of the week is an oldie but a goodie, drum roll please ..it is ….... The Thing From Another Planet



The low down on this movie: Scientists and American Air Force officials fend off a bloodthirsty alien organism while at a remote arctic outpost.
Check out the original trailer for a bit retro horror movie entertainment.

Fun fact about the movie 
The Thing from Another World was released in April 1951. By the end of that year, the film had accrued $1,950,000 in distributors' domestic (U. S. and Canada) rentals, making it the year's 46th biggest earner, beating all other science fiction films released that year, including The Day The Earth Stood Still and When Worlds Collide.

The Nannas Of The Lost Art have been amazing over the last few weeks (ok ..ok they are always amazing), the group has grown out of its single table, it grew out of its two tables and so now we have three tables. The N.O.T.L.A group were donated some knitted squares by a beautiful soul and they have been making them into a variety of rugs and blankets, these will be donated to the Women and Childrens Refuge here in Port Macquarie. Here is a few pictures of a couple of the Nannas and their finished products ready for donation.

They are just the absolute business when it comes to matters of the heart and matters of the once almost forgotten handcrafts.

How Living With Art Is A Benefit To You

When you look out your kitchen window and see the ocean vista and you feel that warm happy feeling within your soul its a lift on your day, what if you dont have an ocean vista, or a mountain top to look at ..what do you do then?

You find art that fills your soul with those same heartwarming, soul filling feelings. Art has the power to enrich your day, to lift your spirits to give you a moment of peace, nostalgia or escape. When it has that kind of power why would you not invest in your emotional and mental health with it.

We have a friend who worked in high end fashion in the hub if Sydneys top retail spaces and after chatting about the value of clothing she said "let me put it to you this way, you could buy an item for $10 at a major outlet wear it 4 times and it has shrunk, faded or gone out of shape that means it cost you $5 a wear and it was no good then the following season. You could spend $90 on a similar item but of higher quality and it not only lasts you years and years worth of seasons, it stays in shape, has not shrunk and is the same colour as when you purchased it and you can sell it on because its a quality known product, in one season you may wear it say 10 times, you have it for 6 years thats 60 wears, so that means it was only $1.50 a wear" that was a real thought provoking statement. 

Its the same with art, you can purchase a low end mass produced item from a major outlet and putting aside that 5000 or so other people have it on their wall, is it going to stand the test of time? By quality original art that is made on quality product, framed in a quality product behind quality glass and it will last you a life time of those heart warming moments we mentioned earlier. Every time you enjoy looking at and living with that piece of art its going to become even better value, now that is going to make you smile even more.

"Art is good for you. And just like the effort you put into taking better care of yourself through exercise and healthy eating, it’s equally important to bolster your brain’s integrity through activities that provide positive psychological stimulation. Art easily fulfills this goal, for both those who consume it and those who make it. When you gaze upon a piece of artwork you really love and experience a deep sense of calm or joy, research is showing that this beautiful sensation of euphoria is not at all incidental. Most important, repeated exposure to the source of this positive stimulation makes you a calmer, more emotionally balanced person." S.C.Versillee
 

" MRI scans illustrate that viewing, collecting and creating art stimulate the emotion and reward centers of our brains. When we observe a piece of art that deeply pleases us, dopamine is released producing a psychological state similar to falling in love. As with mindful meditation, the act of regularly consuming and creating art is powerful enough to “rewire” our brains to improve our capacity for empathy and self-awareness while also increasing our resistance to stress1. A London study from the University of Westminster found that gallery visitors’ cortisol levels (the stress hormone) decreased after a 35 minute lunchtime stroll through the gallery.2 And interestingly, research has also shown that art affects men and women differently, with women receiving the most benefit from the act of making art, and men receiving greater benefit from consuming it.3" S.C.Versillee
 

We have created a board on Pinterest with links to articles on the benefits of art and living with art, its just here we hope you enjoy the read, its a good one for Sunday morning over your coffee

 

From our family to yours, thank you for your support.

Scott & Cherie, Jackson, Samantha, Sienna, Danny & Alex.
