FINAL FRIDAY Art Reception April 29th, 5-9pm
Kāli Deno and Adria Ruth met on the dance floor and found artistic support and encouragement in each other. The artists brought together their shared love of nature for this art show, which celebrates their connections to the Pacific Northwest, Polynesia, and the Prairie. Both artists live in a perpetual state of duality by having fulfilling lives in Lawrence, Kansas and maintaining a sense of home elsewhere. Kāli’s deep roots to the Pacific Northwest keep her tethered to it through her love of the region’s ecosystems and its people. Adria’s deep roots in Polynesia fuel her ongoing love of that region’s lands, sacred waters, its people and animals. Bloom expresses the artists’ combined devotion to these environments which shaped them and that continue to illuminate their lives with meaning and purpose. Their hope is that the magic of nature embraces and ignites you when looking at these pieces.
Kāli Deno is a local artist and dancer who spends most of her time raising her two kids, painting, growing plants, camping, and exploring spaces outdoors in the prairie. She’s currently dedicating her time toward community involvement with growing food on public land and food sovereignty in Douglas County.

Dear Sisters, let’s step into the circle with commitment, curiosity and compassion. This journey will include 15 hours as a collective, 18 weeks of accountability, and 126 days of practice. We will open the 5 sacred gateways and dive into the power of our practice. This workshop is open to all who identify as women, beginners and seasoned practitioners, dancers and non-dancers alike. We will use the medicine of the rhythms~flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness in service of our body, heart, mind, soul and spirit. We will support each other in our commitment to our daily practice. I look forward to our time together discovering 5Rhythms as our spiritual practice, our moving meditation.
