She is: an artist/a woman/inspired


This is my first exhibit with the idea of MUSIC=ART. 

MUSIC=ART is a blog, a comic, my dream, and my mission of creating a movement of artists and musicians that want to inspire.  We all have our own stories, expressions, and creations to share.  I believe that two is better than one. That music and art together can create  a healing, an awakening, and an exfoliation of the senses.

Who’s with me? 

Join the movement and come check out  She is : A showcase of artist Meredith Towsand’s work “My Diary” and “MUSIC=ART”.  

“She is” will be on display the entire month of May at The Shop on 312 E. Seneca St. The Opening Celebration will be held Friday May 7th @ 6pm. This is also Gallery Night in downtown Ithaca. So, make sure to include The Shop in your circle around town checking out art!

There will be light refreshments and a free MUSIC=ART comic book for guests!

-“My Diary”: photos, drawings, and objects collaged together depicting Towsand’s past and current life.

-“MUSIC=ART“: the comic characature of artist Meredith Towsand and her journey of searching for inspiration within music and art.

Thao + The Get Down Stay Down with The Sutras @ Castaways

Sunday 4.18.10 Thao + The Get Down Stay Down played at Castaways in Ithaca, NY. Most locals were at Cornell seeing The Flaming Lips the same night.

I was thankful to not miss this show.

A positive energy filled the room with The Sutras opening up for Thao. I was lucky enough to go home with The Sutras  EP  they gave away at the show. My first time seeing them, I am sure to catch there next local show.

Thao entered the night with a few jokes breaking the ice, then smashed the crowd with loud, passion filled music that kept you moving the rest of the night.

post paint off



I painted live tonight for the 4th annual Ithaca Festival Paint Off 2010. I was among 25 other artist that were given one hour to paint live in front of an audience. This was not a competition, but a fundraiser for the Ithaca Festival 2010. 5 artist paintings were chosen to be live auctioned off shortly after the hour time limit for completion. The other 20 artist artwork was donated then raffled off to the crowd with whom ever had the lucky raffle ticket.

I was not chosen as the one of the 5 artist to have their painting auctioned off live. There were some great paintings that one that recognition. Among the five was artist Kateyn Inman. Inman’s painting was auctioned off at almost $300! Inman also had a lucky raffle ticket and chose to take home my painting. I am very humbled.

I painted along side a few artist and kept shaking the table. Sorry! I tend to move the canvas a lot when using particular techniques. I chose to have a similar theme and style as one of my archive artworks “He woke me up again”. I chose this theme because I believe it captures the beauty of nature and realism, yet strikes you with abstract expression. My boyfriend really encourages and appreciates this style. Thanks darlin!

Over all, the event went faster than I thought it would. I thought the hour would drag, but when your painting, it flies. I completed my painting in 40 min. I’m getting good at this live art stuff! So, I grabbed my camera and strolled around and captured some shots of the other artists. I appreciated the interaction that onlookers would engage while strolling around. I was given a boat load of positive feedback.Thanks everyone! A great event and a huge turn out. I am proud to be part of a great community of artist and art fans alike.
