The Createry's traveling painting parties encourage participants to get creative while enjoying food, drink, and conversation. During the events, which are held at local bars and restaurants such as Threes Wine Bar and AZN, staffers provide attendees with all of the necessary art supplies as well as step-by-step guidance. The subject matter for paintings ranges from natural scenery to abstract images of fruit. Check out the calendar for upcoming events.
Megan Dobrusin sees the world through a different filter than most. With an eye for color combinations and composition, Dobrusin can imagine striking yet legible design wherever she goes. She cultivates her natural creativity and training in the arts to design layouts and create branding logos and letterheads.
A mop of hair fringes an infant's milky-white face, his plump cheeks reminiscent of a porcelain doll. Though the image is black and white, the boy's eyes are as striking as any baby blues—reflections of the white linens gathered around his legs add depth and life to his playful gaze. This photograph, which won Janet Boschker the Canon Par Excellence Award in 2010, is but one of many that have earned the photographer numerous accolades.
At Northlight Photography, the Boschker's own studio, the photographer flaunts her signature blend of award-winning artistry in custom portraiture. Whether capturing the innocence of a child, the love of a family, or the excitement of a special event, she strives to turn each image into an artistic and timeless representation of its subject. The expert also shares some of her trade secrets through introductory and advanced photo classes.
A new zombie horde rises, hungry for the packs of humans that flee in a desperate fight to see another day. This isn't a vision of a postapocalyptic future—it happens every fall at the Zombie Run Challenge, an event in which participants dressed as zombies chase down human competitors in a race for both survival and top prizes. After registering, competitors separate into the two factions, each with separate goals. In the course of up to two hours, zombies attempt to turn humans by capturing the flags attached to their belts. The living, in turn, try to complete challenges at four–five checkpoints, taking momentary refuge or healing at outposts scattered throughout the woods. All the while, a group of volunteer mercenaries armed with foam darts hunts down the undead attackers. Before the race begins, the special-effects gurus at Gregory F/X will provide zombie makeup to participants in exchange for a donation—100% of which goes to charity and won't be used to buy the zombies fresh brains at the local deli.
An offshoot of The Wax Museum, Memories On Media began as a similarly sonically focused enterprise, editing audio clips and transferring the contents of vinyl records, reel-to-reels, and 8-tracks to CD. Since the business’ inception, its technicians have expanded their repertoire to include similar services for video-footage formats including VHS, mini DV, and 8mm.
