For the second year, we are putting our own spin on the traditional Day of the Dead / All Souls Day. This year, we’ve added a group show to the event and we’re really excited to show some new work from new and our usual artists.
We see Oxford Treehouse Gallery as not only a venue for artists to share their work, but also as a community space. Day of the Dead, or All Souls Day, is a great opportunity for us to open our space up for a celebration of life. After all, what is art without the human experiences of loss and joy?
Join us on Friday, November 2nd, 2018 from 6-8 pm for our second Day of the Dead! Our gallery will be open with all of our great artists’ work on display as usual. The Roost will have our Day of the Dead art on display. On the back porch, we’ll have an All Souls Altar for celebrants to bring their remembrances of loved ones past. We’ll also set up a space for a potluck meal in The Roost.
We’ll have our memorial roll call at 7 pm. You can submit the name(s) of loved one(s) for the roll call on this Google Form.
We suggest that you bring your loved one’s favorite dish or a dish that reminds you of them for the potluck.
Here’s a list of suggested items for you to bring for the All Souls Altar:
Photos or images
Favorite items (jewelry, books, art, music, small knick knacks, tchotchkes, etc)
Names, prayers, thoughts, poems, or memories written on folded / rolled papers
Bread and salt
Our friends who are pitching in to make this event as festive as possible! We hope to see you there!
