pgp409: Decadent Dreams & Nightmares, a Pangea AfroSocial

I remember when I used to attend ArtMonday’s at Atlanta’s Apache Cafe as simply a photographer and artist. I’d walk in from a hard workday of a grind that was not mind doing work that, while it was substantive, it was also soulless to me and would leave me drained. So when I would get here it was like a baptism for my soul; a creative baptism in a communion of artists, photographers, models, DJs a...

pgp404: a taste of Apache, revisited…

You know, Pangea’s AfroSocial is an evening or artistic interactive experiences designed to provoke, inspire and arouse you. It’s that different kind of a date night and/or that special girls night out. For patrons, it is that night where you can discover your inner artist using the art tools at your table (courtesy of Pangea’s Garden.) ALL PATRONS ARE INVITED TO MAKE THE ART! Or you c...

At a relatively steady pace they all trickled in over the span of a couple of hours. Coming out of the frigid cold of a January winter night in Atlanta various artists and photographers made their way to city’s Apache Cafe and Lounge, all looking for random, organic moments of inspiration and community over food and drink. DJ Bluue joined us for the night, masterfully rolling out hypnotic me...

LuvJonez… an afrosocial at the Apache Cafe

It about that hunger that needs to be fed; that thirst that needs to be quenched. LuvJonez. At the Apache, the light low and colorful, casting shadow that, accompanied by music and verse, paid homage to that sense of passionate longing on a cold Monday night. Spoken word artist TinaATL stepped up to two stages last Monday, acting as muse to artists/photographers and sharing verse to creatives and ...

Food, drink, music and muses… an AfroSocial

Food, drink, music and muses… an AfroSocial

a personal account… “Come out of the rain and be inspired.” That was the tag I shared in one of the invites I sent out for last night’s AfroSocial. Humidity hung in the air outside the Apache Cafe keeping it from getting too cold and while rain was a constant threat, the skies held back most of their tears. For this first AfroSocial of 2015 three earthSistas stepped up to t...

I have to say, I did not see this coming. The week started rather spectacularly with an earthSista image shoot featuring new earthSista Raine. It was the beginning of her Oshun Series that she plans to elaborate on in the near future. The beautiful diva was adorned in gems provided by jewelry designer Zeus DeShaman, embellished by talented make-up artist, earthSista FURY and dressed by stylist Jam...

While all of our features are for everyone, this one is a special note for the artists and photographers who partake in the experiences we have every 2nd Monday (tonight!) at the Apache Cafe in Atlanta. There’s an ambiance in the place; a play of light and shadow that works with the location’s decor to create truly unique backdrops for potentially extraordinary images. Because of the l...

You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great. ~Maya Angelou For me, the day leading up to Pangea’s night at the Apache Cafe was a tense one. It typically is; bringing together the earthSistas, getting everything together, letting everyone know that what’s going and not knowing, until you are in...

Bohemian Circus Reloaded: Dangerous, Wicked, Hypnotic

Bohemian Circus Reloaded: Dangerous, Wicked, Hypnotic

Miss JadeFox lives. A couple of weeks ago the earthSistas performed a theme at the Apache Cafe–posing for artists and photographers. VoodooChile. We each inhabited different incarnations of the woman of magic. We brought totems, masks, candles to allow ourselves to get into a trance. On the back patio, in the cool night air, we dress each other, paint our bodies, as if the act of prepping wa...
