Few & Far 5th Year Anniversary Block Party

June 4th, 2016 held significance and was a major milestone for Few and Far. Five years ago on that date – Meme, Founder of Few and Far, organized a massive mural project in Oakland and pulled together a group of women from all over the United States. Since then, members of Few and Far have created numerous murals across the globe, building with and empowering communities worldwide. Our collective is now comprised of 17 talented female artists that include women from Nepal to Ecuador. Every year the group gets together to celebrate that anniversary, and their hard work and achievements by creating large scale murals in different communities.

This June 4th weekend, the mural took place in Sacramento, in the alley of 24th and S streets in midtown. The Few and Far ladies were joined by10-15 other female artists from different cities and states, roughly totaling 22 muralists who painted all weekend. It was kicked off by a neighborhood block party featuring local vendors, Dj’s, and live mural painting which took place on a sizzling hot Saturday in June and was well attended by the community and neighbors. This was the 3rd Few and Far organized mural on this wall. img_3107

Queens Of Style

Queens of Style, March 5

We dare you to find a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than this. Female artists from up and down California and neighboring states will come together to showcase their skills in artistic expression. A feast for the eyes and the soul, through art work, live painting and performances, they will elevate the space together in one place.

We are excited to announce that Dj Agana and other members of the Few and Far Women crew will be present to share their gifts and create a live mural. Other event guests include student artists, spoken word artists, vocalists, musicians and more.

Without the community, the Urbanists, Urban Art Collective would not be able to do the work we do. So in that same spirit of community, in addition to the arts and entertainment, we are also inviting service providers offering valuable community resources to come hang out with us and connect with the public.

 

A panel discussion is also scheduled on the morning of March 5 that will feature four well-known successful artists from outside of the area to share their stories, inspire us all, and answer any questions. Help us make this happen!

Support of donate HERE.

Queens of Style art event is 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 5 throughout downtown Visalia,including the Visalia Lumber Yard, Oak and Garden streets and the Arts Consortium on the c orner of School and Church streets.

Few and Far Art Basel Video

Few & Far at Art Basel, Dec. 2014 from AC_in_CA on Vimeo.

Art Basel is America's largest art fair, taking place annually each December in Miami, Florida, with thousands gathering from around the world to view the spectacle. Few and Far has gone out to paint a mural each year since its inception, and this one is their largest to date. At roughly 30' tall and over 90' wide, this wall was an amazing way for each of them to grow as artists and collectively show the world who they are: a crew of diversely talented female mural painters with a multitude of backgrounds, who work together to complete beautiful productions. Thanks for watching and see you next year!

Another amazing year of painting a huge mural with the women of Few and Far. This years theme was an electric underwater world, which we painted over 4 days during Art Basel: one of the worlds largest art events that happens over a week every December in Miami. Our wall was one of the largest all-female collaborations in the Wynwood district, with 16 Few and Far artists from various parts of the country and globe painting together on this mural.
