Team MR8 Fundraiser: Pour Art, BBQ and Brews

Hey Readers! Hope 2023 is starting off well for everyone!

Big love to everyone who has already contributed to my fundraising efforts – because of you, I am at 50% of my goal!

AND, I am hosting a fundraiser with my fellow teammate and friend, Vicky, on January 19, 2023! Please keep reading for more information but the link to register can be found here. Hope to see some of you there!!

Join us on Thursday, January 19th for a one-of-a-kind fundraiser for Rachel’s and Vicky’s 2023 Boston Marathon run with Team MR8. Bring friends and grab some local craft beers, delicious M&M BBQ, and make your own pour art with Dorchester artist Rahim Gray.

Rahim was born and raised in Dorchester and is self-taught in fluid acrylics. “I like that I must relinquish control when making a piece because of the power of gravity and the formlessness of liquid. Fluid art challenges me – it has no fixed shape, and when shear force is applied, it cannot resist. My art is influenced by both music and current events.”

At the fundraiser, Rahim will lead a fluid acrylics pop-up, teaching you how to make your own masterpieces. As Bruce Lee said “Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; be water, my friend.”

Rahim reminds us “Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in a certain mindset. Instead, change, grow, and adapt to certain situations. Bring new ideas into shape. Art embodies emotions. It triggers emotions and thought. It challenges you. Art, in its many forms, is therapy for the soul. Peace.”
