Isoism founder Summer Winston modeled the JAJO Expo after Antigravity Magazine's yearly Alternative Media Expo. This new event aims to bring alternative art and culture to New Orleans on a more regular basis, and the July edition will feature jewelry makers, artists, clothing, hair stylists, writers and much more. Doors will be open for customers from 11:30 am to 5:00 pm and admission is $5.
You can find our newest member, Sweet Olive Soap Works, there along with MissMalaprop, who will be selling handmade and eco-friendly goods made by herself and other artists, including embroidery kits and patterns from Sublime Stitching, an Austin Craft Mafia member!
Here's a little more about the organizers & the venue:
Isoism [eye-so-iz-um] is the philosophy of seeking. If it's love, life, improvement, it's ISO! Isoism was founded by Summer Winston in July 2007 as a one-woman clothing label, with the goal of creating designs that would carry messages about pressing issues in society in a way that was both comical and digestible. This is the overall of goal of Isoism -- keep seeking personal improvement, and improvement in the world around you, but have fun doing it!
ZEITGEIST MULTIDISCIPLINARY ART CENTER
