In late 2018, downtown Nevada City Herbal Lounge Elixart opened a second location in San Francisco in partnership with Onedome, an immersive art museum in the heart of the SoMa district. When Colter Merrick and Sharon Cummings decided to transform their new Nevada City art gallery into something more around 2012, they added a tea bar and hosted gatherings where plant beverages with thousands of years of tradition were served.
Elixart continues its path of serving non-alcoholic, plant-based beverages. This is part of a new paradigm trending away from alcohol and towards healthier choices as part of an integrative lifestyle. The new location provides a lounge and bar for Onedome’s The Unreal Garden. Elixart’s San Francisco location features a 30+ foot bar designed and fabricated by Nevada County artist, Branch Ellison.
Ellison has worked with Elixart since 2014 when he produced the solo art exhibit, “Time in Form,” with large scale orgonite sculptures for their Nevada City location. Ellison’s work elevates orgonite to the level of fine art with much larger works than generally seen in this complex, alchemical sculpting discipline. Another art exhibit is planned for July which will feature Ellison, but also include many other other artists.
Elixart is doing something new. Its collaboration with artist Branch Ellison and Onedome Global suggest a readiness in our society for something that merges holistic energy with the focus of technology-enabled artistry….a new way to fill our cup with vibrant life.
