Art On 45 Silent Auction

Saturday night was the Art On 45 silent auction in Ruston Louisiana. The event was held at Rumo’s Barber Shop. All proceeds went to NCLAC’s program at the Boys and Girls Club. This was a juried show. My first!

People watching.

NCLAC is receiving a $3,300 check for their outreach program with the Boys & Girls Club, and $400 worth of fine art supplies were donated for them. There was no admission fee, but attendees were asked to donate fine art supplies.

The biddings started at $50 for each piece. 10 pieces received one or two bids. 28 pieces had between 3 and 8 bids, and 2 pieces 12 or 13 bids. 10 pieces sold for $60 or under. 14 pieces sold for between $70 and $90. 13 pieces received biddings between $100 and $175. The highest bids were between $240 and $275 for three pieces.

17 artists were new to ART ON 45 this year, and many of them also new to the audience, because those artists were not local or because they have just started showing. 

It was a a wonderful community event. Food and drinks were donated. An aweseome DJ livened things up, and there were small sculptures on display. Posters from all four annual Art on 45 events were for sale as well.

These cards are on their way to my Pals Poist postcard partners. One is headed to Ireland, one to Norway and one to California. I meant to add a flower to the middle card. But dork forgot until just as I was putting it in the envelope. Three layers of paint and then the pen work, and do you think I would remember??

Pals Poist is Jacinta Moore‘s idea for a postcard exchange. In an attempt to fill the huge gap left by the cancelation of Kat Sloma’s LYA. Jacinta even created a cool little logo for the event. Check it out!

I have already received Jacinta’s wonderful card. She calls it digital art. It is a compilation.

Very intriguing.

Isn’t that a mind bender? Or is it just my mind that is bent? This is a photo of her photo. Not doing it justice. I apologize Jacinta. So glad you had the idea to do a swap!

You’re Invited!

So much fun, making colorful fruits and veggies! This is for the TDAC Eat the Rainbow design challenge. The only hard part was deciding which of my favorites to illustrate. I love them all!

I used simple shapes to create the eats. With a little help from gradients and shadows to add dimension. Click to view more details. My plan was to paint the images. Life got in the way, the deadline got closer and I decided to go digital. I surprised myself at how quickly I put this together. Whew!

There are just over 200 entrants, four will be showcased in a featured collection on TDAC for two weeks. The whole idea is to get designers seen by art directors and creative professionals. Well, I don’t have to be one of the four to do that! This is the first in a series of challenges. I am looking forward to taking part in each of them.

Your invitation has arrived!

The Art On 45 show is on now! All works on view for two weeks. The auction takes place March 16th. If you find yourself in Ruston Louisiana, stop by and take a look! It’s been so much fun taking part and following Christiane’s progress with the event! Thank you Christiane for inviting me to participate!

I just love the way paint puddles and highlights the texture of the gesso.  I have inspirational stickers I am thinking of adding to these. Mmm… maybe I will add them to the back instead. Ha ha ha. Five more started last night. Hope you are enjoying some creative time as well!

I wanted to go dark. And boy did I. There are some light areas. I thought maybe a crop for this would keep the dark from becoming, ominous. I like it, the 8 x 8. What do you think?

Doing the work led me to a few new ideas. Cool. AND, I actually remembered to note them in my phone. Just now. But still.

 

I hope your weekend was awesome.

Productive.
Restful.
Creative.
Fun.
LONG.

What you needed most.
