Over the last few days, we have been receiving artwork from some of our 100 Artists. Oh my.
I think first I must explain what we are doing for this upcoming show...I'll try.
Last August we sent out our email asking our past 100 artists if they would be interested in our 2012 show...most of the people we heard back from...some not.
Those that did respond, we then explained our show....Art of Communication. We wanted to partner artists with artists, asking each to send a letter to the other. Most of these people didn't know each other but we knew there was potential.
When the artists received their letter, they were then asked to create a piece that responded to what their partnered artist wrote...are you lost yet?
Here is an example of one of the completed pieces along with the letter.
The letter is on the side of this piece. Below you can see the letter after we unfolded it.
Here is another piece along with the letter this artist was partnered with. Interesting don't you think?
So you may ask....What were they asked to write? We left that up to the artist. It could have been one word, a poem, an experience or whatever they wanted.
So now....we are busy unpacking, taking photos and organizing for this show which opens February 1st, 2012. All pieces will be available through a silent bidding throughout the month. Give us a call to learn more and watch our website as we post the images online.
