Watercolor – A Wonderful Event

Thanks to Jeff Shonkwiler, the creator and director of Artist Registry, I have been invited to participate in a fantastic art event. The Maitland Art Center (MAC) is hosting this event as a part of its fund raising goals. I will be one of twenty-one artists to participate in this unique hands-on event.

This event is called “pARTicipation.”

Reception and Preview Show. Friday, July 25, starting at 6:30 pm

Hands-on Event, Saturday, August 2, starting at 10:00 am

The opening reception is where the artists (emerging and practicing) will show one piece of art in the style they will paint, demonstrate, and/or participate (hands-on).

A bidding process will take place at the Reception, like a silent auction, and will provide the opportunity for the public/patrons/donors to bid on a 45 minute time slot with the artist of their choice. Bids start at $100 where public/patrons/donors who find interest in the media/art/style of the artist of their choice, and select the time frame(s) for the Hands-on Event. All proceeds benefit the Maitland Art Center and provide the opportunity to promote membership with MAC.

The Reception and Preview Show is open to the public. Successful bidders will attend the Hands-On Event.

This is an opportunity for my art friends and clients to share a hands-on event with me and have a lot of fun creating a piece of watercolor art. Mark your calendars, I promise we will have a ball!
