Hanging Your Art
For All The World To See!
How nerve wracking is that.
If you're an artist, can you remember the first time you approached a gallery or hung your art for the first time?
I do, and it was nerve wracking.
River Run Gallery is hosting a Benefit Student Art Show,
where my student artists agreed to hang their art so the public could come in and vote on their favs with their cold hard cash.
As you can see, many people have come in and put their money where their mouth is.
All the art with the large numbers is from students of classes I've taught.
Look at all the varieties of art that has been painted.
It has been so much fun teaching so many people from age 4 to about 82.
Most have never painted before.
All wanted to learn to paint.
Most were nervous to come and take a class.
They overcame that fear and then they brought their art to hang in a gallery,
have people they might not know look at it and judge it by putting money in a cup with their number on it.
No FEAR there!
I am so proud of them, their work, and their gutsyness. (Is that a word?)
Thank you so much artists,
for overcoming your fear and helping to raise money.
All the money raised from this art show will be given to
Carroll County Animal Support.
They do a tremendous amount of volunteer work for lost, homeless and unwanted animals in Carroll County.
The goal is to raise $150 which will be used to spay one animal.
Congratulations to Darcel Klopp who won one of my calendars and Holly Frye who won three of my note cards.
There are two categories, adults and children, and the artist who raises the most money in each category receives 5 tubes of acrylic paint, and the second place winners receive a free class.
