I was inspired recently by viewing some amazing artworks made of cardboard and a live installation at the Third Friday event for the 78th Street Studios in Cleveland. I decided to bring a bit of that excitement to Canton.
This Friday in Canton (July 6, 2012), I will be creating a live art installation with First Friday participants, allowing them to create with me. The artwork will be made of cardboard, however, do not think for a moment that it will be drab or dull. I am planning a wonderful and colorful experience that will be fun for all.
Brewskie Butt and I are going to make a road trip to Cleveland this Friday for the Third Friday arts event at the 78th Street Studios. Well, OK, the Brew himself is not going, but his image on various artworks will be.
We have First Fridays here in Canton, and in Cleveland, they have Third Fridays. The 78th Street Studios rent out temporary space for the monthly event, so the Creative Ohio Gallery (for which I am the Director) are going to make a visit this month. If it works well, we just might make it a regular thing!
You will also be able to see artworks by Creative Ohio artists Russ Hench, Laurie Grace Fife-Harbert, Sylvia Shanahan, and others.
Follow my tweets to get live updates on the event, or better yet, come visit me on Friday!
I have been asked to speak at the BarkWorld Expo Pet Social Media Conference and Exposition in Atlanta, GA from August 20-22. My presentation will be about how I use social media to connect with admirers and collectors of my pet-themed artwork world-wide.
Not only will I be a speaker, I will also be carrying some of my paintings to the event in a GMC Terrain as a part of the GMC sponsored Bark & Ride caravan! GMC is providing 5 Terrains to transport people and their pets to BarkWorld from all over the USA. Follow my tweets on Twitter about the trip using the hashtags #BarkWorld & #GMCBarkNRide.
Also follow the tweets from @InformedFerret, who will be my copilot. We will be leaving Wednesday, August 18 and returning August 23. Brewskie Butt is not thrilled with having a pet sitter, but he and his pals will be well cared for.
There will be a friendly competition between the BarkNRide teams, a “tweet-off” so to speak, so make sure that you follow and lend support to my PawsArt team! You can show your support of Facebook and Twitter by putting a Twibbon on your avatars.
The video above explains it all. Hope to see you in Atlanta, but if not, follow along for the ride on Facebook and Twitter!
