This is a work-in-progress shot of my painting of the Downtown Plaza, barely one block away from gallery space itself. I'll be doing a series of drawings of the plaza in conjunction with Main Roots Coffeehouse (which I'll keep you posted on), so I thought "why not do a painting as well?"
Not only was ART WAR a blast - being immersed in a timed project with a room full of extremely talented artists - but it also kicked off the beginning of yet another meaningful step forward in the revitalization of historic downtown.
Thanks to SU Art Gallery Director, Elizabeth Kauffman and Gallery Manager, Marisa Sage for having me be a part of this very cool event. And a big congrats to Cori Beardsley for taking home the Art War gold. Kudos to her and her massive 300 pound Joker-esque sculpture (if you have the chance to see it you will not regret it). Look forward to Art Warring next year!
