Open Studios Art Tour
Posted on 20 October 2012
The Open Studios Art Tour is almost over (last day is tomorrow), but we thought we would put up some photos of our pop-up gallery and studio for those not in the area. Matt rescued some crating material from the trash and after some sawing and a a few coats of paint we had walls, and we turned our warehouse into a pop-up gallery. The walls were made to hang on our existing industrial shelving.
Kim's art looked fantastic, and it was the first time in years she had seen this many paintings collected in one show. These paintings feature adults and their 1st grade selves, along with a selected quote from their report cards.
Kim had finished 7 paintings of her sad children forced to dress up as adults. The original photo the images were taken from was a black-and-white class photo from the 1950's. DRESSING UP AS ADULTS IS NOT FUN.
Kim's painting area in the studio, with several pieces in process.
Middle school students from Dan Hartzell's video class set up a dolly shot. These very professional crew members set up equipment, gave direction and even landed an interview with the reclusive Mincing Mockingbird. He ordered the videotapes immediately erased, but was ignored.
