Art to Heart Exhibit at The Art Garage
I went to Green Bay today to view the Art to Heart Exhibit at The Art Garage in Green Bay WI. It was a fundraiser in which 300 people are given a 6 x 6 artists canvas and could create anything they wanted. There was an artists reception earlier in February in which people purchased the pieces and the $$ went to charity. It was quite large in size, very colorful and impressive! Can you find mine??
Here is a close up of my piece. The woman has a heart shaped face and a heart silhouette to her hair. I embellished with gliiter in the hair and rhinestones on the face as well as painted the canvas black. This is my first mixed media piece since I used paper, colored pencils and paint and worked off a canvas and not quilt batting and a sewing machine.
