In honor of me having my first big art exhibition opening in 20 years tonight I thought I would draw something about ART. See below the drawing for more info about the opening.
If you don’t have an idea, a concept, then not only are you lost, but you give no assurance to those looking at the work that there is anything to look at. Yes, art must stand on it’s own without words, but the idea behind the work, its ‘raison d’être’ must be apparent if one is willing to look into it.

Quote by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, an artist.
My exhibition, ‘Velveteen Women’ is opening tonight at Living Arts of Tulsa. The opening is from 6-9, is free and open to all. There will be other galleries down the street also having openings so you can make a fun art night out of it! Living Arts is located at the corner of Brady and Detroit in the Brady District of downtown Tulsa.
Here are a few images from the show. If you are in the Tulsa area I hope you can make it to the opening, if not the show will be up for 3 weeks.
I will have all the images up after the show opens and will give the link here in a few days.
