After the 4th why not make plans to check out some of Shelby County's aspiring young artist at the Davmar Art Gallery on the Historic Downtown Square in Center. Join us for an evening of refreshments as we celebrate these young artist and their works over 6 weeks of study!
Well Its summertime… what to do with these kids???! And its already hot outside? But the Cool Art class’s have formed at the Davmar Gallery where its nice and cool inside and always something fun going on. We have a few openings left, but most class’s have ended up being kind of small, which is good. Most classes have 3-4 students so a few more could fill in nicely then we will close the class openings and start the fun. If you have any questions feel free to call, text or email us. Better than having them chill out with a cell phone in their face or video games right?? Or..." Mom, there is nothing for us to do "! Now there is - Class’s are on Tuesdays & Thursdays for kids, Fridays for adults. Have a special party in mind, you bet…we can do private Paint Party at the Gallery after hours or on weekends( BYOF or we can cater) call us for more details!
Live Painting is an original performance in which an artist over a short period of time, creates an original painting in public, perhaps in front of an audience or people just walking by. Unlike a traditional setting in which a painter works privately at a studio over an extended period of time and shares the work only after it is finished, live painting lets the audience watch the creative process unfold from beginning to completion. But for the artist, its another story. From me, live painting with giant canvas in public pushes me as an artist to put everything I know on the line. I can not concern myself with ” what if factors” or “ screw ups ”. I have to approach the situation, the location, even the vibe of the people around me, all as one, and all nicely checked at the door. I have to be completely and totally at ease with with I am about to do. My mind, body and all my skills are focused where I am at, what I see and feel, at that very moment. In addition there is a wonderful freedom knowing when I am done I will walk away and leave the painting for who ever wants it…If they will let it dry.
My dear friend and old college buddy will be there to guide me in the city as we dive into some of the coolest spots he knows ( yes he knows NY well ). We have yet to pick locations.
So, off I go to one of the largest cities on the planet to paint. Pics, maybe even a FB live one day and some cool video to follow soon…Watch out New York, Mr David is coming to town!!!
