Three part post
This past weekend I attended the "Hot Art Cool Nights" art hop in Baton Rouge. It was great, there were many things to see and experience. I think events like this are good for getting art and community together, which is something that art is supposed to do. In addition, I also found out about a cool Website that brings art and observers together in one location, and finally I finished a painting that I had been working on. So many art happenings, all at one time!
"Hot Art Cool Nights" was an art exhibit that took place across several venues in central Baton Rouge. It happens annually, but this is the first one I attended. More about it can be read here. Attendance seemed a little low, but I attribute that to the stormy weather. At one point I was certain it was going to rain.
One location that I really enjoyed was in the supermarket. Art and a live band were set up adjacent to the meat department! (There was also free wine tasting at this stop). There's just something inherently funny about art being set up and offered next to fresh cuts of meat. Good news if you came to look at and purchase art, not so good if you just stopped in for some bologna and bacon.
This image represents one of my most recent paintings. It's called the dance of life, and it builds on the techniques and experiments I have been discussing in recent posts. What do you think?
Well, that is is for this week. More art to come in the future! Keep checking my website, there will be updates soon!
