UALR 6 X 6 Event, Faculty Biennial, etc

UALR Friends of the Arts put on a 6 X 6 art event/auction on behalf of the Departments of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

They sent out an email about a month ago asking for Demonstrating artists and I signed up.

It was a really successful event. Many people attended from several different programs.

Luckily, the postcards for my show came in this week. I got to pass out several at the 6 X 6 Event! 
I love them. I think they turned out fantastic.

All snazzied up for the demo.

 The fundraiser was in the Applied Design building. I had never been in there before and it was a great set-up.

Each demonstrating artist had a workbench area to work from.

I set up my space. I had a finished piece and demonstrated a work in process.
My laptop showed off my sketches and other work.

I started this painting specifically for the demo. I had attempted a super large one, but my sketch failed. I'm really excited about how this one is going. It was an unexpected painting but it will be a great addition to my show in December.

It was a great event with a great turn out. I got to meet several members of the art faculty and staff that I hadn't met previously. I also got to meet several members of the board at UALR, as well as other people in the art community around town.

My phone died before I could get more pics. Hopefully I can grab some from the UALR page to add here later.

On another note, my other two paintings from the "Floral Collection" are up right now as part of the Faculty Biennial. The opening isn't until early November. I will try to take more pictures then.
