Fayetteville Underground. The Galleries will be open this week starting Weds thru Friday from 12noon to 7pm. And Saturday from 10am to 5pm. The reception is 5- 8pm September 1st which is 1st Thursday y'all. Big doin's, so I'm hoping folks can make it down.
It's my first solo show there and it's in the Revolver Gallery (which is huge!) I've got around 40 new pieces ready to go on the wall. I'll be in there hanging the show tomorrow, and doing all the finishing touches. I'm excited. I'm happy. There is a lot of really amazing art on the walls in the other 3 galleries, so please, check it out.
I'm scheduled to do two scratchboard classes there at the Underground in the classroom, on Saturday Sept. 10th and 24th from noon to 3pm. The cost is low, $15.00 per person, per class. Pre-registration is requested as class size is limited to 20 folks per class. There will be a sign up sheet in the E Street Gallery, as well as in the Revolver thursday evening. I'll have Ampersand Art Supply scratchbord samples, tools, inks, patterns to trace, and various paints there, everything you need to walk out with a finished or almost finished artwork. Scratchboard is fun, instantly gratifying and all ages are invited to attend. Scratchboard is made with an archival sealed hardboard that then has a layer of white kaolin clay with black ink on top. You scratch thru the black, expose the white and if desired, you can add color using inks, paints etc.. There will be a limited amount of the scratchbord kits that I designed for Ampersand Art available for sale 1st Thursday.
