The Flood art show was Awesome. It was a great. This whole art show at Cornerstone was a complete experiment. It has never been done before… so i wasn’t sure what to expect. i actually didn’t think there would be many people. Little did i know that hundreds of people would come. The night was filled with people crowding the halls talking, enjoying great live music, and yummy desserts. We decked out the lobby, re-organizing the furniture to allow for a casual lounge atmosphere. Thanks to Chaz, Andy, Rebecca, Andrew, Jude, Brian and a few others, we pulled it off.
The art was sold as a silent auction with a starting bid price. We had around 40 art pieces in the show that catered to just about every audience and style. There was truley something for everyone. The 4 art pieces below are my contribution the show. Acrylic,and mixed media.
Chaz came up with a stellar idea to have the featured music artists that night write a specific song for flood and record, burn, and sell them the night of the show. Above is the packaging that Chaz did for them. AWESOME. The featured artists were: Molly Nass, Ryan Axtell, and Phil Tipping.
above is a painting featured in the show by Chip Neal. The blending and color use is amazing.

We will be doing an art show again soon. It was a complete success. Keep updated and consider entering for the next one. 🙂
