LET THEM ART this Saturday will be the 3rd lowbrow group exhibit hosted by No Egrets Tattoo and curated by Joe Melanson which I've participated in. I'll be painting live in the flesh and the show is to help raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank with artists donating work for a silent auction.  This will be a great chance to get some affordable art and guess what, you can even write it off on your taxes!!!  I certainly hope to see a slew of my Clarksvegas and Nastyville folk down at the show for more art than you can shake a stick at, LIVE Painting, NUDE Body Painting, PHOTO Booth, LIVE Music and much more MADness!

Also, check out my blogs about our previous two exhibits at No Egrets to get an idea of what you're in for Saturday Night...

UPDATE 08/28/2011

If you missed the exhibit last night, Joe Melanson and the No Egrets Staff provided us with another finely executed display of some wonderfully talented folks!  I was also in good company with a slew of local friends showing out to lend their support to the arts.  Here are some pics from the show...

The real reason Joe curates these shows is to get Gin Edward's cupcakes!
Here's the live painting I did with Jeff Bertrand and Charles Bennett.  Jeff had brought a sketch in for this painting session for which we called him a dirty cheater.  We decided it wasn't cheating if we ALL drew Jeff's sketch so we worked up three interpretations.  Note Jeff (center) and Charles (right) have flying figures with wings while my guy has the power of flatulence.
Anjeanette Illustration set up a photo booth to take pics of the patrons and artists of our show!  I'll share some of them as well just as soon as she has them ready! also with her own display of recent works.

Here's a pic Aurora got while Anjeanette was working with her backdrop and getting pictures of some gals who were painted live at the show!

Dustin Dirt!

I thought Skip Pollock stole the show with these new works!

Styrofoam Art - now THAT's lowbrow!

Anjeanette Illustration is both a very accomplished illustrator and photographer.  This past weekend she set up at our show and took some great shots which she released as she edited them this week.  Here's some familiar faces and what she did with them...
