Southern Pop Surrealism Interactive OPENING RECEPTION

Thanks to all the folks who braved the impending doom of the threat of inclement weather to give us a great audience Thursday night for Southern Pop Surrealism at No Egrets Art Gallery here in Clarksville!  We were delighted to see all the reactions to these collaborative paintings from the past two years.  Nothing compares to the thrill of viewing them on gallery walls with folks showing a full range of emotion from laughter to terror from the imagery!  If you missed the opening reception, you can still drop by No Egrets Tattoo on College St during normal business hours the entire month of December to see the paintings and also watch the videos of us creating them LIVE (on average, each is about 3 minutes time lapsing over 4 hours of painting!)  Here's some candid moments from our opening and live painting session...

We had a laptop streaming the time lapse painting videos for those folks without smart phones!

QR Codes on each painting bring up the video for each work when scanned!

We gave out free posters signed by all three artists at the door- Merry Christmas!

Are you Uncomfortable?

We painted live while folks watched the live painting sessions on their phones of the paintings they were viewing live... it was mind-blowing!

Spontaneous theme of the day: "Three Sharks!"


  1. I really wish I was there man! Love the work!
