Everyone knows that we are catching up on loose ends. This blog post takes us back to the 1st art show of the year. “$50 and Under Art Show” went down January 7th, 2012 and it was our first completely open art show. Open art show you say, what is that? We’ll it was the first time that we accepted art work sight unseen as long as it fulfilled certain criteria. 1) The piece had to be an original 2) The piece had to be ready to hang and 3) it had to be priced $50 and under. Simple enough. And the response was excellent. We had over 140 original pieces from veteran GCS artists as well as those neighborhood cats that hadn’t had a chance to get up on these walls. Judging from the response we got, a second $50 and under art show should be in the works soon. Maybe we’ll top 200 pieces.
Special thanks to DCaster/taco comics/ Dave Castro for doing a live painting session in the front windows and then raffling off the piece at the end of the night. As always, Moe Man and Big Wiz were on the one’s and two’s. Thanks also to everyone that came out to the show. Here are some pictures if some of the lucky art buyers that got to take some beauty home with them.
