It has been a long term goal of mine to join my mom at the Western Heritage Art Show during Western Art Week in Great Falls. She has been doing this show since I was about 5 years old – I remember at that time the swimming pool was the highlight of the show for my sister and I. Now I enjoy all the camaraderie of the fellow artists as well as getting a week long ‘fix’ of nothing but art, art, and MORE ART. That couldn’t make me happier. This year I am BEYOND excited to be joining her at the Western Heritage Art Show, which is one of about 5 art shows that are all taking place in Great Falls Montana during Western Art Week. The Western Heritage Art Show is the longest running art show in the collection of shows going on during Western Art Week and the only exhibitors at the show are the artists themselves; (instead of galleries) which I like.
I will be ‘tweeting’ and posting updates on my facebook page throughout the show, but if you are in the area, I would HIGHLY recommend taking a day to walk through the shows. I can’t say enough how awesome I think it is to have the best artists in the region will all exhibiting together at the various shows across Great Falls, MT.
I am excited to be participating in the Twitter Art Exhibit for the second year. Artists from all over the world donate a 4×6 piece of art, which is auctioned off to benefit a different non-profit each year. In the past, Twitter Art Exhibit has generated funds for children’s books at a library in Moss Norway and resources for a women’s shelter in Norway, and this year it is benefiting the Art Devision in Los Angeles. (www.artdivision.org) While the first two exhibitions were held in Moss, Norway, this year’s Twitter Art Exhibit will be held in Los Angeles at the Exhale Unlimited (E.U.) Gallery. It is very exciting to launch this concept globally. I absolutely LOVE the concept of artist from all over the world coming together to use their art to raise money for a great cause.
“Through art we can change the world.”
If you are an artist, please consider participating. All the information you need can be found at www.twitterartexhibit.org
Here are some work in progress images of what I am working on for the #twitterartexhibit
