Age limit: All ages
Description: This long-time Lawrence tradition features over 150 artists, musical performances, and children’s activities. This—the 47th annual event, sponsored by the Lawrence Art Guild—is a great opportunity to support area artists and perhaps select that perfect Mother’s Day gift.
I’ll have a booth with my acrylic on plexiglass artwork. Stop by and enjoy the fun atmosphere because the weather is suppose to be great!
I am in the process of creating a colossal 8′ by 4′ piece of artwork to hang in the waiting room of the Family Service and Guidance Center’s new Child & Family Academy building.
This piece of artwork will be comprised of over 35 smaller plexiglass paintings created by myself and some of the children and associates of the center. The process began with a painting session for the children where I taught them my painting style. That night was so successful, we decided to do another class for Family Service and Guidance Center staff members to paint over their lunch break.
After all of the plexiglass panels had been created, I starting working with Josh Pattie to assemble the painting. And with Mike at Creative Signs on the donor panels that will be surrounding the artwork.
Want to check it out? Stop by the ribbon cutting on Wednesday, April 16th starting at 4pm to celebrate the opening of the new facility and get a first look at my largest piece of art to date!
