I first volunteered for this event last year, as an art-walker (aka Vanna) and with set-up and breakdown on all sides of the 3-day event. This year on the Board as Marathon and Auction Artist Support, I had the opportunity to stay with and show up for the artists, and it was like getting hit by a lightening bolt (in the super-hero way). I know I can tend to get a little woowoo sometimes, but this gathering of these 22+ fine artists generated some powerful energy! The event space turned group studio space was literally buzzing with creativity. I felt it, and I kinda think that everyone there did as well (and do year after year, some of them). As an artist, it is just such a special treat to get to see the inner-workings of our peer's processes.
I was so excited to get back into my studio with all of my new energy, and get back to work on my own pieces! I'll post some glimpses soon and stay tuned for an invite to my December 4th Open studio here at Gasworks Galleries...but enough about me! Let's see some shots from this brilliant event!
