Watch for the next "Pop-Up" Art Show. They're Fun!

On Oct. 8, our own Nancy Warren participated in a small "Pop-Up" art show sponsored by Passport 72 -- an emerging organization dedicated to generating financial and support resources for local charities. One of their ways of generating funds and support is to organize local artists for these quick shows -- a cut of proceeds goes to help charities identified by Passport 72, tickets sales go to the expenses for the show -- and local artists get great exposure in a very comfortable and intimate setting. Great for everyone!

This show was upstairs at Southend Brewery & Smokehouse downtown on East Bay Street -- The ticket was $5 and could be exchanged for an appetizer or a drink. Eight artists participated -- several painters, one who constructed pieces from found objects , one who made marbled paper -- and Nancy, who had a group of lovely deconstructed screen prints.

It was also fun to run into abstract painter Karole Turner Campbell who is friends with Arianne King Comer (batik dyer)and Cookie Washington (quilter, doll maker, curator) -- two extraordinary fiber artists close to Palmetto Fiber Arts Guild.
Check out this link to see profiles of all eight artists who were in the Oct. 8 show. And watch for more Pop-Up shows from Gallery 72.  This is a new model of raising funds and helping artists gain recognition and sales!
