Often times we take for granted the painstaking process many artists take when they approach a blank canvas. Once the work is on display we are quick to dismiss it as good or bad art, or can be as critical as to say “My kid could do that.” What if we had an exhibit where the works on display were made right before your eyes and you could see the process and rework that happens as an artist battles the canvas? Coming to Arthaus Projects in March we will be doing just that. We are inviting a select number of artists and good friends to come to the gallery on opening night and create during the opening. The gallery will be lined with blank canvases and artists are asked to work in the designated “studio spaces” to create what inspires them that evening. Once complete, the works will be exhibited among the remaining blank canvases and artists are encouraged to come back and tackle the other canvases until the gallery display is complete.
Works will be priced as follows: 5×7 ($40), 12×12 ($75), 18×24 ($125). Artists receive 50% from the sale of their piece.
Canvases, brushes, and acrylic paints will be provided by Arthaus Projects. All other materials, if needed, are to be provided by the artist. Use the form at https://www.arthausprojects.com/dont-feed-the-artists/ to sign up!
