BareWalls 2009

So yesterday I participated in the 15th annual BareWalls 2009 exhibit – a benefit to support the endowed BareWalls Scholarship Fund for aspiring students at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  It was a nerve-wracking/crazy/fun experience to make artwork live in front of the audience (on an 8-hour deadline), but I’m really glad I did it.  I had the opportunity to meet a lot of new artists and really enjoyed the challenge.  I was really timid at first, but finally met some really great people that got me out of my shell.  The volunteers were also very helpful in hanging my pieces and bringing me food/water! Kudos to them!

The artwork you see here is my favorite finished piece out of all 5 I ended up completing for the show. Check out some of the other photos on flickr. Enjoy!

Some awesome artists I met at the show:
Lorna Filippini-Mulliken
Kathleen King
Carmel Anderson
