So, The Art:314 Silent Auction and Party is happening November 13th at the Contemporary Arts Museum, and I’m really excited. I got a sneak peek of the artists showing and I fell for Barb Flunker’s work. I was so impressed at the way that she up cycled barbed wire into beautiful pieces of art work! Her oil and acrylic paintings have vibrant base colors with dark splashes on to balance them out. Her pieces make me feel so eclectic. It’s like a chic party on a painting. I can totally see one of those pieces hanging up in my new home! I actually got a chance to ask Barb what inspired her design aesthetic and she said
Travel, nature and recycling found materials are imperative to my work. As you explore “Roadtrip One” you will find the undulation of roads and terrain, interspersed with materials from various road trips. This excites my being. Manipulating and playing with the materials in my hands, the work evolves into its three dimensioal space.
She definitely sounds like my kind of artist.
With Art:314 being around the corner, an important question that I had to ask myself was, what am I going to wear? After some thought I decided that I would go for something eclectic like Barb Flunker’s work, so here’s a sneak peak of what I’m going to wear.
So my friends, you don’t have to miss out on all of the Art:314 fun. There will be a number of wonderful artists also displaying their work and of course I’ve got the hook up for you! Get $10.00 of your ticket using code Moda5498. Click here for tickets and I hope to see you there!
