Art Lotto: portraits of artists – by artists. Art Lotto is an artist-based, community-oriented portrait show that started as a conversation between two friends, Brandy Somers and Denise Kanter Allen, over tacos. Since 2102, there have been four extremely successful Art Lotto shows and we are ready for #5!
1) Interested artists must complete a 2017 entry form by Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
2) In March we host a Luck of the Draw event at The Golden Pony in Harrisonburg, Va where each artist will randomly select the name of another artist. They will meet the artist that evening, maybe for the first time.
3) Between March and mid-July each artist will complete a portrait of their selected person, in their medium of choice.
4) In August it all culminates in a really sweet portrait show. We will host two openings: 1)
Private Party for the artists & sponsors where winners are announced and we have a full on celebration of the artists, their artwork and the connectivity of arts in our town and 2) First Friday Opening Reception where we invite the public to view and celebrate with us!
