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 2012, there have been five successful Art Lotto exhibits and we are pumped for #6!
1) Interested artists must complete a 2019 entry form by Tuesday, March 6, 2019.
2) In March we’ll host a Luck of the Draw event at Brothers Craft Brewing 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 May we’ll host a Midway Mixer at The Golden Pony for a chance to touch base with other participating artists and pick up your complimentary Art Lotto swag.
5) In August it all culminates in two really sweet portrait shows. We will host two openings: 1) Private Progressive Party for all artists, sponsors, judges 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!
