Thank you Rachel Herr (see pg 30 on link!) for capturing these candid moments last evening at Art Lotto’s artists/judges/sponsors Private Party. What a fun evening of looking and admiring and chatting and fun. It was a great sight to see all eyes glued to the walls of the Artful Dodger in admiration of the diverse talent that surrounds us. Portraits will be up through the month of August.
This evening, local artist Ben Fraits delivered the Art Lotto trophies to me! They work great alongside our other lotto designs with their bright colors and use of paper planes. In this case, they’re aluminum planes made from discarded beverage cans. In fact, all the supplies used in making the trophies is recycled material found right here in Harrisonburg! Here’s a sneak at one of the three awards that will be handed out on Thursday evening at our Private Party. Be sure to join us for the First Friday Public Opening this Friday from 5-7 at The Artful Dodger! There will be lots of kid-friendly activities happening out front including face painting, sidewalk art, a mini-manicure station and a coloring table! Woo art!
