Private P-art-y!

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.IMG_2077web IMG_2084web IMG_2037webIMG_2035web IMG_2028bwweb IMG_2030bwwebIMG_2044bwweb IMG_2031web IMG_2049web IMG_2042webIMG_2050web IMG_2056web IMG_2052web IMG_2054web IMG_2060webIMG_2051web IMG_2055web IMG_2058bwweb IMG_2061bwwebIMG_2065web IMG_2067webIMG_2066webIMG_2074bwweb IMG_2062bwweb IMG_2073bwwebIMG_2082web IMG_2085web IMG_2088web IMG_2086web IMG_2081webIMG_2092web IMG_2098web IMG_2090web IMG_2093web IMG_2089bwwebIMG_2099web IMG_2100web IMG_2107web IMG_2103web IMG_2108bwweb IMG_2110web

Behind The Muse: with Lynda Bostrom

Lynda not only participated in the first Art Lotto but she won both the Kid’s Choice and the Best Use of Medium awards last year. She has a creative energy that flows through this town and inspires the heck out of me. And she’s an all ’round good human being to boot. In the midst of relocating and sorting through her boxed up life, Lynda continues to make time for creative ventures. Below, she is caught working in her office/studio on her lotto portrait of Katie Struble. This year, Lynda’s portrait will be created by Sharon Skates of Broadway, Va.
