Painting Possibilities: An Evening of Art July 14, 2017 13:14
We've officially begun our countdown to Art Restart's first red carpet event. A world debut, Painting Possibilities: An Evening of Art is an art exhibition of fine art from women of The Gathering Place.
Working closely with Aaron LaPedis, owner of Fascination St. Fine Art, we began planning in May. We reached out to artists at The Gathering Place for art submissions. Our artists worked on proposals to show their art at the gallery and potentially win a cash prize. The Art Restart committee chose six artists to feature at Fascination St. on August 2. They recreated their proposal piece on a larger scale.
Not only is this a big deal for Art Restart, but featuring at a world-renowned gallery is an amazing opportunity for our artists. Many of our artists feature in art shows around Denver; however, galleries take commission when their art sells. Aaron is donating his space and framing expertise, and isn't taking a commission on any of the pieces our artists sell. This means that each artist will truly profit from the sale of her art.
We'll be at Fascination St. from 6-9 p.m. At 7, we'll announce the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners.
Tell us you'll be there!
