I applied for a spot in a gallery show in Pacifica, California and I will hear back on May 31st if I made the cut. They have room for only 75 artists and so far over 100 applications. The idea is to create 50 paintings in 50 days following a theme which you presented to the gallery. Everyone's theme is unique to them but all 50 paintings have to relate to the theme you selected. You will receive from the gallery 50 6" x 6" composition board pieces on which to create your masterpieces. They will be displayed 7 across and 7 down (49) with an inch between each painting. The 50th painting can be framed and will be to the side of the grid of 49 paintings. I love the look of small paintings displayed this way. They will be on display and for sale. The artist sets the price...suggested between $50 and $150. While I am waiting to hear if I was accepted, I decided to do some drawings 6" x 6" to get a feel for what I am. I plan to create collage backgrounds and then do ink drawings of wrinkled faces and hands on top.
