Art Party, Art Party, Art Party
I held my first Art Party at my house several years ago and what was then an annual event, happens now twice a year. Basically here is how it works: Each invited guest is asked to bring a piece of art or something they crafted themselves with no higher material value of $25.
What people bring is actually amazing and very nice and it ranges from paintings to sculptures to photos to pottery to knitted items and handmade candles. At the end of each Art Party after a "Chinese Auction", each person goes home with someone else's piece of art. The most pieces displayed at any Art Party of mine was 34 different art works.
Below is a nice sampling of some of the pieces of art and the creators themselves. :-)
James is an amazing photographer
Heather had painted this very nice image
Sam created this beautiful 3 piece art work
Kelley created this nice image lamp shade with a Chattanooga theme
Steve came all the way from Atlanta with this photo
Karen work hard on this slightly political collage
Steven and Shayna created a very beautiful tile mosaic
Janelle just recently started with photography as a passion and the result is very impressive
Dana created these very attractive coffee mugs
