Let the Challenge Begin!

Last Friday and Saturday the 24 participating artists took the challenge! They received an email early morning of their workday with a list of prompts… words and phrases like: “echo of a dream, fresh, song in action… They chose three from the list of seven and started to work on their art piece. They had 24 hours to create a work of art. The 24 pieces of newly created art will hang at the gallery during the month of March. What a Difference a Day Makes: 24 Hour Art Challenge will benefit Very Special Arts Brevard their website  through sales of the work. The artwork will be sold via a “guaranteed raffle”. All Big Ticket holders will choose an artwork from the exhibit.

To add to all the excitement of the challenge, we enlisted Brandt Ronat and Company to document the artists efforts on video. Each artist was visited during their workday and caught on film; the footage will be used toproduce a documentary about the project.

The exhibit will open for the general public on Friday March 1, 2013. The film premiere and gala reception will be held on Friday March 15, 2013. Tickets are available at the gallery and online.  Are you coming to the film premiere and gala reception on Friday March 15th? Better get a ticket. You can check out the lists of artists and buy your tickets here .
