What a Difference a Day Makes: 24 Hour Art Challenge on youtube

Whew! What an exciting March it has been at the gallery! Months and months of planning and coordinating… 24 artists, 24 hours, 24 works of art to raise money and awareness for Very Special Arts Brevard. We are so fortunate to have partnered with Brandt Ronat & Company to capture the artists and their approach to the challenge in an amazing documentary about the project!

We had a wonderful premiere and gala reception on Friday, March 15th and thus far have raised over $4,000 for VSA Brevard. Thanks to all who participated… the artists, the filmmakers, the merchants who donated items for our raffle baskets and our wonderful patrons who bought tickets!

The documentary really pulled the project together. The 24 artists worked separately…in their own studios and homes and did not, for the most part, have much interaction until after the challenge was over. We talked to them about art and it’s effect on their lives and all the connections are captured on film.

You can watch it now, then stop in the gallery or call to order a copy! $10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3cLM3hDI84

TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE
Our Bi-Annual fundraiser; What a Difference a Day Makes; 24-hour Art Challenge will be held in March 2013.  The 24 participating artists will have a 24-hour period in which to create an artwork based around a small set of prompts and guidelines to be revealed that day. These works  will be sold via a “guaranteed raffle”to raise money for Very Special Arts Brevard; Established in 1987, this local organization is committed to providing persons with disabilities the opportunity to reach their full potential through the arts.
Thanks to the creative talents at Brandt Ronat & Company we will be videotaping a portion of each participant’s work day and producing a documentary about the project that will be screened prior to our special reception.
