RAW presents Panorama

The show was a success!! Let's back up a a bit though. As some of you know I got recruited by the director for RAW Artists Seattle for their June 22nd showcase at Neumos after they saw my work at Pancakes and Booze. An overview about RAW:

RAW: natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists. We're an international community made up of creative individuals across the globe. Our mission is to provide independent artists within the first 10 years of their career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. We welcome all genres of art including independent film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, hairstylists, makeup artists and more. RAW currently operates in nearly 60 cities across the United States, Australia, Canada and, now London!


RAW took professional head-shots and photos during the show and also recorded a 3 minute promo video of each of us to showcase our artwork digitally.

The show went very well. The director gave me a really nice location at the venue and I had a lot of space to drip paint through out the show. I painted 3 pieces that evening: a sea turtle, fox and birds on a wire. I competed with the stage for an audience but I think I did pretty well as there was a lot of talent in the space. My grandma was front and center and that is all that mattered .

I showed 10 original works and sold prints. I was in charge of my own lighting as well as hanging so it was a good experience that will prove helpful as I am participating in three more shows in July where it will be up to me to set up.

This won't be the last I see of RAW.  My good friend, Anna of AlwaysStrange and I are looking into doing another show with RAW in New York next spring.
