Project Snowboard Benefiting The Special Olympics

Project Snowboard Art Project to Benefit Special Olympics

A series of snowboards painted by Pembroke Pines artists and teenagers will be auctioned off to benefit Special Olympics Broward County.

Project Snowboard got its start when about 20 snowboards were donated to the group.

“Somebody donated a bunch of snowboards, and we didn’t know what to do with them,” said Linda Mills, director of Special Olympics Broward.

Mills said an idea came up to work with the nonprofit Artists with Autism and have the snowboards painted and sold in a fundraising event.  Read More

Stir It Up

Last week was the opening reception for the new show at Studio 18. Despite the rain it was a wonderful evening.

This exhibition is really exciting because it was a chance for me to experiment with something new. I created an installation of sketches that were executed over the past 30 years. Drawing from my imagination, these doodles give an insight into my life and how I have grown as an artist.

The power to experiment…

There are always valuable lessons to be learned when an artist experiment’s. As artists we are always evolving, taking risks is a vital part of the growing process. In this particular case I decided to not only exhibit my sketches which have never been seen, but also to display them in a unusual manner, hanging from wire with a twist. Is this experiment a success? I guess time will tell.

Thank You to Studio 18 in The Pines and to Robyn Vegas who curated the show!

The exhibition will hang until May 30, a Studio Salon will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. All the artists will have a chance to speak about their works.
