Art Unleashed

I'm excited to announce that I will be participating in Art Unleashed, a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City.  I've had this event on my radar for several years and finally, with the urging of my talented artist friend Andrew Johnson (the stitch maestro!), I was able to get myself together and donate a clock to be auctioned off.  I'm looking forward to seeing what Kansas City's artists have to offer in the way of animal art.

This is my contribution to the benefit:
Siamese Star Clock, 9 x 12 inches
Although it looks like just raw aluminum as the background, I actually put a piece of shimmery transparent vinyl over the sign blank to add a bit of glitteriness.  The stars made their way into the design because, well, I thought maybe more people could read it that way.  This is, after all, something I want as many people to bid on and fight over to raise as much money as possible for the little puppies and kittens.  When I stepped back and took a look I thought it kind of had a tattoo look to it, which I quite like.
Tickets can be purchased before the event for $35.  All proceeds from the auction and ticket sales go to HSGKC.  I'll be dressed up and enjoying the camaraderie on Friday, August 23rd from 7-10pm at Hale Arena in the West Bottoms area of KCMO.  See you there!
