Happy Monday and Happy November! I have so much to do today and so much going on I can't quite wrap my brain around it all! I hope everyone had a fun and scary Halloween yesterday! I am ready to welcome the next 2 months, as the weather finally cools (well, kind of?), and holiday excitement starts to stir in the air :)
Did my post title get your attention? Hehe :) Sorry for such a late post - I have a really fun announcement that I wanted to share with you early this morning, but couldn't find any links. I would still be looking if my friend Joanne hadn't seen this tweet from our City Hall, recognized my artwork, and posted it on Facebook - thank you Joanne!
My art has never been exhibited before. But 3 of my pieces are part of a special art exhibit at City Hall! I am so excited! Last summer my friend Traci found out the City was taking abstract art submissions, and suggested I send some photos of my artwork. Well, I did just that, and forgot about it. A few weeks ago, I was told that they would like to use 3 of my submissions - 2 large pieces and one small - for their "Why Abstract?" exhibit. Wow! So a big thanks to Traci, and to Jeff at the City! The exhibition has just opened, and you can read about it below.
(You can see my 2 large pieces of art in the 2ond photo)
Tomorrow night (Tuesday the 2ond) is the official artist's reception which I will be attending from 7-9:00. I'll be viewing the exhibit for the first time myself, and will drag my family with me, since I have told them absolutely NOTHING about this and they have NO IDEA this is even happening - hehehe :) I would love to see you there!!!
*and sorry this post is so doggone WONKY! technical difficulties... !@#$%^&*!
City Hall gets Abstract!
By City of Santa Clarita

City Hall get its walls and halls filled with different type of Abstract Art. What does Abstract Art mean? An abstract art piece is about what the artist is feeling or trying to communicate with the viewer. Looking at the colors and the patterns is meant to give you a chance to create your own vision of what you are seeing or feeling. Abstract art is about the expression of feelings that can be seen differently by the artist and the viewer.
Abstract art is an act of an artist’s emotion and expression, and do not always present themselves in an obvious “fruit on a table” way. The color, brush strokes, line, and movement of all abstract art forms is meant to stimulate the observers own feelings, while also expressing that of the artist. Upon viewing an abstract piece of art, look deep, consider the colors, the sway of the design, and what it makes you feel. Look deeper yet, and you may see the abstract is not so abstract at all, but perhaps an obscured face or some kind of starlit sky.
Come check out Abstract Art over at City Hall, and ask yourself these questions when you check out the art:
What do you feel? What do you see? What do you think?
