50-50 Show III: Day 1 of 50
June 13, 2011
I’m honored to have been again accepted from a pool of 120 artists to be in the juried show, 50/50 Show III @ the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA. I will create 50 works of art in 50 days, beginning today, Monday June 13, 2011 and ending Monday, August 1, 2011. For the show, each artist committed to a specific theme and medium of their choice and was given 50 6″ x 6″ MDF panels on which to create their works. I will begin a new series, Senseless Acts of Beauty, creating digital c-type photographic prints, perhaps with a surprise element or two.
I’m excited to see how the Senseless Acts of Beauty series will evolve over the next 50 days, in my quotidian rituals within San Francisco, as well as during trips throughout the greater bay area and in Costa Rica! My first day was magical in that I spent my spare moments looking for unexpected beauty in obvious and not-so-obvious places. What a grand adventure these next 50 days will be.
The 50/50 Show III will be on display from the grand opening on August 26th thru the grand closing on October 2nd. There will be a ticketed preview on August 25th. For details about last year’s show, the 50-50 Show II, please check my archives.
I will do my best to blog about my progress throughout the next 50 days. If all goes well this project will unfold into the “Not-so-Random Acts of Kindness, Senseless Acts of Beauty,” project. I’m thinking of these first 50 days as the pilot phase. If you would like more information about the show or the process, please contact me and stay tuned for more updates soon!
