Here are some snap shots from last week's smART show held at UALR.
All of the pieces were donated by students, faculty, or alum of the university.
For every 5 pieces donated, the artist could have one showcase piece.
Awesome, awesome silk screened tees by Erin Lea Lorenzen.
A little birdie told me that they can be found locally at Box Turtle.
Tons of prints, drawings, photographs, and other pieces were up for grabs.
At 20 bucks or less a pop, people were lined up ready to snatch up their finds before we even started!
I left that evening with a few pieces to call my own.
I mean, I need to spruce up the new diggs!
The future roomie, manning the table where money and art exchanged hands.
Also the perfect place for some shameless self-promotion!
Speaking of shameless self-promotion, I did some of my own...but I'm sure you couldn't notice, right?!
My pieces shared space with cute earrings by Carrie Crocker, a very talented classmate of mine.
All of the proceeds raised went towards Our House, a local shelter for the working homeless.
Opening night raised about $1,000...$200ish raised from Mia Hall's (my hero) donated piece for the prize drawing (which I personally spent 50 bucks in tickets...and no, I didn't win it...sad day).
All in all, the final total was well over $2,000...more than double what we made last year!
SUCCESS! SUCCESS! SUCCESS!
Until next time, ♥.
