In the most un-gallery setting possible, among the power lines and our alley flower bed, full of sunflowers, we were part of an art walk this past weekend.
Not just us, it’s a town-wide, garage-based art walk! (We used our parking space.)
Here’s what we did!
Book and paper artist Betsy Zecsek made this really cool interactive piece. It’s an accordion book that folds out to become a hopscotch. AND, the pastels used to color the handmade paper transfer to the shoes of whoever is hopscotching. As they hop along, they alter the piece!
It’s always fun when people drop their guard a little and become willing to do something “silly” like hopscotching at a garage-based art walk!
Here’s a brave woman who did it, in platform heels, no less:
I modified some existing 4′ wood letters I had lying around (doesn’t everyone?) and painted them with chalkboard paint. Here’s what they looked like after the public participation:
I also debuted two of my new, larger Balance and Tension sculptures!
Fun was had by all!
