For the Love of Art
Visual Art Exchange is hosting it's 26th Annual Live & Silent Auction at the beautiful Raleigh Marriott tonight starting at 6pm.
If you are one of the 400 or so lucky ticket holders, then I will look forward to seeing you there tonight. I've spared my husband the hassle of accompanying me to this swanky evening. He hates these kind of social events, especially if it means he has to dress up. Instead I am joining the lovely and uber-talented Kiki Farish (who happens to have also won First Place for the juried aspect of this event). You can see all the work that was donated (including my two figure drawings and Kiki's prize winning triptych) by viewing VAE's Flickr site here.
Unlike my husband, I do like playing dress-up occasionally. Unfortunately though, the dress in my closet that I had in mind that would be perfect for this event is now way too big! I guess that is a good thing, but at the same time, I wish I had thought to take it out and try it on sooner than yesterday. Since my sewing skills are very sub-par these days, I am off to the mall on a rainy day, instead of drawing like I wanted to. I knew I should have skipped more gym sessions...
