Last Thursday was the re-opening of Pony Club Gallery, after a month of reorganizing and cleaning. The gallery looked stupendous, featured a new mural painted by our six members, and we also debuted our new show, “Portraits”!
The concept was simple: artists were paired up and tasked to paint or draw each other. Some of us were couples, some friends, and some acquaintances. The results were lovely, and our show featured some of the best artists in town! Props to member Jennifer Parks for curating such a great show.
I was delighted to be teamed up with my pal Brooke Weeber. Before the show we refused to look at each other’s pieces – and we were pretty surprised by the results!
Ok, ok – so I skipped about 1,000 steps there (sometimes it’s hard to remember to document the whole process), but what started out as a little doodle in my sketchbook turned into full-fledged Lady Warrior goodness.
What’s even better is that even though we didn’t see each other’s pieces until the opening, this happened:
WE’RE BOTH WEARING SNAKE NECKTIES!!! Ahhhhhhhhh!!
Be sure to check out the rest of the lovely portraits over at Pony Club’s facebook page, and then head on over to the Pony Club website. We’ve got a new artist interview blog feature, and this month we’re featuring couples to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
