Yaz's 1st Art Show!
It all began a few weeks ago with an email I received from the art organization, RAW All Natural Artists. The email included information about the organization, as well as their back story, and an invitation to submit my work to their upcoming Holiday Rawk event was also presented. They had found me through my art Instagram page + I guess they must've liked what they saw! I immediately jumped on the opportunity + submitted my work, which led to me being in their art show! It's funny because a few days before I had received the email I had saw their "Call to Artists" ad on Craigslist, which I had thought about replying to but was hesitant! As it was fate took a hold + got them in touch with me + I couldn't be more thrilled about this opportunity to get my name out there + to rub elbows with my fellow local artists!
Now to the work part of it all! I was chosen to exhibit my art but I have to sell 20 tickets by 12/3 in order to show it at no cost. Tickets are $15 apiece + have to be purchased prior to the event. (Tickets may be purchased after 12/3 but they won't go towards the 20 I must sell) Tickets can be purchased through this link that is specific to just my ticket sales:
There will be a link on the top of my RAW profile that says "Buy Tickets For This Artist" which is where you'll wanna go. This event is 21+ only and cocktail attire is required, but no need to get too fancy they just don't want to see shorts and flip flops! It's fun to play dress up once in a while anyways :) So far there are 4 other 'visual artists', 5 photographers, 5 musicians, 6 fashionistas, 3 hair/makeup artists, 1 performing artist + a DJ...talk about a room full of talent!
Thought I'd share a little more about the host of this event, the art organization RAW + what to expect to see at the show! From their website...
"WHAT IS RAW?
RAW:natural born artists is an international independent arts organization that hand-selects and spotlights independent creatives in visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, photography, models and performing art.
RAW's mission is to provide up-and-coming artists of all creative realms with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity so that they might be seen, heard and loved. RAW educates, connects and exposes emerging artists in over 60 artistic communities across the United States, Australia, Canada and the U.K. through monthly showcase events. Join us in celebrating the work of these artists.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
RAW events are multi-faceted artistic showcases. Each event features a film screening, musical performance, fashion show, art gallery, performance art and a featured hairstylist and makeup artist. These artists are all local, hand-picked talent who have been chosen to feature at RAW.
RAW events feature a cash bar for cocktails while you enjoy the night. Dress code is cocktail attire, so dress the occasion and get ready for an artistic circus of creativity!"
This is seriously a dream come true for me!! + I'm kind of thinking of it as a birthday present to myself + for myself as the event is being held just 2 days after my birthday! :) If you're in the Sacramento area I hope you can make it out to this awesome art event!
Live + Love Art!
