Be Square (It's Hip to Be....)
What a concept! The Arlington Artists Alliance is having a show, called Be Square, currently on display at the Gallery Underground in Crystal City. 41 Artists of very different genres were given 2 8"x 8" canvas squares and let loose to create their Squares. It's actually really hard to paint in a square format (at least it was for me!) because it is so very symmetrical. So either you embrace that symmetry or you break up the symmetry. Since I am a pretty symmetrical person, I chose to stick with the symmetrical aspect for the most part. Here are my 2 pieces, Missing Persons and Outside In. If you get a chance, check out the show before the end of September.... It's amazing to see the diversity of the pieces the artists have produced considering they all started with the same guidelines and format!
I have been an artist all of my life. I can't help it. Drew on the walls in kindergarten, painted pictures in high school, went to Art School, worked as an art director, started painting again. And am loving it.
