Doodle or Die!

What a busy Summer and Fall! I am still in the middle of a bunch of projects, but things are progressing. artroulette collaborations have been on display in the Plant Zero Project Space Hallway Galleries since the opening on October 24th. Things went smoother than I expected. Most of the artists seemed to enjoy themselves and all the teams created something wonderful!

The raffle drawing will be held on Friday, November 28 starting at 6pm. Harry Kollatz Jr. is hosting the event. Kollatz will select 25 raffle tickets and assist in the spinning of the wheel of fortune to determine which collaborative artwork has been won.

Check out the webpage for images of all the pieces that were created:

Team 18. Michael A. Pierce, Paul Teeples, Keithley Pierce, Heidi Rugg

Opening the same night, "Exquisite Abnormalities" was wonderfully attended. I sold "Desirable Catch" to Jennifer Kirby of Crossroads Art Center. She said it reminded her of being in Greece. Thanks, Jenni! I'm looking forward to our artist talk on November 23rd, 2pm. I will be joined by Jessica Sims and Roman Zelgatas.

The next show I will be in will be the artspace Members' Biennial. I have one large piece that I have been working on and would really like to finish it if possible before the opening on November 28th. I have been posting updates on it's progress on instagram and facebook.

I've also been working on an Indiegogo campaign for "The Doodlists" art exhibition at artspace next Spring. The campaign went live on Halloween and I it is set to end on December 2nd. So far, we've collected 14% of our goal, but I think things are started to get heated up. I'm optimistic that we will reach or exceed our goal!
