One Million Masterpiece

As I was checking my email this morning I found an interesting invitation in my in-box for a project called One Million Masterpiece. The idea behind it is that one million people create a square of art that will be added together like a quilt to make one large work of art. It is open to anyone, you don't have to be an "artist", though there is some truly amazing work on there. The project is raising money for charity and bringing peopel together from all over the world.
The thing I especially like about the website is that you create online using their painting program, and anyone can replay the creation of any piece on there, which can offer an interesting peek into the creative process.
I spent the better part of the morning on my piece, mind you this is the very first entirely digital work of art I have ever done and I must say, working with a mouse is pretty clunky compared to an aresnal of paint brushes!

On a philosophical note, I find it really interesting to see what people create when they are all given the same tools, the results are so diverse!

Exhibits Exhibits

Why I have not posted about this before I don't know, but it's not too late to catch my solo show at the Spotlight Gallery. It will run through the 29th of October. The address is The Spotlight Gallery @ The Arts, 32 W. Market Street Corning, NY. Gallery hours are Mon-Fri 9-5 and by appointment.
The opening reception on the 4th was amazing, everyone was so wonderful, from the super sweet gallery staff to the enthusiastic attendees. Unfortunately the batteries in my camera were dead but I will be posting some pics of the exhibit in the near future.
I also have a piece in a group show at the George Waters Gallery at Elmira College. That show will run through November 3rd.
