mystery art exhibition + sale | an elementary school fundraiser

1art

my girlfriends and i created the mystery art exhibition + sale to raise funds for our children’s elementary school. the mystery art exhibition + sale celebrates the arts by bringing together and featuring established + amateur brooklyn artists alongside 5th grade students. the event features hundreds of equally priced, anonymous 6×6″ pieces and is an opportunity to bring art to our entire parent community. the buyer only learns who created their piece after their purchase and the money raised is given directly to the pta.

i am blown away by all of the talented adults + children who have graciously donated to this fundraiser! the mystery art exhibition + sale is in 3 days and i can hardly contain myself!

Modern_Ink_Magazine_Dixie_Pixel_06

modern ink mag was an online lifestyle publication that placed an emphasis on uncovering, highlighting and exposing the clever, adventurous, artistic and eclectic side of life.

our impression feature was unique to modern ink mag as we highlighted lyrics by artists through our own creative interpretation.  little talks, by of monsters and men, continues to inspire me and will always hold a special place in my heart.

i don’t like walking around this old and empty house so hold my hand, i’ll walk with you my dear. the stairs creak as i sleep it’s keeping me awake, it’s the house telling you to close your eyes.

and some days i can’t even trust myself, it’s killing me to see you this way. ’cause though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore.

there’s an old voice in my head that’s holding me back, well tell her that i miss our little talks. soon it will be over and buried in our past, we used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love.
