Challenging artists to think outside the box, while giving them a chance to “flaunt” their talent, FLAUNT: 2012 is this area’s most unique exhibition and artwalk. Each finalist was selected by a juried panel, and represents a diversity of artistic styles and genres.  During the exhibition, one FLAUNT artist is hosted in a downtown merchant store or restaurant, with pieces of their original work for show and sale. All 27 artists are busy completing new pieces for their exhibit, and raising the bar on their own creativity.  Each has been challenged to make a dress from recycled elements donated by local corporate sponsors.  These businesses have gathered items that the artists will now use to sew, weave, bead, or paint, making a one-of-a kind wearable dress that will be unveiled at FLAUNT’s opening night event, Sept.  7 at 5:30 p.m. After the opening, the dresses will be prominently featured in each FLAUNT merchant’s display window.  Patrons are invited to stroll through each store to see the recycled dresses, and learn more about each sponsors own recycling efforts and purchase new pieces of original art to add to their own collection.  FLAUNT artwork will remain in the stores available for purchase through September 29, the close of the exhibition. To find out more about Flaunt related activities, or to view the list of participating artists, log onto the Center’s website at thomasvillearts.org.

"Eggs to Ovaries" To benefit Ovarian Cancer Research
 As one of  over 20 Alabama artists, I donated my time and effort to paint and create a one-of-a-kind eight inch ostrich egg for this very special fund raising event.  Unlike other art events, this one was uniquely different. The Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation held the "Eggs to Ovaries" silent auction on Saturday, May 9, 2009, at the Concord Building, 2100 3rd Avenue North, Birmingham, AL.  The sale of the painted ostrich eggs brought in nearly $6000.  This money will be used to directly fund ovarian cancer research at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.   I am thrilled to have been one of the artists involved in making this event a terrific success.
