The Square Foot Art Opening


Tonight was the annual "Square Foot Art Show" from the AWOL Gallery here in Toronto. It was a blast! I got dressed up in my little polk-a-dot dress and headed out on this super muggy and hot August night to see the show.
The line up to get in went right around the block! They had a dj rockin' the tunes. So much beautiful art to look at.

Here I am with my Frida painting.


Morgan and I having fun at the show:




I even had one lady come up to me who recognized me from my youtube videos! Isn't that cool? It was great to be out with so many people. I spend so much time here at home with just the cats, that it is nice to get out and mingle once in a while.
Oh, and the painting sold! That was an extra little happy surprise for me :)

How wonderful! It looked to be a great and FUN show!!! I can't believe someone didn't pull out their copy of Artful Blogging for your autograph. I would have if I had been there! I'm sure the kitties were up to their own fun/mischief while you were out on the town.

Hi Tascha. That sounds like a fabulous exhibit, and it's super that there was such a good turnout. You look so very cute and i'm delighted but not at all surprised that your painting sold. Glad that you had such a nice night out on the town!

I love the way the pictures are exhibited. My goal one day is to have my own walls of art, "Tascha" paintings of course!! Thanks for sharing.

Tascha!

What a super neat concept!

I LOVE that the art show features work all the same size. Having all the paintings lined up in a grid pattern must've been an impressive sight!

So much variety all neatly lined up! Can you tell I like to organize things? LOL

What a fun show! And it's no surprise that your painting sold. Do all of the paintings go for the same price?
Congrats!

Thank you all so much for your comments!
Yep, all the paintings are priced at $200 each. Half goes to the gallery and the other half to the artist.
