SPOTLIGHT ON THE LIGHT CHASERS 3RD ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW
THIS WEEK WE ARE TAKING A TRIP BACK IN TIME TO JANUARY 31, 2014, THE OPENING NIGHT OF OUR LIGHT CHASERS 3RD ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW.
It was a rainy night, and no one expected a crowd to turn out in the chilly, wet weather. But we were wrong, we had 1500 guests attend the opening night of our 3 Shows.
Along with our 3rd Annual Members Show, we had our 2nd PAINT SARASOTA! ARTISTS PAINT PARADISE SHOW, and our 1st DEMO ARTISTS (MASTER ARTISTS/
FEATURED ARTISTS) SHOW. The shows were held on the 3rd floor of the Hub, a high rise, modern building on Fruitville Road in Sarasota.
The theme that year was "ART IN THE CITY". The Show itself was hung in the hallways of the 3rd floor of the Hub. There were 5 foot Topiary Trees with brightly colored ribbons swirled around them in 5 gallon paint buckets and l0 foot tall Paint Brushes with Signs designating each show area.
Flowers were planted in containers everywhere to give the feeling of a city park. A long table was full of sweet and savory delights and wine was poured from the bar.
We had live music during the show with smooth jazz filling in the band's breaks. Over 100 artists participated and 150 paintings were hung to view!
The Paint Out was Judged by Morgan Samuel Price and 10 awards were given out. The beautiful raffle painting that year "Fish Boatworks", as seen below, was donated by Hodges Soileau.
We all enjoyed a very wonderful evening of Fine Art, Good Food, Beautiful Music & Great Company!
Next week we will revisit the 4th Annual Members Show, the first of our Shows to be held at Phillippi Estate Park.
In the meantime, PLEASE KEEP YOUR BRUSHES BUSY PAINTING SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY FOR OUR 10TH ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW!
REMEMBER THE SUCCESS OF OUR SHOW DEPENDS ON YOU PARTICIPATING IN IT!!!
TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE AND STAY WELL!
