Opening & Live Painting Event
On Opening Day, Sunday July 1st, Those who attended our Opening & Live Painting Event settled into rows of chairs to watch the synchronous, live-painting of a huge work of art by multiple artists. Four regional members of the Global Art Project, or ‘GAP,’ an international collaborative-artists collective, and one non-affiliated Charlotte artist converged on ClearWater Artist Studios and spent three hours working together to create large, colorful mixed-media artworks on the Studios’ “Giant Easels.” The resulting work, “Frags to Riches,” is by artists Christopher Padgett Hunnicutt (Raleigh, NC); Mikel Frank (Charlotte, NC); Claire Schauseil (Charlotte); Nancy Perry (Andersen, SC); Sandee Johnson (Asheville, NC) as well as Frank’s 5-year old nephew, Liam Borges. See photos of it as well as video segments of the artists painting, in Discussion comments at the FaceBook Event Page for the Opening!
