2012 Lansdale Fun A Day was a huge success

The 2012 Lansdale Fun A Day Show at the Third and Walnut was an amazing time. Artists created something everyday during the month of January and showed it then in a huge group show with live music from, Blaze, 


and Brian Medlin. 

The music kept people entertained after they had a chance to walk around and view the artwork.  Here is the Preshow interview that attracted a few of the Patrons. I was surprised at how successful this show was. Most artists sold artwork or at the very least made connections with new patrons. Besides showing our Fun A Day projects, we held a millionaire’s auction in which patrons bought tickets for $1 and entered the raffle to buy our artwork. 

That was a lot of fun and will have to be utilized again. There was also a live painting created by Anthony T Forbes, Ben Robinson and Kim Saddel. I had never seen a group of people create a painting together, I want to see more of this. After the painting was completed it was auctioned off right on stage, it was very exciting! I made many connections with artists interested in doing more shows like this.  Lansdale Patch featured a follow up story/photo gallery declaring it a Huge Success!  Next year's Fun A Day show should be a blast, thank you for coming out and getting involved in the arts, if you want to be involved next year, you should.If you participated this year, I hope this has motivated you to have a very creative year.

Lansdale Fun A Day SHow 2012

Hello everyone,
The Lansdale Fun A Day Group show will be next Friday, Friday February 3rd 2012, 8pm at Lansdale's 3rd and Walnut. We will have musical performances from the talented Brian Medlin.
 There will also be an artsy performance from the Art Clash group Sam and Corey
There may be other musicians playing as well but I'm still in the planning of last minute details.

For all artists involved: drop off of art work will be on Wednesday February 1st at the Third and Walnut beginning at 5pm through 9pm. Don't feel pressured to have 31 pieces of artwork, bring what you have completed and feel proud that you have accomplished so much. There will be display racks and tables available. If you are using a table, you may want to bring a table cloth since none will be provided. The artwork does not need to be framed but do consider how you will hang it. The owner does not want anything attached to his walls, the racks will have hooks and clips to use. There will be zero commission taken on any artwork sold. I will accept contributions towards the rental of the racks if anyone would like to help off set that cost. Hopefully this month of art has set your art machine into motion for the year.
Please e-mail me or message me on Face Book if you have any questions.
