Free Art Friday Exhibit: FAF



I submitted these two pieces (reverse painting and collage on plastic) for the Free Art Friday Exhibition July 20th in SouthSea UK that's being organized by MyDogSighs. I am part of the Free Art Friday Flickr group and I was delighted to participate (keep your fingers crossed the US mail delivers in time).
Here is a link to an an article in The Portsmouth News titled "Takeaway art's a delight".


To see examples of the jafagirls free art in Yellow Springs, Ohio, check out our slide show.


Blush! Deezden gave me this award and want to give a BIG thanks :) There are several bloggers I would like to pass it along too because I think they are brilliant. I never tire of visiting Art News Blog (always posts interesting info about the art world and not afraid to touch upon issues that sometimes provoke a visceral response), Failed Painter whose imagination and art (writing, poetry, photography, video, collage, painting) always intrigues and inspires. Margot Potter, what can I say about this lassie, she is fun, she is a creative wild woman and she is cool. Olga the Traveling Bra, I mean really this bra is an original, bodacious, audacious, and mischievous piece of cloth. sheesh, I never thought I would make a bosom buddy blog pal with a BRA! who knew! Lone Beader because her beadwork is very original and technically brilliant. Watching how each piece progresses and how they came about is fascinating. Laketrees blog is chock o block of interesting info, her art, links and she is a huge supporter of other artists (and that is really appreciated). Pollocksthebollocks because not only does he have examples of his beautiful abstract work, his blog template makes it easy to explore the many wonderful articles he has on famous and not so famous artists, art reviews and news. Art For Housewives just celebrated it's 5th year blogging, and I have been visiting for a while now. If you are interested in seeing all the brilliant ways things can be recycled into art, then this blog is a must with its gazillion links and tutorials.

Of the two works the skeleton composition really speaks. Not to say I don't like the other, but the upper left combination draws the eye, Brilliant. Best
Thanks for the wonderful sampling of links. I enjoyed the visit.

The "Word" from Jafabrit widget is off the hook!
Well done! Again!Maybe , when our big show is over, I can persuade some of my crew to do a similar thing. One or two say it's a fab idea, but no one's doing anything!

BTW..I've moved my blog

Casey, not sure what you mean?? What word and what hook?
JafaBrit's Art said…

First of all thankyou--this is a sincere thanks, given all the deserving people you could have chosen; I am honoured. Secondly can I say what an inspiration your blog and the artwork is to someone trying to wrest control back in their life.
WoW! THANK YOU so much! To be listed in the company of so many gifted and talented people is quite an honor for this ol' bra'wd! :) mmmmm-wah!
Casey Klahn said…
You silly. "Off the Hook" is colloquial for good. Yes, I meant the voki. It makes me laugh and laugh.

Congrats on the museum tour group show @ Your Papers. Very cool.
