Bad Art Show

I have made a few mentions that we were excited for an upcoming Bad Art Show. Well, it finally happened this weekend. Saturday night was the night. We headed downtown to Corridor Gallery to check out the entries in this awesome event!

Eric, all jazzed up about the bad art show

We found some bad art in thrift stores and submitted it, along with many other folks. I was talking to one of the gallery owners and he mentioned that one painting had been brought in by the artist. Apparently she was willing to accept the fact that she had made some bad art. If only I had kept some of my early works around to enter....there was one with mermaids (made when I was 14 or 15) that comes to mind.

I entered this piece found at the Goodwill.

Eric entered this piece which he found at a local thrift.

The opening was on Saturday night and it was great! People showed up in droves to look over the bad art, placing bids on the pieces. The winning bidder had the choice to save or destroy the work. Eric and I bid on a black velvet number that had the grim reaper riding a motorcycle, we were outbid---BOOO!

The crowd. Can you find us?

The news showed up. Cordelia later appeared on the 10 o'clock news, or so we've been told....she's gonna be big I tell you, huge.

Check out the giant cowboy and then the mini cowboys in the background.I love it!

The show was so much fun. I hope they make it an annual event, as I want some time to really hunt for my next entry.

Looks like you 3 have too much fun! I wonder if this will go well in Ottawa Canada or is it a American type of thing to do? Sounds like total FUN!
