Art Revolution Taipei 2012

I’ve been offline for the past couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean the painting has stopped.  In fact I am starting to get overwhelmed with how many finished, in progress, and blank canvases that are sitting all around me right now.  I’m not used to this, but soon things will start to move.  Allow me to explain one of the projects I have coming up!

I have been invited to participate in Art Revolution Taipei for 2012 (March 22-25).  So excited about it, and this is what has been taking up most of my time lately.  A new series is also in the works, and the first 10 will be heading over to Taiwan to make their debut.  This particular series includes a girl in each piece, and I love love love how they have been turning out.  Some of these will be made into limited edition signed prints so watch facebook for release dates.  Sneak peek close-up of one of them for my blog followers 🙂

In addition to the above mentioned series, I will also be sending 5 of my starry sky paintings (or as some like to call, the swirly skies).  These have already been completed, so be looking for feature pics to show up on facebook soon.

Here are a few pictures from A.R.T. 2011.  According to their website, last year featured 1200 artworks by 203 artists from 22 countries.  The number of visitors to the show reached upward 26,681 people according to the records at Taiwan World Trade Center where A.R.T. was held.

And finally, the pieces I am sending will also be featured at the sponsoring gallery who invited me at X-Power Gallery in Taipei.  (photo below courtesy of the gallery).  Once all these pieces are finished and shipped, I’ll tell you all about a solo show I have coming up next summer here in the states!  Have a great weekend… -Cindy

Art Revolution Taipei 2012 (A.R.T. 2012) features leading and emerging galleries and artists around the globe. Hundreds of artists, ranging from the established to the latest generation of emerging figures will be represented in the show’s multiple sections. In May, more than 26 thousand art lovers visited and enjoyed A.R.T. 2011.
The exhibition will include time-tested and cutting-edge paintings, sculptures, drawings, installation, photographs, and prints. Art Revolution Taipei 2012 is expected to be crowded with all types of people including art collectors, art dealers, artists, curators and other art enthusiasts. An even more important spot is that the organizer will invite hundreds of highly renowned and influential collectors to attend, which would certainly guarantee to bring great attention to the participating artists and their works.”

Student Art – A Thank-You Video :)

Students from Wellesbourne School, a primary school in Liverpool England, were given an art project where they were to interpret an artists work through paintings and digital media. A few of my art pieces were selected for the study, and the teacher sent me an e-mail to show me all of their artwork. I made this video as a response back to them to let them know I appreciated all their hard work.

YouTube Video: Cindy Paints “By My Side”

So this is my first painting video. I edited it to the ludicrous speed setting (ha ha) so instead of having to sit here for an hour, you only have to have 3.5 minutes of patience. I’m new to video editing, so hopefully these will only get better with time. A special thanks to my husband Bob for letting me use one of his recordings!!
