September 8th will mark the annual Art on the Common showcase event where artists will put forth a multiple blend of high quality art. This juried event is sure to be a winner as different categories have been included. This makes it more of an art event as it includes a wide range of talent.
My curiosity was peaked with how the Londonderry Arts Council has opened the way for other art forms to participate in the day. I decided to participate, excited in the way this year will be different. I am looking forward to see artists and people I know from Londonderry and to meet new artists with their brand of new and unique styles.
Being part of Eagle Eyes, a community organization in Manchester, has broadened my artistic plate. Over the past four years I have painted on brick, cement, barn and garage doors. I would never have thought to attempt painting murals had I not been given the challenge through Eagle Eyes.
Now my work has grown in size. I don’t know if I could paint smaller!
Hope to see many of you on September 8th from 10-4 pm. in Londonderry on the Common. The day is sure to be full of surprises!
