Hang Eight

Uploaded: May 19, 2016


In my August 19, 2015, posting, “Adult Ed,” I chronicled a trAction Painting event held in my garage. To briefly recap: a group of adults employed a variety of wheeled vehicles—scooters, skates, bikes, trike, and rollers—to create a 9 x 5-foot painting. I then cut the painting into eight sections—one for each participating individual or couple. After stretching the eight resulting canvases, I gave one to each recipient.

The majority of the people who created the canvas are members of the Mount Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church in Walnut Creek. The church has allotted us part of its exhibit space, where the painting now hangs and will for the next six weeks.

Thanks to MDUUC for giving us the space. And thanks to John Hopper and Dee Simmons for helping me mount the exhibit, and to Dee for organizing it.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

I love your work, but I was too lazy to participate you your event. I have one of the pieces from another event. You are so creative!
