I’ve got some really fun news, my friends! As of yesterday, I have been invited to be a featured artist at the first RAW Natural Born Artists showcase in Tulsa on June 21.
I was so thrilled to be selected for this show, and even more so when I found out more about what RAW is all about— mainly showcasing and promoting local talent, and helping artists and performers branch out and promote themselves, which is sometimes hard to do.
I just signed on to participate yesterday and I already have a profile up on the RAW website. You can see it in all it’s fanciness HERE.
I love that while RAW in a national (and soon to be international) endeavor, each city event is run by local people who have their finger on the pulse of their own city’s art scene. That’s why it was so special for me to even be considered for it. To be honest, I rarely feel ‘hip and with it.’ I am just squirreled away in my little house making things that I personally like, and so when I find that other people like them too…well, it’s always so lovely. And now in June I’ll be part of a show featuring everything from painting to jewelry to performance art to fashion shows….now that’s fancy!
This show is called SOLSTICE and will take place June 21st at 33Forty, which is on Brookside in Tulsa. Tickets to get in to see the show are $10, and if you’d like to come, I would appreciate it so much that you purchase your ticket online through my name (Heather Sleightholm), because artists are rewarded for selling tickets to the event. I’ll also know to expect you and look forward to seeing you so we can chat and enjoy the art together!
Now I need to get busy selecting which paintings will go to the show and what new ones I’ll paint to go with them. I’m not sure yet how many I’ll be asked to present, but I know I’ll want to take as much as I can!
It’s just all very exciting, and I hope if you’re in the area and free that night, that you’ll come! It sounds like an amazing time. You can find out more about this Tulsa show HERE. And if you’re interested in being a RAW artist, you can visit their main site HERE.
Thanks so much!~ Now off for more painting…
