I was one of 27 artists chosen to be part of a local art show at the Spitzer Art Center in Harrisonburg, VA. The show is called 6x6x30 where the artists were to complete 30 pieces of art in 30 days and each piece of art had to be 6 x 6 inches in size to hang on the wall. I was thrilled when I found out that I was chosen to participate in this unique show. Being a photographer, I decided that I would take, edit and create 30 photos of random people (and pets) in the local Harrisonburg and Rockingham County area. I love people so I decided to walk up to random people on the street and in local businesses and chat with them a little about themselves and the project and ask them if I could take their picture. I loved every minute of this project! I chose to finish each photo in black and white focusing on my subject’s eyes. I am intrigued by the saying “Eyes are the Windows to the Soul”. This is the space where your true identity dwells and allows others to see your light shining dim or bright. The opening for the show was March 6 and we had a terrific turnout for the show. All of the art in the show was amazing and I am not sure how some of the other artists completed what they did in 30 days. Some of the paintings were incredible! Enjoy some of my photos that are in the show followed by some photos of the actual opening of the show.
Here are some photos of the actual show opening on March 6th.
