Not ‘Square’ Paintings – Not ‘Square’ Artists
It’s artists doing 1 painting a day for 30 consecutive days!
In the bleak cold months of January 2015, a group of artists from Montauk to Montclair joined creative forces and took on a ‘Daily Painting Challenge’: To paint 30 paintings in 30 days! Local artist, Aubrey Grainger sparked the idea, built online camaraderie (Facebook) and a successful artists’ challenge was born. It was a perfect marriage of technology and art!
The outcome? This creative ‘cabin-fevered’ community of artists successfully produced dozens of new pieces each. BEST OF 30 SQUARED exhibition will display their best works. Now it’s your turn: These artists challenge you to find your favorites from the rich variety (over 85) pieces on the gallery walls!
