6 x 6 x 2011 Entry

My Etsy shop has been taking a slight backseat to teaching this month (budget and scheduling season), BUT I did take the time to submit my entry into the Rochester Contemporary Art Center 6x6x2011: Global show. I love tons of tiny, colorful things together on a wall, so I jumped on the chance to do this latest installment of this show.


I created a special 6"x6" matchstick painting, Spring III, for the show.

Here are all of the official details from http://www.roco6x6.org/ (see also the application):


6x6 began as a small fund-raising project, but has grown into an international art phenomenon. Last year over 5,000 artworks from 43 US States and 22 Countries were entered in this exhibition!

6x6x2011: Global is the fourth exhibition of thousands of original artworks, made and donated by celebrities, international & local artists, designers, college students, youths, and YOU. Each artwork must be 6x6 square inches and signed only on the back, to be exhibited anonymously. All artworks will be for sale to the public for $20 each (at RoCo and online) to benefit RoCo.
Artist names will be revealed to the buyer upon purchase and all artworks remain on display through July 10, 2011.
