3rd Friday artwalk and Chatham Camera Club exhibit

At the 3rd Friday Artwalk in Siler City, I participated in a joint exhibition by the Chatham Camera Club and local gallery artists. The "Double Exposure" exhibit allowed painters to choose a photo from the photographers to interpret and then the painters interpretation and the photographers' work were hung together. It was a really cool exhibit and some photos were interpreted in paintings, and even sculpture and glass!
My painting was an odd custom size, and the frame I had to fit it was damaged so I went with the gallery wrap canvas with painted sides which was allowed for the show. It gives a sort of more contemporary look which the art community in Siler City seems to like.
