Elevating Art

Elevating Art was the latest art show at Brews in downtown Eureka Springs. This was a really fun event. The curator, John Rankine bought a bunch of thrift store art and asked us to pick one and reimagine it. I was given this mirror which was a challenge, as the original painting needed to be touched up before I could start reimagining it. As soon as I saw this mirror I knew it needed to be the Yellow Brick Road. The pieces were then placed on display at Brews for several weeks to be auctioned off to help get the elevator fixed at the Eureka Springs Carnegie Public Library.



Elevating Art At Brews is the next exhibition and fundraiser for our Carnegie Library, at BREWS with an opening reception and silent auction, on Wednesday, Nov. 29th from 5 to 8 p.m. “Local artists were invited to choose from a plethora of thrift store art provided by curator John Rankine and to reimagine and embellish the thrift store treasures, by adding their own creative touch. ”
