Yes, call me crazy. (It probably wouldn't be the first time.) Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment. Maybe I'm up for a challenge. Maybe I want to run up my coffee tab even further. Or maybe I just need to get out of the house and away from my kids' (bedtime) dramas.
Regardless, I just signed up for
Cell Block 316: Artist Lockdown and Art Show
at The Soundry. Starting this Friday night at 6 p.m., I'll be joining a group of like-minded, restless, masochistic, competitive, caffeine-addicted artists who will agree to be locked in The Soundry for 24 hours -- the amount of time we'll have to complete an original work for the venue's next exhibit. In fact, the art reception will take place at 8:00 p.m. Saturday night, a mere 2 hours after the lockdown ends.
Paint? Canvas? Fiber? Recycled materials? Beads? Wire? I don't really know yet, but the result will be interesting. I'll be taking notes and photos throughout (or at least until I fall asleep in my palette), so you can expect a blog post afterwards about the experience.
Wish me luck!
