Yesterday was the KVIE Preview Party for their televised art auction, so my posse and I jumped in the car and headed up to Sacramento to represent Sonora’s budding “youth” art scene. Two other Sonora artists, Travis Logan and Chelsea Wilde, were featured in the auction as well as the framing work of All That Matters, a Twain Harte based framing shop which KVIE coincedentally had frame my piece. For those of you who haven’t seen the piece yet it is titled M’boi Tui v Tatzelwurm and depicts the Paraguyan parrott-snake god M’boi Tui engauged in mortal combat with the Swiss cat-snake cryptid known as a tatzelwurm.
I was very excited to be a part of this event as it meant that I was able to get my piece in front of SKINNER, the jurror of my category. The good news is that he thought it was good enough to make money for a non-profit organization. The bad news is that he didn’t show at the preview party so I will have to meet him later in life. I am able to gloat a little as during the event my piece received a starting bid before it will be aired on KVIE this Sunday. My piece is #44A and will be aired at 9:30PM. Chelsea’s is #46E and will be aired between 10:30 and 11PM. Travis’ is #47A and will be aired at 11PM. Remember the money goes to KVIE. You can always buy stuff from us if you want to.
Check out photos of all of the art here, because I can’t steal the images off the KVIE site and post them for you.
