Opportunities for visual artists, fiber freaks and Native playwrights
Visual artists who’ve been searching for a new medium should jump at the chance to decorate their very own bowling pin. Local attorney, author, artist and animal rescuer Ed Goodman has put out a call to artists who’d like to try their hand at something unique while helping to raise funds for Second Chance Animal Rescue and New Mexico Dogs Deserve Better. He’s offering one of 50 “funky, vintage, wooden, full-sized bowling pins,” as well as marble and wooden bases, for participating artists to transform into works of art with paint, textiles, found objects, clay, mosaics or anything else they can come up with. The pins will be sold at a future gala event, with all proceeds going to the critter-assistance organizations. In the past, Goodman organized a fundraiser for Watermelon Mountain Ranch where portraits of homeless dogs were sold at the annual Fur Bowl, so he’s hip to helping animals with art. Deadline for finished pieces is September 1, 2013. Contact Goodman at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your bowling pin.
