June 14th Art Walk

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The Art Walk that we had on June 15, 2017 was a great success!  We had the pleasure of having a live painting demonstration in front of the building done by Bill Ball “Fireball”.
The weather cooperated and he shared his unique techniques in creating abstract art. Some of his paintings hanging are a part a new series of endangered species, in which he is donating part of the proceeds to https://m.facebook.com/AfricanWildlifeFoundation

Artist Bio for Bill Ball~Fireball

With no formal training in art, I only discovered that I was an artist when I found myself at Burning Man, a week long art and music festival in the Nevada desert. Artists were constructing and painting walls and sharing spaces. I was given a wall. I was tentative at first but threw myself into painting. “Psychedelic Cross” was the result, a large, vibrant, multicolored work… but a temporary one. I slept for a few hours and awoke to find it had been painted over. With this loss I began to revisit the recent loss of my entire family. Could I heal myself with my creativity? I picked up a one-inch brush and for hours threw paint with pain and anger, using color to process it and heal. I finished painting, stepped back and turned to see what I had created. I smiled, laughed, and cried all at once realizing I had unlocked a hidden artist. I came home and converted my living room into my new art studio.
