Art for the ACO 5x5 Fundraiser

The Arts Center of the Ozarks is having their annual 5x5 art exhibition and fundraiser soon. Artists can go by the ACO and pick up one or two 5x5 inch canvases on which to create their art to donate. The artwork will then be displayed during the month of October and on November 3rd there will be an auction to raise money for programs the Arts Center puts on during the year.

These are the two pieces I finished last night to donate.
 This piece is titled "Playing by myself"
Mixed media with vintage ephemera, fabrics, and acrylic paint.

 This piece is titled "Fifth house on the left"
 Mixed media with vintage fabrics, found objects, acrylic paint, and tape.
I really loved working with all the different textures on this one.
And it turned out surprisingly like my sketch...
Minus a smoke stack, LOL.

If you live in or near the NW Arkansas area there is still time to participate in this years event...
They have extended the deadline to Sept. 30 so you better hurry.

Small pieces of art are surely a challenge, but yours are lovely. Very creative and full of interesting items.

I adore your little 5 x 5 pieces of art. They are very special and have so much detail in each of them. Your art donation should certainly help this cause.
