Lady Lucy Bones!
Good morning Sunshines! Happy Tuesday! The above pictures are of a skull, decorated with such imagination, it amazes me every time I look at it! Miss Lucy also has a very unique "story" that goes along with her, poor thing!
Aptly named, "Lady Lucy Bones," this original creation is just one of many many beautiful creations by our artists here in town and also Henderson and Las Vegas.
Faye, this particular artist extraordinaire, has participated in this "silent auction" each year and I will try and get a picture of "John," last years creation by Faye, also SO amazing! He had a top hat and quite an interesting face!
The artist will pick up a white skull and then go to town creating. They are all so very unique and it is interesting to see what their interpretation and final outcome become.
Recently Faye took me to meet Chris at The Corner Gallery and I heard all about the festivities coming up and for such a good cause too!
I will be going back soon to take more pictures of this lovely artsy Gallery! WOW, the art, the sculptures, the paintings, design!
If you ever visit our quaint little town, please please be sure to stop over to see the Gallery and say hi to Chris!
This is a MUST SEE in Boulder City for sure! There are many local artists that show there and it changes every day! Plan to "browse" and stay for a while!
The Corner Gallery, located at 1325 Arizona Street, Boulder City NV 89005, (702) 501-9219 supports "Family Promise" of Las Vegas each year in October.
From The Corner Gallery flyer, "Each year this Gallery has a silent auction that takes place in October, supporting Family Promise.
The skulls are decorated by local artists and anyone that wishes to participate, and donated back for this cause.
Family Promise partners with faith houses and community organizations and assists families of Clark County to transition from homelessness to stability and independence through compassionate shelter, guidance and education.
The Corner Gallery event will culminate in a "Day of the Dead" observance this Friday, October 28, 2011 at 6:30pm.
Highest bidder will be announced and skulls will go to their new owners. Live entertainment and psychic readings will be happening and you can bring your favourite Mexican food for the potluck too!"
For more information about Family Promise programs, you can visit their website here.
Their address is PO Box 270128, Las Vegas NV 89117-4128 (702) 638-8806.
Enjoy your day Sunshines! Hugs Kat =^.^=
