Helping a new friend Get Out The Word:

Let’s make art together…
posted: November 24th, 2010 by Luna

…while exploring our relationship with money!

I’m writing a book called Wild Money: A Right-Brained, Knock-Your-Socks-Off Approach to Loving Your Relationship with Money (working title).
After looking high and low for books on personal finance written for non-linear creative people, I finally realized I’d have to do it myself. I want to create a book filled with the artwork of “creatives” from around the world.

Want to play?

Anyone can participate. There is no prerequisite other than desire. I envision a community sharing our insights and attitudes; histories and dreams of how money has woven through our lives; tales of helping, healing, hurting, reconnecting, disconnecting, saving, destroying and otherwise wildly impacting our tender, brilliant, expressive selves.

I have a short time frame for this project, so I’ll need all artwork by Dec 15, 2010. If you are willing and able to share your art (and maybe some writing if you’re so inclined), please click here for more information.

I’ve only just begun to explore the vast communities on the web and need some help linking-in. So I’d appreciate you passing this on to as many people, lists, groups and social media feeds as possible.

Thank you in advance!

My artwork presenting at Pegasus Gallery

My artwork is on view at PEGASUS FRAME STUDIO & GALLERY, 341 SW Second Street in Corvallis, OR 97333
As is the intrique of the Drebing Collection, all featured amid the dense collection of true artistic talent in the Mid-Willamette Valley, in this hometown holiday reception tonight from 6 to 9pm. *Come downtown to join us in a delightful fall evening celebration of the local arts.

Hometown Holiday Season: Drebing Collection Reception Tonight

"Nearly 30 years after his death, sculptor Earl Drebing is getting his first big show.

Titled “She Brought Us His Gifts,” the exhibition will run through December at Pegasus Gallery, 361 S.W. Second St. The gallery will host a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, November 18, 2010.

The show features more than two dozen finished sculptures and a number of fragments.

Drebing, a self-taught California artist who died in 1983, never had a major showing of his work during his lifetime. His sculptures went into storage after his death and only resurfaced in 2009, when his stepdaughter, Corvallis-area resident Jewels Drebing, brought some samples of his work to Pegasus.

Many of the works are highly realistic masks or heads executed from plaster life masks. What makes them unique is Drebing’s artistic process, which he developed himself.

Using the plaster masks as a framework, Drebing would overlay them with a mixture of wood shavings and airplane glue to create the finished sculptures, many of which have large, elaborate bases of carved or inlaid wood.

Drebing’s work was the subject of a lengthy article in the July 18 Gazette-Times and a subsequent documentary film that has aired several times on Channel 29, the Corvallis public-access cable channel. The film will air several times this month, with showings at 2 p.m. today, 2 and 9:30 p.m. Thursday, 10:30 a.m. Saturday, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, and 12:30 and 5:30 p.m. Monday." *This article was originally printed in the GT/Corvallis, OR, Tuesday, November 16, 2010
