Queens’ fastest portrait painter will be stealing the scene in the Living Room from 4PM – 9PM. All art will be sold $20 to W guests and $40 to outside guests OR have the option to be contributed to a larger project called Art of the People’s Heart. This project will be showcased in an upcoming W Artist in Residence exhibit.
Art of the People’s Heart is a project launched by Artist Extraordinarie1 (Queens’ Fastest Portrait Painter) on October 5th. Her goal is to see how long it takes and what happens when she sets out to complete (100) 10-minute portraits in ink, charcoal, and acrylic paint of strangers she encounters. The Art of the People’s Heart is a quest to give anyone and everyone a chance to be a part of the creative process by having their portrait painted regardless of money. Those who want to purchase can, and by doing so support an artist’s career. The portraits that are not purchased will be exhibited in a showcase, and all the strangers who had their portraits painted will be invited to see the culmination.
