Collaborative art is usually pretty cool.  When done properly, it brings together the best attributes of two or more artists in one work.  So, what’s this gotta do with a hill of beans?  Well, it turns out that we’ve got some collaborative works, from some of the Valley’s most acclaimed artists that were created for one of our town’s favorite causes.

A dozen birds were created out of welded metal by sculptor Luis Varela-Rico (who used Japanese origami as his inspiration), and were then handed-off to such artists as Shawn Hummel, Jerry Misko, David Ryan, and Michael Wardle for painting.

The finished painted-sculptures were commissioned especially for October 19th's Harvest for Hope benefitting Communities in Schools of Nevada, and will be unveiled at an exclusive preview event, on October 4th, at the Brett Wesley Gallery, in fabulous Downtown Las Vegas.

Refreshments are being provided by Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada and Vintner Grill; so, come on down, have a drink, grab a nosh, and buy a bird to better our schools!

And don’t forget about the Harvest for Hope festival, on October 19th.

[Editor's Note: I'd intended to run an article about Project Dog House, but due to the time-sensitive nature of this post, I've decided to push the doggie piece to later in the week.  If you don't care, well, that's just ruff!]
