'Drawn to You' Art Exhibit opening this Friday

'Drawn to You' is an art exhibit curated by Amandalynn, which highlights collaborations and solo expressions in fine art, photography, modelling, sculpture, and everything that happens in between.

The show opens this Friday, October 4th, 2013 from 6-10pm at Wonderland Gallery in San Francisco, CA.  Featured artists include: Amandalynn, Lady Mags, Bethany Pifer, Megan Shaffer, Henry Alfonso Navarro, Lucien Shapiro, and Robert Bowen

The inspiration for this exhibition began almost a year ago, when Amandalynn was introduced to Bethany Pifer at an art opening at Wonderland Gallery. Amanda knew right away that Bethany would be an amazing subject of inspiration for future paintings. Bethany, already a professional model, invited Amanda to collaborate on a new photoshoot with Henry Navarro. The concept was to create illustrated props, melding the ideas of photography and illustration into one final piece.

The first collaboration between photograhper, model, and artist went so well that the team decided to create an entire exhibition around the idea, including another shoot and more artists. For the second photoshoot, Amandalynn invited her painting partner, Lady Mags, to assist in the props and design. Mags brought a new fine art touch to the collaboration with her signature watercolor patterns.

'Drawn to You' is an exhibition unique in it's collaborative and artistic expressions. Creating this new work has been an incredibly inspiring experience. A special thanks to everyone assisting on this project, including our extremely talented hair and makeup artists : Sofie Lynn , Jessica Carlisle Lee , Karafina , and Suzy Tamimi .

Alynn-Mags showing at Spoke Art this coming Saturday

Lady Mags and I (aka. Alynn-Mags ) are very excited to be part of Spoke Art's newest exhibition, 'Lil Bub Art Show'. The show opens this coming Saturday, September 7th, 2013 from 5-10pm at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA. It is an art show celebrating the world's newest kitty obsession - Lil Bub .

Lady Mags and I took a little different twist on the Lil Bub theme....this piece is entitled 'Madame Bub', and is painted in watercolor and acrylic on Arches cotton rag paper. The piece is 17"x20" framed in a vintage frame from my Grandfather's collection.

To add to the feline flavor, Spoke Art will be hosting a Lil Bub meet and greet from 1-3pm at the Gallery, for more info click here
