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 .
