So happy I could participate in the Twitter Art Exhibit 2021. If you’ll read through my past blog posts, you’ll see I’ve taken part in several annual exhibits in previous years and in fact was able to attend when the exhibit took Orlando by storm in 2014!
Twitter Art Exhibit was started in 2010 by charismatic artist and author David Sandum of Norway. His simple idea was to put out a call to fellow artists on Twitter to submit postcard-sized original works of art to raise funds for a charity. That first year it raised funds from the sale of the artworks from 260 artists from 24 countries to purchase 221 new children’s books for the Moss, Norway local public library.
David’s worthwhile mantra: “Through art we can change the world.” and he’s right, in its 11th year, this organization has contributed to so many worthwhile causes and gained participation from multitudes of artists. This year it is likely to have more than 800 artists from around the world. The opening is July 3 at Cheltenham Racecourse in Cheltenham, UK.
I’m happy “Owl in the Wood” is going to a worthy cause, but sorry I can’t offer you any accessories, prints or other items from this painting per the TAE ethos. BUT, if you love this painting and are a fan of owls, reach out to me in case I have a slot open for a commissioned artwork to meet your precise needs. I don’t take a lot of commissions, but do block off time each quarter for a limited number.
