IAMKXNDNESS at Burnet Gallery

"I AM KXNDNESS is an art show in which money is of no value. All of the artworks being shown will be available only by performing acts of kindness – ranging from playing with animals at a shelter to volunteering at a nursing home to assisting a gallery during open hours. Each work of art will have a designated kindness chosen by the artist. To “purchase” the works the patron will put their name into a bowl next to the work of art they are wishing to obtain. At the end of the evening a name will be drawn from each bowl and that is the person who will receive the artwork once the designated act of kindness is completed."

My painting, "Lucid", will be available for the low low price of: 
Volunteering to deliver meals for Open Arms. Sign up for a delivery route on the day of your choice. Open Arms will load you up with enough food for several clients, you’ll get a friendly hello from the staff as well as directions for your route. After delivering food to 3–6 clients, you’ll return the delivery bags to Open Arms.

How it works:

6pm: Event starts! You will enter through the hotel on 9th street. Fulton beer has generously provided valet parking! You will be given a bag when you enter the gallery from Fulton Beer. Each bag will include a couple goodies, 5 tickets and a list of the artwork and associated acts of kindness.
You can use your tickets to put towards the act of kindness you are willing to do in exchange for the artwork. You can put all of your tickets toward a specific piece to increase your odds or spread them throughout the different artworks. You can only "win" one piece of art in total.

8pm: We will start drawing names and announcing winners. MUST be present to win. If your name is called, you will head over to the administrative table and proceed to "check out" by providing your contact information. We will follow-up and coordinate the acts of kindness with you to ensure a smooth process.
10pm: "I AM PARTY" (after party) presented by Fulton beer at Marin Restaurant & Bar (downstairs) at the Le Méridien Chambers hotel.

Did I mention- FREE COCKTAILS and appetizers by Le M√©ridien Chambers from 6-7?!

I am KXNDNESS is the brainchild of Sarah Edwards. The exhibition is curated by Jesse Draxler.

I LOVE THIS IDEA and I'm honored to participate in this show.
