Artworks for the Cure 2013

Blown Away!! That is all I can say!! A fantastic ride through what was some amazing art.  A whole hanger full of talant and something you do not see everyday. The vibrance, energy and creativity just jumped off the walls!! I am so glad i didn’t miss this. All of the artists had such unique stories and most stopped me in my tracks!! I took very few photos as my Canon EOS-M battery died suddenly!! can’t believe I didn’t have a spare… anyway, I will try to feature some of the art and link to the artist sites. One of the many great artists featured was Lluis Barba. There were several of her marvelous works on show and my photos below just doesn’t do them justice. These are magnificent works that captured us and took us into the art itself!!  Check out Lluis Barba at Cynthia Corbett’s Gallery @ Cynthia
