Whether you’re a collector, an art lover, or an aspiring artist, 100 Drawings in 100 Days is an art exhibition not to be missed!
Sunshine Coast-based internationally acclaimed artist de Shan, showcases her impeccable depictions of 100 pop culture and movie icons, fairy tale favourites, and historical figures at Crawdaddy’s, 18 Hastings St, in Noosa Heads, on Friday the 13th November, 2015. The silent bidding runs from 6:00 PM - 7:40 PM, and the 100 subjects this year range from Freddy Krueger from the late Wes Craven’s ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ to the cast from ‘Game of Thrones’, and from several of the Dr. Who’s and their companions to Gollum and other fantastical characters from ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
“This won’t be your average exhibition,” de Shan says of the unusual nature of the show. “I want to steer away from a formal setting for these annual shows as the pieces are eclectic in nature but definite conversation pieces - something to chat about with good friends over cocktails with amazing music from the house DJ, while placing silent auction bids”.
Each of the drawings is matted to a standard 11”x14” and hung for display on the night for the silent auction. The reserve price on every drawing will start at $100 with bids going up in $5 increments.
“A percentage of the sales will be donated to Redkite, a charity supporting children with cancer,” she says, “as it’s important for me to give to a charity in which I believe and respect. My father died of cancer when I was quite young and I would love to help a child live a long and healthy life”.
de Shan, an internationally renowned artist and former gallery owner, has earned her Masters of Fine Art degree from the University of Oklahoma School of Art, and describes herself as a paint-slinging maven with a penchant for capturing personality and sass in her art.
“This year we have a few added surprises,” she says smugly. “The HooHaa horror car will be at the event, parked outside for people to enjoy all the many facets of this amazing work of horror art on wheels. The huge flat screen TV in the boot will be looping the images from the exhibition as well as a video of deShan doing her drawings while playing some appropriately-themed horror music for the Friday the 13th event which will also be a costume-encouraged event.”
All of the drawings are available for viewing and silent bidding online at her 100 Drawings in 100 Days Facebook page:
