Harwood Art Center 12×12 fundraiser

I was honored to be invited for the third year to participate in the Harwood 12×12 art show fundraiser. Many local upcoming and established artists are invited to donate 12″x12″ artworks to be purchased at $144.00 each. At the art show, the artist’s names are not labeled on the artwork, so there is a nice surprise factor to the patrons. This year, the art show was virtual, due to the coronavirus. I saw that my piece was purchased already and I’m glad I was able to contribute and participate in supporting this wonderful local arts organization! There are still a few pieces available in the exhibition so go check it out!

Paint For Peace Mural

Several months ago, when there were protests going on due to the tragic, unnecessary and unfortunate death of George Floyd, many windows in downtown Albuquerque were boarded up. Somebody had the idea to invite artists to paint the boards. I was one of the artists to participate. Here is the mural I painted. I called it “Peace Garden”.

Albuquerque Artists Trading Card Exchange

A few months ago, I participated in a local ATC exchange with other Albuquerque artists. It was a fabulous experience! The cards I created were mermaid and under the sea themed. Every artist created cards and we all sent them in the mail, so now every artist has a collection of a variety of different cards with original art by other ABQ artists. It was a very fun project.

Mural contest

The past month I’ve been participating in a mural contest at the Albuquerque American Home Furniture store. Several local artists painted murals on large boards and they are in display at the store right now. There is also a contest. Anyone can vote in the store or online for their favorite mural. The winner will receive a cash prize! ( the voting was supposed to end in December 1, but now it’s been extended to Dec. 15).
Also- the paintings are for sale and 40% of the sale proceeds will go to a local ALS charity.

Please vote for my painting, if you like it!!!💕

Abq spooky art hunt!

Tomorrow I will be hiding these tiny felt badges as part of #abqspookyarthunt2020 , an Albuquerque-Halloween – themed art scavenger hunt! Local artist, Alexandrea Gowan organized the event. Lots of local artists have made halloween inspired art and will be hiding their pieces around the city for Burqueños to find! Follow on social media ( my Instagram is @lindsaybrenner) to get clues on where each artist hides their creations!

RBG -she used her life to leave us a gift- a legacy

RBG has been a hero and role model for me for a long time. She made a difference in our world and used her energy to improve the lives of many- contributing much to the women’s rights movement. I was saddened when I heard of her passing last week. I hope we can all continue her legacy.

I painted a portrait of her earlier this year as a tribute.

you can buy a print of the painting on my society6 site.
