Quick Draw for Kids

     I will be one of about 30 artists at a Quick Draw event on May 20 at the Bottling Company in Downtown Hattiesburg. As the flyer says, there will be food, music, fun, and art. I will be the only one using a sewing machine and thread for my "drawing/painting" supplies.
     The artists will get set up and ready to create. When the bell sounds, we will have one hour to complete our piece, then 15 minutes to frame or otherwise get it ready to sell. Attendees will enjoy the food and music as they walk around and watch the artists in this 100+ year old building that formerly housed the Coca Cola Bottling Company. It has been remodeled into a restaurant/music club with a large balcony overlooking the large lower floor. Pieces will be live auctioned to the highest bidder as a fund raiser for the South Mississippi Children's Center.
     There will be other artwork on display for sale, also. The event is co-sponsored by South Mississippi Art Association and Hattiesburgers in Paradise. Music by Lloyd "Hurricane" Munn and the Forecasters.
