As I become a seasoned regular at the RAW Artists Phoenix Showcases, I’ve seen a lot of different artists come and present their work. Some are showing for their first time and others are just showing off a new collection, but one thing is always certain, you’ll definitely see something worth stepping over and checking out. With clearly a bigger lineup of artists were displaying their artwork and a brand new #RAWface promotion campaign in the works, Mosiac was an obvious example that these shows are really starting to make their way into the community and drawing some attention.
Setting things up a bit differently this time, each artist had their own designated space to display within and it really worked out well. Not only could you go around and check out everything easily, it was cool to have the artists right there to talk about their stuff. I got the chance to chat with Amanda Phipps about some of her abstract work and Travis Myers who’s hand drawn illustrations absolutely blew me away as soon as I stopped and looked. Done with felt pen, Myers is definitely a growing master of his craft.
It’s always a pleasure to experience the RAW Artists atmosphere and this time was no different. Check out the pictures and enjoy my perspective on the nights events.
