Artists Enclave of Denton County (AEDC) has been a resource for the creative community in Denton County for five years now. They have hosted about 50 events since the organization first formed in 2015 – workshops, art exhibitions, theatrical presentations, dance performances, etc. But with COVID still hanging around some of their go-to venues remain closed.
Ta-Da! Enter into Artists Enclave’s first virtual art show – “Electric Eclectic”.
Susan Carol Davis is AEDC president. She took her idea about a virtual art exhibition to Enclave member Sam Troutte of Troutte Marketing Company. Troutte came up with the design and created a sleek seaside “museum” along with a walk through a room-to-room maze to showcase AEDC members’ work.
AEDC members are a diverse group of visual and performing artists, both amateur and professional, working in a variety of mediums. The show features works in watercolor, charcoal, photography, stained glass, jewelry, and more.
AEDC is not charging artists any of their normal fees for participating in a show like “Electric Eclectic.” All sales of work go directly to the artists.
When AEDC put out the call for artwork one art teacher jumped on it. Several of his students from Harpool Middle School in Lantana submitted works with a Halloween theme.
In addition to the great visual artwork, what makes “Electric Eclectic” different from other virtual art exhibitions are the interactive components throughout the site said, Davis.
“‘Electric Eclectic’ brings you directly into the gallery. In our Denton Select Corner, viewers can see music videos, art demonstrations, hear interviews and storytellers, and even hear a poet read from her works.”
