Buy a “piece” of the art and become part of the art! Artist Nick Cashmere lets you not only own a “share” of his work “Fugitive,” but you also become a participant in the creative process. When you purchase a numbered shard from the smashed up clown figurine featured in the piece, you earn a chance to win the entire work of art! Even if you don’t win the drawing at the end of June, you are forever artistically connected to the other “share” owners! Buy you shard today in the Kortman Gallery! Hear Nick tell about this intriguing art participation concept/contest:
Make Father's Day especially memorable when you give a gift of fine art...present Dad with an extraordinary work of art by Beloit artist Nick Cashmere. Nick creates beautiful works in wood with 3-dimensional applications, and intricate imagery drawn with a wood-burning stylus. Nick's work can be seen Tuesday thru Friday, 11a-6p, and Saturday, 11a-5p upstairs in the Kortman Gallery.
