The Saatchi Gallery is a gallery for contemporary art. It was opened by Charles Saatchi in 1985 to show his collection to the public. When it first opened, it ran a series of exhibitions of many American artists, including Andy Warhol. The gallery has been a major influence on art in Britain since its opening. Many artists shown at the gallery are unknown to the general public, and showing at the gallery has provided a springboard to launch their careers.
The Saatchi Showdown is a great opportunity for artists to spotlight their works to a very wide audience. This week is the 9th round, and just for fun, I have entered my very first bead-painting, Flamingo Moon.
Flamingo Moon was published in the June 2005 issue of Bead & Button Magazine, and it is also one of the few pieces of beadwork that I have made available for sale. I will try to remember to enter the next 3 Showdowns, as well… Please stop by and vote for my piece HERE, and don’t forget to check out My Saatchi Gallery…
Now, I miss London and all of it’s fine art galleries. I love that city, and I think I shall return there again next year… 🙂
Also, please stop by my secret blog I started with a friend.
War of Words. Enjoy:)
