Calling all art lovers, feline fanatics and all those who just want to have some fun. BubbaPalooza is going to be an EVENT that you won't want to miss.
A Little Background:
Bubba is a17 pound orange and white feline, who is also the inspiration for this show. He is quickly becoming famous in the neighborhood. He greets visitors at the door, insists on a pat on the head or a cuddle and then he's off to do his own thing.
No stranger to the age of Social Media, Bubba even has his own Facebook page. "LIKE" him on Facebook to receive all the latest updates.
Last year Laura took a photo of Bubba, which began a year long exploration of artistic imagery ranging from the comical to the sublime. Inspired by that one photo of her cat muse she utilized a diversity of styles and mediums to create over 30 different portraits of the cherubic feline. Making up those 30 are 19 paintings, a movie, a sculpture, a mask, a box, a ready made, pencil drawings, ink drawings, a comic book (done with her cartoonist husband Gary Dumm), a few pieces of jewelry and a construction.
Laura Dumm (and Bubba) invite you to an art show "Happening": a one night event designed to celebrate everything that is "Bubba"!!
This show is an exuberant and colorful exploration of the artist's craft. Each style variation is evidence of the different challenges Laura met during the course of creating this show. "Ever since I was a young artist I was told to find a style and perfect it. I never understood that thinking," Laura says. "This past year has been so much fun painting how I felt at that particular moment, freely and deeply investigating my process of making art."
