Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!

Full of some highs and real painful lows, 2013 was challenging, but I made it! WKU Photojournalism student Shelley Owens shadowed me for the final few days before the holidays when I was really exhausted. Shelley Owens' image features my silhouette as I was preparing the gallery for a tour of A Journey Home.  A Journey Home is a photographic exhibition telling the story of Kentucky foster families and children looking for their forever home.  The exhibition was organized by SKyPAC, features almost 20 professional photographers in the region and is SKyPAC's first touring exhibition

Onward and upward in 2014!  Getting it started right, some of my paintings and the KayBob's mural will be featured in a film, I've been asked to design the stage for Bowling Green's first Idea Festival, and I'm looking into starting an artist retreat and residency space featuring multiple Tiny houses.

Making THINGS happen is my goal for 2014! All the best to everyone in the New Year!

Landfill Art Project

Landfillart is an international effort encompassing one-thousand-forty-one (1,041) artists to claim a piece of rusted metal garbage and create fine art.  Pictured above is Andee Rudloff's Near Nashville hubcap featuring Bowling Green, KY's Corvette logo on a cake highlighting Bowling Green as the home of Duncan Hines and Corvettes.

The 1,041 pieces of rusted metal are actually old automobile hub caps from the 1930’s through the 1970’s.  Each hub cap, after being cleaned and primed, is affectionately called a “metal canvas.”  Although most “metal canvases” have been transformed by the artist using oil or acrylic paint, some have been weaved on, glued or screwed or welded to, or made into fine sculpture.

Ken Marquis, founder shares...
I have found that the fine artists I have worked with on this project do not even flinch when looking at this white round disc of metal canvas.  And why should they.  Artists from the beginning of time have used cave walls (Lascaux, France and Altamira, Spain,) walls of pyramids (Egyptians,) animal skins (American Indians,) etc… as their canvas.  In addition, as a gallery owner for over thirty years, I maintain that artists, generally speaking, are more ecologically in touch and environmentally aware.  Perhaps that is the reason forty-one artists readily accepted the challenge and embraced the project.
The project is near completion. We are currently seeking the final group of artists. It has been evolving from a simple idea of taking forty-one old rusted hub caps and creating forty-one pieces of great art.  The second phase has already started with the acquisition of one thousand additional (1000) rusted hub caps which will be turned into cleaned and primed “metal canvases.  The project will continue with finding one thousand (1000) talented artists who believe in this project.
The third phase will involve publishing a book on the project showcasing all one thousand forty one (1,041) completed “metal canvases.”
An announcement will be made on Earth Day 2013 about the upcoming exhibitions and the final phase which will involve choosing 200 metal canvases that adequately represent the project and create a traveling show. The book and traveling show will portray the global art community's effort to positively impact the environment through re-purposing previous metal waste into great landfillart.

Peace Jam Mural

On Saturday, January 26, 2013, at the Curb Event Center - Belmont University - Nashville, Tn, I was asked to work with Peace Jam participants to create a mural.

The Peace Jam Mural, pictured, is 12ft by 24ft...all of the images were drawn by Peace Jam participants and given to Andee to include in one composition. Andee designed the mural on the large vinyl tarp.  The design is based on the participants drawings. The participants painted, after a short discussion about contrasting colors, and the mural was completed in about one hour.

Nobel Peace prize winner Shirin Ebadi even signed the mural!

I heard 2 young women in the closing discussion share, "I'm an artist!" Love it!

Stars Nashville will decide where it will be displayed.

A time lapse video of the mural will be posted soon.

Peace Jam:
