Lucky Wheels X Wild Dogs Art Show

Barely a couple months ago, we approached Lucky Wheels Garage with the idea to do an art show there. They had never done one and thought it was a great idea - and we wanted to do something to celebrate local artists in our community.

 So, we wrangled about 30 artists to make work for our show, with like a month of notice. The theme was ADVENTURE! I told artists that they could involve motorcycles or not - their choice. Just adventure. Everyone cranked their work out, and we got some seriously amazing pieces. Some even flew in from other states, we were so impressed by the work that we received.

The day of the show, we had a LOT of help setting things up. Not only Ty and Jackson from Lucky Wheels - but friends who didn't get a cent for helping us. From lighting to hanging art, to moving around motorcycles - they had our backs. My BFF Pat even surprised me by showing up AT the show from Washington. Thank you all who went out of your way for us.

The event itself was probably the most fun that I, personally, have had at one of our events (this only being our third). I don't know if it was just the fact that I had so much help for this one - or that I'm just starting to finally relax a little . . . but I found myself actually getting to talk to people and enjoy the night.

I think that the highlight for me was the response from the artists. Some of them are old veterans in the art world - some are up & coming artists and this was their first time showing art! I know how rough the art world can be, so my heart exploded being able to help, even a little bit, propel these artists forward.
