Freaks and Geeks at the July Oddball Art Hall

In the northeast coast Megalopolis, Wilmington is barely noticeable. Sandwiched between Boston, New York, Philly, and Baltimore, it's hardly a blip on the major city radar. There are still people who only know Delaware for it's head banger reputation garnered from Wayne's World. While we can all agree that Wayne's World is amazing, Wayne and Garth's home state is seldom thought of as a burgeoning arts and culture hub. There is a monthly art event that works to change that. Oddball Art Hall, which takes place at Wilmington's Oddity Bar, is a monthly art event that features live drawing, live music, and artists  ranging from painters to photographers to jewelry makers to ceramic artists.
I have vended a few times since it's inception. It's always a fun "art party" vibe. The July show was no different. I showed some work, met a few artist internet friends in person for the first time, listened to the DJ spinning records, and painted a lovely model dressed as Princess Leia- replete with light saber in tow of course.
My table at Oddball featuring art jewelry, cameo headpieces, prints, and notecards.
