Sunday's Guerilla Art Show on MashUp

The oil painting above is the work of Jay Bohannan. He's been painting scenes to do with the tobacco business for years. Jay will be among the adventurous artists participating in the Guerilla Art Show in Byrd Park behind the Carillon around the Ha’Penny stage on Sunday, Mar. 30., from 2 p.m until 5 p.m.

To see a video about this happening event click here to watch it on the MashUp page at (The art show stuff follows the bicycle event, which they cover first.)

If you are an artist or an art lover, the Guerilla Art Show -- free to one and all -- may be just what you're looking for in the way of how to spend a pretty spring afternoon. Here's why: Artists are going to schlep some of their work out to the park to show it, and to offer it for sale to whoever shows up to look at it.

For the artists to note -- no one will take a percentage of what is sold; there is no charge to participate. Display space will be first come, first serve … but share. Just bring your art and you're in the show.

For art lovers to note -- since you'll be buying the art directly from the artist, with no gallery commission added onto the price, there will be some good bargains to be had. Everybody wins.

Folks are also going to be picnicking at the tables in that same area. Some may be bringing musical instruments (no electricity), too. All are welcome to come to the park and have a good time. There’s also a fenced-in playground area for small children. So, bring your sense of humor, your coolers, and whatever else you think you ought to have with you to have fun.
