I posted earlier about entering in the Raleigh Street Painting Festival. The event was September 19-20. The Visual Art Exchange did a great job organizing and promoting the festival. They packed 400 artists onto a couple blocks of Martin Street in Downtown Raleigh next to Moore Square and City Market.
My sister and I signed up together to chalk a 4 x 4 foot square. We weren't sure when we signed up exactly what our design was going to be, but we knew it would be tedious, so we opted for the smallest size. My brother, Austin, and our friend, Nia (of Nia Capri Photography), chalked a beautiful 6 x 6 square.
Emily and I couldn't stay to see Austin and Nia's artwork or for the judging and awards that night (wedding photography for me and studying for her). But Jonathan and I stopped by on our way home Sunday afternoon after the Belk Bridal Show to check out all the finished work. It was great to see all the amazing, colorful designs, and super surprising and exciting to see that Em and I won Best in Show for Design. YEA! and yea for sponsors so we could actually win a prize. Thanks.
