Spruce Hosts Austin’s 12 x 12 Project

On December 12th (12-12), Spruce will be hosting an opening reception featuring artwork of the 12 x 12 Project. From 2-5 pm, exhibiting artists will be available to discuss their pieces over wine and light snacks. Here is more information about the show from the 12 x 12 founder, Mary Gatling.

“The 12 x 12 Project began with the concept of having a few experienced artists teaching and helping new aspiring artists.
‘When You Teach, You Learn’.
We started with the idea of painting all pieces on 12″ x 12″ canvases for the purpose of having a uniform size, small enough to complete in a short period of time.
In time, we all realized we wanted to paint on larger canvases.
We enjoy connecting with friends through art and this project has been about friendships as much as it has been about art.
We develop our skills, encourage, and inspire each other through this project which consists of a very diverse group of artists. ”
