Dallas, TX (PressExposure) August 10, 2013 -- Thursday, Sept. 12 the Vinyl Thoughts Nation presents their fourth edition Vinyl Thoughts Art Show group exhibition. An audience of more than 500 art lovers is expected to attend with live music and refreshments available. Selected custom works by local artist Tanya Davis will be on display and for sale one night only from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. at The Quixotic World in Deep Ellum, Dallas. Free Admission.
The show will have periodic breaks to auction off pieces donated to Creatures for Kids, a non-profit organization which connects local artists to children's charities through unique, exciting art auctions. Davis has donated a copper-colored steampunk style Google Android vinyl figurine which will be auctioned to help raise needed funds and awareness for the great work of Children at Risk, a Texas-based non-profit that focuses on using the tools of advocacy, collaboration, awareness, and research to provide a better future for kids.
Davis is a multi-medium visual artist based in Austin, Texas specializing in figurines. Her debut on the custom vinyl platform is marked by a figurine displayed at the Guzu Gallery earlier this year and participation in the first ever Jerry's Artarama Munny Show in Austin. Always exploring new designer toy and figurine ideas Davis has customized vinyl forms made by Munnyworld, LittleHouseDesigns and Google's Android with her signature style. Most of her pieces are in the Steampunk style.
Each figurine by Tanya Davis is shaped and detailed by hand. She uses acrylic paints and mica powder pigments to add color to her work. The pieces are finished with glaze that protects and enhances the figurine's detail. People often request paintings or high-quality marker drawings of the figurines she has created. Davis welcomes commission work.
The "Premiere Custom Vinyl Toy Show in the South" is how Vinyl Thoughts bills this event which showcases artist-designed vinyl toys.
