Rush Beam, a Davidson, NC native, is hosting his first big city art show in San Francisco, CA this Friday, May 7th. Called Landscaped: Reflection, his collection of drawings and paintings highlights his interest in the interior life and how it expresses itself in the world. As part of his commitment to encouraging that expression in young artists, Rush is donating the proceeds of one of his drawings, up for silent auction at the show, to Circle de Luz. Married to Erin Lane Beam, one of the founders of Circle de Luz, Rush wanted to recognize and affirm the work being done by CDL to offer young girls a place where their creativity flourishes; most recently in a painting class taught by a Colombian artist. He hopes the proceeds will continue to make art education a vital part of the program to radically empowers young Latinas.
See above for the piece, Somber Rhythm, being auctioned on CDL’s behalf. To place an absentee bid on the piece or see more from the artist, visit www.rushbeam.com.
