What is Kaleidoscopic Symphony (KS)?
Kaleidoscopic Symphony is the title of the next series I will be working on that will focus on YOU - because you are amazing!

YOU Can Be the Subject of a (KS) Painting
Sign up for free to allow me to use your likeness from one of your facebook photos as inspiration for one of my paintings in the KS series. Visit kaleidoscopicsymphony.com  to sign up and to find out more information on what I'm looking for.

Does it cost anything to be involved?

Really? It's Free?
Yes. It's free. I want to paint everyone. Seriously. 

What will the paintings look like?
I am keeping the details of this first showing of KS a surprise. Part of the fun will be discovering what images I used as reference from people's facebook accounts and what those reference images became. If you are not familiar with my work, you can view it at alexradin.com. Here is a sample of my figurative work from one of my latest series.

Oil on Birch Wood Panel
43 1/4" x 43 1/4"

When & Where Will the Kaleidoscopic Symphony Exhibit Take Place?
My hope is that the first exhibit of this series will take place in Charleston, SC sometime in 2016. This timeline can only be achieved if the project is funded.

What do you mean by first exhibit?
I have had such an incredible response so far from people all over the United States and the list of people and cities represented keeps growing. For this reason I am hoping to have the show travel and for new works to be added along the way as it visits different cities.

Why $65,000?
Here is what I hope to cover with the $65,000:

$2,600/month for 18 months ($47,000) - large climate controlled studio/storage space, housing & living expenses so that I can be fully dedicated to this project

$18,000 - exhibit space rental for one month, show promotion, art supplies & materials to create the paintings, show production (lighting, hanging materials, presentation, reception etc.) and gofundme fees.

What is "A Year of Pattern" Found in the Incentives?
"A Year of Pattern" is the 365 8" x 8" painting studies I am doing in preparation for Kaleidoscopic Symphony, and you can find out more about "A Year of Pattern" at 365dayspainting.com.

Thank You & Incentives
Thank you for supporting my work and this project. It means more to me than I can adequately express with words. As a small way to say thank you I have come up with some incentives. Please check them out, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me. Also be sure to check out kaleidoscopicsymphony.com  and sign up to possibly have ME paint YOU in one of my upcoming paintings.
