DryerART- artwork where the “canvas” is a blow dryer. Check out some more of the creative works! This event is a new industry effort to raise funds for Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund®, a partnership of NCA, Clairol Professional and Southern Living at HOME. Original works of DryerART were exhibited and auctioned to the highest bidders at the gala event.
Some of the other salon celebrity artists who contributed their talent included Luis Alvarez, Martin Parsons, Christopher Dove, Robert Cromeans, Michael O’Rourke, Marcy Cona, and many more. Almost $12,000 was raised by auctioning 35 of the DryerART pieces. Some DryerART works were for exhibit only at FirstLOOK and will soon be available through an online auction to all interested bidders including Floyd Kenyata’s work adorned with a diamond! Details will be posted on www.ncacares.org.
