The Canvas 5 art show took place October 16, 2009 and boasted over 30 exhibiting artists (including Cameraluv), great live music and killer coffee. According to the organizers, just under 1,000 people visited their warehouse space throughout the course of the four-hour event. We met some great new friends from St. Pete, Tampa and Orlando.

For the love of the camera

Canvas exists to simply promote a community of inspiration. “Our idea, our dream, was born to provide a spring board for local up and coming artists, in such a way that would benefit both their craft and their career. The desire was to hold an event that could reach out to the art community of Tampa Bay. An event that could foster both excellence and creativity and could impact a city through the expressions of inspiration.” —Bobby Triplett, Canvas Organizer

Cameraluv Shows at Ritz Ybor

Cameraluv Shows at Ritz Ybor

The Virgin 2.o – Square One Creative Event at the Ritz Ybor in Tampa, Florida featured live classical and jazz music, 3 fashion shows and over 80 exhibiting artists including Cameraluv. Over 2,000 people came through the free event over the course of the Five-hour opening. 

We debuted two new paintings, Starmite on Red, 16″x16″ and Hawkeye On Yellow, 12″x12″ at the event. They are now available in the canvas art section. We were hoping to bring the wall installation we debuted at Canvas 4, but the Rivoli room at the Ritz wouldn’t allow any nails or holes into their newly remodeled room. Our compromise ended up being a wire hanging system provided by the venue. After several hours of setup and adjustment the wall was ready. 

It’s always fun to hear the feedback from other artists as well as show attendees. Sometimes they don’t know i’m standing nearby. I overheard a “that’s hot” and “Cameraluv … that’s nice”. A few of the artists commented that they enjoyed my work the best and thought I had  a great style and colors which were nice compliments. 

There was a wide range of art styles represented from acrylic and oil paintings, to skateboard art, stuffed toys and scratchboards as well as photography I enjoyed from Ryan PradoA.L. Canterbury. Rolando Corsa and Ashley Bates. I also had a chance to meet tattoo artist Jason Avery and ArtPool Maven and photographer Marina Williams.

Canvas 3 – Tampa, FL – January 18th, 2008

Canvas 3 served as Cameraluv’s original art premiere. We showed off our skills on custom-painted Van’s shoes, a hand-painted skateboard, various canvases and promo buttons.

Jeremy was one of 27 artists who were invited to show work in Canvas’ converted warehouse. Over the course of the opening night over 900 people came through to enjoy the art, live music and tasty treats courtesy of the good people of DaSilva’s Coffee. Check out the Canvas’ website at Canvas813.com.

Canvas 4 – Tampa, FL – September 26, 2008

Canvas 4 – Tampa, FL – September 26, 2008

The Canvas 4 art show, September 26, 2008, boasted over 30 exhibiting artists, great live music and killer coffee. According to the organizers, just under 1,000 people visited their new warehouse space throughout the course of the four-hour event.

All the hard work we put into the installation seemed to pay off with a great response to the wall. We put a lot of time into creating the backdrop with vintage posters and ads with cameras from the 20s to the 60s. Displayed on top of the collaged wall we added painted/embroidered tote bags and framed prints and canvases.

It was fun to hear the comments from the attendees that our installation was their favorite. I overheard one girl comment how perfect the Fran’s Thirty Five painting would go in her room. A high school student commented that “we were like a young Andy Warhol.” (What a compliment! Hopefully we’ll live up to it one day.) While browsing the show for ourselves, one artist’s work stuck out as our favorite. Mike D (Canvas), gracefully introduced us to fine artist Michelle Sawyer. After talking for about a minute of introduction, we realized that we were her favorite artist in the show also. We got a laugh out of it and by night’s end we traded paintings. Michelle picked our Revere in Yellow 12″x12″ canvas and Jeremy picked her Octopus/Spark plug piece that was painted on a wood box.

Over all Canvas 4 was a great time, we met some new friends in the art community, hung out with some old ones, sold some art/bags and got to get the Cameraluv name and work out there. The show also catalyzed into another art exhibition invite at the Ritz in Ybor City, December 2008.

Several of the framed prints, bags and canvases originally premiered at the Canvas show are now available for purchase in the Cameraluv Art section. Prices for prints start as low as $15. Bags as low as $25. Canvases as low as $150. Get your own piece of Cameraluv today.
