In the Art Bar - Bill Ball

The Lincoln Theatre Gallery Art Bar will feature a selection of Bill Ball Fireball’s contemporary art.  Bill will be painting live during his artist opening and the Mount Vernon Art Walk on June 2, 2016, 5pm to 8pm. The show features selected contemporary works created since he completed his first painting at Burning Man in 2013.  Bill Ball Fireball’s work will be displayed at the Lincoln Theatre Art Bar through June 30, 2016.
  
Bill Ball Fireball’s Artist Statement:  It all started in 2013. With no formal training in art, I only discovered that I was an artist when I found myself at Burning Man, a week long art and music event in the Nevada desert. Artists were constructing and painting walls and sharing spaces. I was given a wall. I was tentative at first but threw myself into painting. "Psychedelic Cross" was the result, a large, vibrant, multicolored work... but a temporary one. I slept for a few hours and awoke to find it had been painted over.
