Star sang both acoustic covers of current pop favorites from Lady Gaga to Beyonce and some original tunes. Her voice drew people in and transported them to another time and place. It was almost as if she cast a spell amongst the audience. She is simple mesmerizing.
In addition to being a visual artist, Phil is also a musician. He performed five of his original songs on guitar. His ability to weave humorous musical tales reflected the playfulness in his visual art.
I performed my original and award-winning fable, "The Peach Thief". It is a part of my Ex Libris De Corpus project where I am transforming myself into a modern day Illustrated Man, where each tattoo tells a tale.
We also hosted Artshop, an artist lecture and workshop series curated by Tanya Gayer, with current exhibiting artist Phil McGaughy in conversation with gallerist Marialidia Marcotulli of Space 868 in Bolinas.
