When Kristin Abraham and
Alfonso Llamas brought The Nomadic Project to Vermont, it was the city
of Woodstock that was chosen to participate. Vermont is the
thirty-eighth state to be connected through art, as Polonaise Gallery
displays a single painting from the Nomadic Series, until the end of December 2006.
Gallery owner, Wojtek Pilczynski, made the young artists feel at home, as he welcomed them to Woodstock. Polonaise Gallery
is an exciting display of traditional and contemporary art, and The
Nomadic Project is proud to exhibit in the elegant space. "All Grown Up
," is the piece that Abraham and Llamas placed in Vermont, but it was inspired by Abraham's home state of New York.
By the end of this year, all fifty states will be displaying a single
canvas. freshly painted by emerging artist, Kristin Abraham.
Thirty-eight states are currently participating, as they display a
piece that was inspired by a neighboring state. Abraham, and
musician, Alfonso Llamas, have been on the road for eleven months,
traveling from state to state, to illustrate their experiences through
art. This body of work, in
the making, will become part of a traveling exhibit
in November of 2007.
The Nomadic Project
created as a way to inspire
and educate individuals through art. With that said, the work touches
base with emotional, physical and historical elements that lie within
the land that we call America. In order to
realize this goal, the artist's, Abraham and Llamas, fit their lives
into a Honda Element and hit the road. When The Nomadic Exhibit begins
touring in 2007, it will be the first time that all fifty paintings are
displayed together, illustrating how the artist's style evolves through
outside influences. The work will be joined by music
, journal entries
, and video
Abraham and Llamas also encourage participation by individuals in every state, as they
finish their journey of the U.S. Each email that they receive
will become part of the final exhibit. Paintings can also be purchased by
contacting Abraham (firstname.lastname@example.org
or directly through
participating galleries. The project is entirely self-funded, so each
sale goes into making this concept a reality. The owner will receive an
nameplate to be displayed with their piece, as well as a signed print
to display as their painting tours the U.S.
