On the heels of the annual Wickford Art Festival, their first Celebrity Art Show & Auction features original artwork auctioned off by many personalities from local media, influencers and beyond, including our own co-host, Brendan Kirby!
The exhibition itself will run from July 16 to August 1 with auctions for the auction starting July 23. It will also feature work by WPRI’s Shannon Hegy, Danielle North and Kim Kalunian, with proceeds going to the Wickford Art Association and a charity of each artist’s choice; Brendan selected Metallica’s Everything in my hands Foundation which was formed in 2017.
Having seen the band in concert 47 times, his passion for them is strong and his design is inspired by the guitars of James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica as well as the Foundation title and the band’s song of the same name. Entitled “AMPLIFYING THE GOODNESS: IT’S IN YOUR HANDS,” Brendan unveiled the near-completed sketch on The Rhode Show today after taking a look at some of his previous designs! Find out in the video above.
