Bumber-by-Number art exhibit shows altered “Paint-by-Numbers” at Bumbershoot

“Bumber By Number” is an interactive and fully immersive Paint-by-Number art exhibit curated by Marlow Harris and JoDavid for the 2011 Bumbershoot Arts Festival.

The show features an interactive audience participatory paint-by-number homage to Edouard Manet’s “The Picnic” (“Le Dejeuner sur L’Herbe”) by artist Ryan Feddersen. In addition, bask in the glory of Victoria BC artist Bill Blair’s amazing life-size paint-by-number banners and guitars, and local Seattle artists create incredible canvases of altered vintage Paint-by-Numbers.

There is a special Bumbershoot Arts preview on Thursday, September 1st, 3pm to 9pm and you can see all the art shows at that time.

You can also view the show at Bumbershoot that takes place over Labor Day weekend, Sept. 3-5

Seattle artist and photographer Jennifer Zwick took not one but two different Paint-by-Number paintings and rose to the challenge of transforming both into dynamic works of art.

Here are her finished pieces with her darling son, Owen, ready to assist.

Joey Veltkamp chose a lovely religious theme, which he transformed into his own personal LGBT Rainbow Jesus.

The Stranger’s art director, Aaron Huffman was up to the task, bringing new light to this tired old horse painting.

Seattle artist David Kane transformed this mundane landscape into a science fiction fantasy painting:

Elizabeth Jameson completely transformed a landscape into a disco glow-in-the-dark scene of delight:

Sean Hurley had some fun with a still life that he altered into his own signature style:

    Can’t say enough good things about this show, this was worth the Bumbershoot ticket price alone. They don’t show bill Blair’s illuminated guitars on here, which are genius, even the tent panels are spectacular. “Shoot” on over there, through end of day today, Labour Day.
