Chairs of Bisbee

I saw the announcement downtown: ATTENTION ARTISTS / BISBEE WOMAN'S CLUB PRESENTS / CHAIRS OF BISBEE

hmmmm...

We are looking for artists to decorate a chair in any medium.

oh my...interesting

Quick check of the dates...November 5, 2006...Opening reception / November 25 & 26 ... Final Bidding...

okay...I'm IN...Where do I sign up???

Well it actually was not the first time I had heard of CHAIRS OF BISBEE but it was the first time I had heard of CHAIRS OF BISBEE since I considered myself an ARTIST...

sooooo....I will be updating regularly about my CHAIRS OF BISBEE entries...progress, frustrations, excitements...and of course the FINAL RESULTS!!!

Finding My First Chair


I stopped at the thrift shop over in Warren (one of the parts of Bisbee). They had one wooden chair in stock. (I had already decided on wooden chairs.) So I bought it. The price was right ($3.00) and the only thing I could see wrong with it was a missing spindle in the back. (Hey that is just a challenge...and opportunity...not a problem!)


So here is my chair...


I know I want to do at least two chairs...
I have ideas for two chairs...



The hope is that I will find at least one chair that is an inspiration to me for a third or fourth or fifth chair...

Yes, I decided on wooden chairs. But now I have decided that metal chairs would be fine. Would be excellent, in fact. So now the only rules are: No PLASTIC or UPHOLSTERED chairs.

I haven't found any more chairs yet, but I truth be told, I will probably actually have to leave my house to find more chairs. Very few people actually drop chairs off at my house...but hey...if you have a great chair that you are getting rid of...and are going to be in the Bisbee area in the next month or so....
