Together with The Gallery of Art and Collectibles, also known as “The Disney Gallery,” will host a very special live painting performance featuring the talents of fine artist Trevor Carlton. Refining his talent by painting vintage Americana on reclaimed lumber, Carlton perfected his signature distressed style by painting a raw canvas to give it the appearance of wood, then using solvents and sandpaper to give it a distressed look. Over a decade ago, Carlton added an “American Vintage” collection that features hand-crafted works that fuse hand-distressed canvas appliqués on hand-painted original backgrounds, creating one of the most exciting additions to his portfolio to date. After numerous private commissions and Los Angeles gallery shows, Carlton also uses his style and talent to create unique symbols of American culture, including a Mickey Mouse-themed performance piece that showcases his talents as equal parts rock star and painter, a show that he has performed throughout the United States, Japan and the United Kingdom. This holiday season, on Saturday, December 18th, from 2:30-4 p.m., The Disney Gallery and Carlton will bring this amazing live performance to Hawthorn Mall. After the performance, Carlton will be in The Gallery of Art and Collectibles (The Disney Gallery) doing more live painting as well as signing, dedicating and embellishing all art purchased during the event. This event is free and open to the public; no pre-registration is required. Guests are asked to observe all state and local health regulations; masks are strongly encouraged.
