This Spring local artist Tammy Cunningham decided to participate in the 2017 Wildflower! Art Guitar Program & Auction, sponsored by Ebby Halliday Realtors. The pink guitar Tammy is donating to the auction is titled “Bohemian Gypsy Garden,” and believe it or not she only used markers to create the intricate designs.
A couple of times a week Tammy selected a fine point or ultra-fine point black Sharpie and as she describes, “used the marker to draw freehand what I envision as a peek into a free-spirited gypsy garden.” Look closely and you’ll notice flowers, curled ribbons, and a dragonfly resting in a peaceful place.
The custom guitar will be on display for the public May 19-21, 2017 at the 25th Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival inside the Eisemann Center. Read More

“Bass to the Bone” was unclaimed by the winning bidder and is now once again available to the public for a starting bid of $1,000 or the best offer received before 5:00 p.m. on July 3, 2015. Due to the size of the item, it must be picked up in person and will not be shipped or delivered.
Hundreds of hours have been donated by local artists and organizations in an effort to create a unique piece of art to be auctioned in the 2015 Wildflower! Art Guitar Program & Auction. Electric and acoustic guitars are painted, chopped, molded, airbrushed, layered, built, and completely redesigned at the sole discretion of the artist. The collection annually displays new themes, rocking embellishments, and impressive conversions of the traditional instrument.
This year the donated guitars reflect an extraordinary group of artists and their individual vision of wild, musical masterpieces. See the pictures in the Wildflower! Art Guitar Program & Auction album.
