EVENTS, EXHIBITIONS AND DISPLAYS

The ratistes of ScamperART love to show off their creations ! They have participated in several local events, during which they gladly allowed their human companions to display their paintings. Shown below are photos from various events that ScamperART was a part of, both to demonstrate the vibrant works from the ratiste art colony and to better educate the human population about our cousins in the rat-world.

 

We displayed our artwork for the very first time at the Northern California Rat Community Annual 2005 Holiday Rat Costume Potluck Party, in Menlo Park, CA on 30 October, 2005.
Two of our ratistes and their human assistant enjoyed the rattie costume contest !
It was standing room only during the artwork discussion, where the various techniques used by the ratistes were presented.

ScamperART was a participant at the Berryessa Art & Wine Festival, in San Jose, CA on 13 May, 2006. Our ratistes and their assistants had a small booth to ply their wares, and educate the general public about the creative abilities of our rattie-friends !

ScamperART was invited to appear on "The Painting Gourmet Show" ! It was taped on July 12, 2006 and included a demonstration of the ratistes at work. From left to right are: Amanda, Tom and Mary (associates of the ratistes), rat-expert Debbie Ducommun ("The Rat Lady"), and Darlene Carman, the charming host of "The Painting Gourmet Show". The ratistes featured on the program were Cleopatra, Jasmine Belle and Zorra Explora, who eagerly demonstrated their unique SCAMPER style !


While there was a good deal of preparation on the part of the human associates, the ratistes took it all in stride.

The ScamperART ratiste colony was the site for the 2006 Northern California Rat Community (NCRC) Annual Holiday Potluck Costume Party.
A gift exchange was part of the festivities.
The event was recorded to be part of a documentary, and several of the club members, and their rats, were interviewed.
Certainly one of the ratistes, Tasha, thoroughly enjoyed the special attention lavished on her !
