To the Artists, Musicians, Investors & Guests of Petit Montmartre 2, Merci Beaucoup!

Thank you to Israel and Harut, co-owners of Revo Cafe, who demonstrate a generosity towards the community equalled by their genius for the arts.
Acrylic Abstract worked on live by Angel Sawle, who cheerily incorporated the smear into the history of her piece. Someone literally stepped on it...spreading the colors along the sidewalk as he left!

Aux Amis, the Gypsy Jazz Trio, closes down PM 2 with a colorful backdrop painted earlier in the day by PM kiddos.

Alt-rock duo, Lost Anyway, performs a stripped-down set following the acoustic string group, Clover Quartet.

Community Painting nestled in the courtyard foliage with paint cups taped to the trunks.
When I found this painting of a woman sketched on a white canvas at a garage sale, I saw the potential, took it home, painted the background, and added the Event text...collaborating with an unaware local artist. This wonderful lady behind her wandered through the event off and on, smiling, and informing me about the names of local flowers.
The Amazing Mr. Ethan Gold!
Thank you water bottle tags to keep our musicians and artists hydrated in the heat. My little boy "helped" with these the night before by loading them into his little red wagon to push to the car.

The lovely, local Rewind Audio team who leant their PA system to Petit Montmartre musicians for the day as well as running home to bring little kid tables to the event!


The fantastic Megan Betley, a recent NJ transplant, out in LA following her music dream.

Making flowers out of colored coffee filters and pipe cleaners, are the sweet and talented kids of PM Artist, Clare Hebert!

Photographer, Laura Casner, selling gorgeous prints snapped during road trips and local explorations.

Art Critic & Appraiser (as well as Revo co-owner) making art history...

PM Acrylics Artist, Jackie Hile, brings some beautiful friends who beautify the courtyard for us in the crazy heat.

Caricature artist & illustrator, Jess Lane, sets up in the shade.  Jess also specializes in pet portraiture!

Soul Sista!

Stunning, unique animal icons by Clare Hebert. She learned this process of etching in wood and applying gold leaf from a monk who preserves the method's tradition.

Art, art, everywhere is art art.

Acoustic set by Brady Cocoran, who stayed so chill throughout the sound system drama! 

The insanely talented, Nina Storey, rocks it out.

Professional bluegrass string quartet, The Modal Tease, play completely unplugged, but only 75% shaded. Brilliant musicians!

And much much more........ Stay tuned for Petit Montmartre 3 on Sunday, September 22nd! Pre-register to CatMooreArt@Gmail.Com!
