Melissa Helene, Wisconsin Scratchboard Artist, hosted a live virtual art show in July 2020 to showcase her scratchboard wildlife artwork. This video is a playback of the live stream.

Virtual Art Show

If you missed my first ever Virtual Art Show - LIVE on Facebook - here is a replay to see what they are all about!

Since it was my first time hosting a remote solo art festival, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it went very well!

I am planning to host more LIVE Virtual Art Shows - hopefully on Facebook and Instagram next time - in 2021.

It's not the same as seeing the detailed scratchboard work in person, but it's a good second option until art festivals can safely resume.

Comments and suggestions about how to do it better are all welcome!
