Gidding will also paint an original work of art during the first day (before and between presentations) which will be raffled off to an audience member at his final presentation.

“I enjoy painting ad hoc and I think it’ll be a great way of getting people to think about where they’d put a contemporary piece in their home, as they’ll potentially win the piece that’s right there,” comments Gidding.

Gidding will share some takeaways for how to feel about your own “art collection”; identify ways of making walls have a purpose in each room; introduce different usages of art in interiors through furniture, installations, paintings, graffiti, etc.; and discuss the role of art in Trading Spaces and why it’s always put off as “homework.”
