The CannabisArtGuild.Org’s inaugural Virtual Haunted Art Exhibit is an online gallery. Not only does it feature a curation of hauntingly beautiful paintings and sculptures, but it is created by emerging and established cannabis-inspired artists.
What is the CannabisArtGuild.Org?
The CannabisArtGuild.Org is a full-throttle organization that believes in the versatility of cannabis. By the same, they showcase this by exposing works of art to normalize the plant worldwide.
Equally, The Guild’s artistic endeavors have always been forward-thinking, and this is evident in their inaugural Virtual Haunted Art Exhibit. Open to the public on October 30th, this tailor-made spectacle has artists from all over the map working together for a collective vision of creativity.
So get excited! The haunting starts later this month, stays through November, and will take place throughout Halloween.
What is a Virtual Haunted Art Exhibit?
The Virtual Haunted Art Exhibit is an experience you won’t find anywhere else. Art is an acquired taste. Undoubtedly, there are shadowy pieces. Others are spell-binding; some might even be creepy.
Moreover, this is a fright night cerebral rush– without leaving the comfort of your caramel corn.
Further, it is strictly a grassroots initiative. Proceeds from the exhibition directly empower small cannabis farms in the Emerald Triangle following the California Wild Fires.
Similarly, the Guild focuses on freeing cannabis prisoners.

Howling Non-fungible Tokens (NFT) Auction
In the past, Halloween was a day meant for children. However, as time has changed, so has the celebration of Halloween. This exhibit could be the first-ever cannabis community NFT (Non-Fungible Token) Auction. Spooky right!
Cannabisartguild.org teamed up with Street Artist RonX111 and world-class animator Destrola. As a result, they will auction off a special Non-Fungible Token that will benefit Humboldt Grace’s Fire Recovery Project.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
The team of RonX111 with the actual originals, and then Destrola, who is the animation artist, are taking the cannabis community to a whole new level.
Australian Street Artist RonX111
RonX111 is an activist artist born in Australia, focusing on bringing balance and preserving the things he loves, from family to nature. In addition, one of his many talents is channeling his emotions and sharing them with the world through his art.
World-Class Animator Destrola
Destrola’s evolution to reinvent himself led him to realize he had a knack for understanding expression. Afterward, he used his skills to influence perceptions.
What are NFTs, and Why Should They Matter to Art?
Non-fungible tokens are a new digital asset. They are distinct because each token is unique and provides its individualized attributes. NFTs allow for the trading and selling products that cannot be replicated, like art or collectibles.
The idea behind these tokens is that NFTs can trade like stocks, but they also provide the same kind of transparency you would expect from physical objects.
The technology could benefit both artists and investors in the art market by creating more transparency in pricing, ownership, condition, provenance, and authenticity.

How Artists can Sell Art Online with Blockchain
With the use of blockchain, artists can issue digital art and sell it online.
Blockchain uses cryptography to store and transfer data while making sure that the owner is the rightful owner. Rather, artists can safely sell their artwork without worrying about someone stealing it or copying it.
Blockchain also ensures transparency for both the artist and buyer. Hence, buyers can be sure that they are getting what they paid for – a genuine piece of artwork from an established artist with a verified identity.
