Fun Weekend Ahead! 2 Events- One Weekend!

Fun Weekend Ahead! 
2 Events- One Weekend!

This will start to happen a lot now. The more shows I sign up for, the more they began to overlap! This is the nature of the business they say. Many artists who have much more experience than I do also express to me how all of the Galleries, Shops, Art Fairs and Festivals all are trying to position themselves on the best weekends and they are definitely overlapping. Summer shows, Fall shows and the Holidays events are when it happens the most! Well the time has begin. Hopefully I will choose the right shows and events to have a successful summer and fall season. Wish me luck. That's all for now. 
Take Care and Stay Creative!

The Season of Art Shows Begins!!!

Well The Season has Begun!

     The life of an artist is always busy and that's a good thing. There are so many things to do when you run your own art business. You have to work on your printed materials for shows, work on your Social media posts, take photos of your work, apply to shows, work on "the books", buy supplies, set up displays at galleries and shops that show your work, meet with customers and go to meetings for art organizations and groups, and also Create! It can get a Little Crazy but we Love It for we love Creating and sharing our Craft. I feel blessed to be able to make people happy with the things I create. Thant what make this career Awesome

I participated in my first show in April and it was great. What a wonderful way to start out the year. May holds a lot of events as well. Working on new designs is always a must. I want to introduce a New line each show. I hope I will be able to do this. I working towards that gold. This week I getting ready for my first Guest Artist Session and my first outside show for the year. Here is some of the pics from setting up at Green Door Art Gallery in Webster Groves, MO. I love this Gallery. I will be bringing a couple of other Items to add in before the opening reception this Friday! This weekend on Saturday and Sunday Washington, MO will be the place to be. I will be in the 34th Washington Art Fair and Winefest. This is always a wonderful show to meet new people, see old friends and sample wonderful wines from across our region. Oh, and Buy some Great Art!!! Washington, MO is such a sweet little town and I enjoy the charm of this city. We are usually set up right on the main street with all great shops surrounding us. Cool Show!

The last event is Going to be a Clayton Fine Art Gallery in Clayton MO. I will be showing an one of a kind wearable art  design that was inspired my a wonderful young artist in the 8th grade. This exhibition is part of the "Blooming Art Project". I will share more about this great event closer to the reception which is May 29th.
