Warmer weather and sunny days are upon us and I’m getting excited for participating in more craft fairs and events as the weeks roll on. I was reading Etsy for some inspiration this morning and thought it would be fun to answer some questions that were featured when they were portraying one of their artists. So here is a little self-portrait exercise that I decided to put together on life in and out of the studio. Enjoy!
After a week of not sleeping in preparation for my back to back shows Friday & Saturday, I can officially say that the weekend was a success and I had a wonderful time with everyone.
If you missed our performance of the Moon at Goodbye Blue Monday we have a video to share with you of our last song, and only duet, True Love Will Find You in the End. Thanks so much to Hoi Chen for coming out & filming the entire show for us. More videos to come.
A few hours of sleep later after the show, Jeff’s alarm went off at 7:30am. Still a little hazy from a few too many Ommegangs, I realized it was time to head to the studio, unpack my video equipment from the night before and load in all my art, jewelry, dress form, 6ft table & table cloth banner, 2 chairs, speaker, mini dvd player, tshirt supply, print rack & prints, and all the display items into my little car. (Tetris skills came in very handy here!) This was only the second time I had ever exhibited my work outside of studio walls and let me tell you – it is a LOT of work setting up your own booth and relocating it out of the studio! Having accumulated this much stuff makes me want to fulfill my dream even more, of having my very own Danger van one day! I’ve always wanted one for housing all my equipment & artwork, taking long road trips, camping and doing drive by projections! Maybe this year I can make this happen..
Thanks to everyone who made it to both Brooklyn & Bridgeport this weekend. It turned into such a super awesome weekend reunion of friends, and it meant a lot to me to reconnect with everybody, as well as meet new folks in the area.
Gallery 305K plans to host these art markets once a month in their space, so you can expect to see me there again for the next one April 14th. For those of you who couldn’t make it to Bridgeport, here are a couple snapshots from the event. Enjoy!
