Prints are now available on my Etsy shop! I have prints available for a handful of paintings and drawings. More to come soon! I had great feedback and sales from the RAWartists event last Thursday. It was packed at Holocene, and I met a lot of wonderful new artists. The variety was a breath of fresh air, and it was so great to talk about art with fellow artists and art lovers.
The way RAWartists showcase works is that the artists are handpicked for this event. Ticket sales pretty much pay for the artists’ space at the venue, which keeps the costs as low as possible for the artist. The fact that the event is local definitely works to the advantage of the artist since it’s pretty easy to tell friends, family, and coworkers about the event and reach the ticket sales quota. It also sets the stage for more potential exposure in another city. Once the tickets are paid, the artist can go to one other RAWartist event in another city.
I am really thinking about going to New York, specifically Manhattan, for an event. It would be a great adventure and a wonderful opportunity to get my art out there.
Well, this summer will be a busy one for me! My husband and I recently bought a house and we will be moving in this week! This is incredibly exciting, and I cannot wait to set up my art room! I set up my art at a gallery which will show my paintings and leather jewelry beginning June 1st, and I have a showing at a salon in July. And who knows, maybe I’ll head to NYC by fall! I’m so thankful that my work schedule has allowed me to spend more time on my art and getting it out there.
