As many of you know, I still hold a full time job with a local rescue mission in addition to my slowly growing job of painter. The Piedmont Rescue Mission held a craft and vendor fair this past weekend that I took part in. Since there were also yard sale items and food for sale, most craft or art items had slow sales. But having these vendors and taking part helped the rescue mission raise some much needed cash.
There is a quick pic at the bottom of this post of my setup. I just brought a simple display for originals and some bins with matted prints as well. I also met and networked with some other artists and might be taking part in a street festival thay told me about later in June.
Some upcoming events:
Saturday, June 4th - Stokes County Arts Council Wine, Bid, and Boogie festival and art auction. I will be painting on location behind Germanton Gallery in King, NC and paintings will be auctioned off later in the day. This is a great chance for me to see work at the gallery there by nationally known artists and I can't wait!
Double Exposure Exhibit - I will be taking part in this exhibit at the Chatham Camera Club Gallery later in the year. It is near the large Arts Incubator Gallery in Siler City. The photographers post photos and the artists have to choose a photo and create their interpretation of it. The art and the photographer's photo are then exhibited side by side. I will post dates when I have them.
