Art Show Update – Building Perspective
For this art show, I decided to take the opportunity to make all new paintings and create my first series. I was afraid that I wouldn’t have enough work to show but when it came time to load the paintings for delivery, it became apparent that I had more than enough to try to fit them all in the truck.
On the night of the reception, I was ecstatic to see a steady stream of visitors come by on such a cool, drizzly evening. I couldn’t have been happier to see so many people including fellow artists, work colleagues, friends and family come and support me.
Although the venue is a not a traditional gallery space, the high ceilings and abundance of natural light showcases art really well. It was also a very cozy space to chat and view the art as we lingered past the end of the reception time.
I was not only excited to sell four paintings but that artists Arnt and Valerie Arntzen also attended my reception! Most of the photos that I used in this series were taken at Arnt’s studio and were the key inspiration for this series. I was so honored that they took the time to come. They purchased the painting “Deliberation”, which is pictured above, as a gift to themselves for their 35th anniversary. I always like telling that story!
With each show I have, I never tire of connecting with everyone and hearing direct feedback about my work. I have to thank Angie Heintz, the gallery curator, who was amazing in coordinating the reception and the show. This has been a fantastic experience in holding my first solo show.
