I have accepted an invitation to the Wells Street Art Festival 2009 in Chicago! :0
This is one of the largest & most prestigious art festivals in the nation with expected attendance of 70,000.
Wells Street Art Festival
Chicago, IL June 13 & 14
Great to setup at the Palmer events Center for the 2009 Plutopia SXSW party where I enjoyed chatting with people about my artwork and reconnecting with creative types I haven’t seen in awhile: Parker, Lanel, Chad, Albert, Sara & more – really great seeing you!
Shame more people didn’t get to participate & enjoy – oh well 🙂
Very pleased to wake up Saturday and see an email they were putting the artists in a large tent instead of us all setting up our tents in thirty mile per hour winds. Actually the winds weren’t quite as bad as I expected but always nice to be under one roof with everyone. One drawback was the tent had red & white stripes, so half my display was red-shifted. Short day – did a small setup, sold some canvases and was home in Austin just after dark 🙂 Organizers were great and saw some artists from the Buda & Salado shows.
A few days ago, I started to apply for out of state shows and I am very excited to be accepted to the Montauk Fine Arts Festival May 23-25. So far, this is my out of state show. Montauk, New York is just a little further out the peninsula from the Hamptons about 50 miles from New York City. I haven’t been to NYC since right before 911 and looking forward to the trip. Will try to take the scenic route there and back to visit some neat places and photograph.
Drove in from a visit with my parents and private showing in Odessa Thursday and went right to the Austin Convention Center to setup for the Austin Green Living Expo. After 5 days of setup/breakdown, showing, and driving I got to relax after delivering a large canvas here in town Monday.
Really enjoyed meeting people and other Artists Friday-Sunday, and very happy to have some of our Art Of Texas artists join in by setting up Sunday for the Buy Local Market area.
