It has been a while since my last entry. Between the holiday season, my yearly holiday party, the family coming in from the West Coast and my latest show, it’s been a very busy time.
Marie and I packed up 37 pieces and drove for two days to show for four days at the One of a Kind Show in Chicago. I sold two pieces and received lots of praise. It was very gratifying. There were over 600 “vendors” but the show felt more like a gift show with a lot of artists rather then a fine art show. I am not planning to show there again but there were big crowds and it was incredibly well run.
I do wonder if these “retail” shows are a good fit for me and my work. I do like showing my work but does it help me on my path to a museum or with the recognition I seek? So as I ponder the upcoming year, I look forward to what it will bring.
Happy New Year.
