The Show

Updated: Oct 15, 2018


2 May 2018 The Art Expo / Solo NY show has come and gone. On the plus side, I sold four pieces. As exhausting as it is to be “on display” for four days, I do get a lot of praise for my work and get to meet a lot of people, including artists. I really do enjoy talking to other artists, whatever their chosen medium is and whatever their skill level. It is so inspiring to meet people who are on a similar path what is basically a solitary pursuit. On the negative side, this is a expensive event, it’s a complicated and crowded location, and did I mention exhausting? I owe so much to Marie as she is the true logistic and strategic “brains” of the operation. I really couldn’t do this without her, and her Excel spreadsheets.


There are so few places for independent artists to show and a major draw of this show is to make connections with gallery owners, art buyers, and other people in the art world, from art magazine publishers to curators. I do hand out plenty of show postcards and business cards and I try to run down every lead but rarely do they materialize. I suspect this is a bit like dating. There are lots of good will and positive intensions out there but finding relationships that “click” are few and far between. Still, in the words of Winston Churchill, “Those who dare, risk defeat. Those who don’t, ensure it.”


So I will keep plugging along and ifI do my best, I will at least have a body of work that I can be proud of.

Oh, and this is Brad. A new piece that sold,… it didn’t stick around very long.
