ArtExpo 2017 Review

Thrilled to have exhibited at ArtExpo New York for the third time. 


Now in its 39th year, this annual art fair takes place on Pier 94 in NYC, a huge space that held 400+ booths.


Set up day is always exciting. The whole show and all its possibilities are ahead of you. 


It is also a bit overwhelming as you have to set up the booth


With a bit of time, some nails and perhaps a little magic...voila!


Of course there is the obligatory artist in the booth shot.


Happily as the days passed, some red dots appeared.


Saw some exhibitors I knew and met new ones as well.


And spent many hours connecting with the other artists in my row.


I made a number of connections that I am hopeful will lead to some future opportunities. And some of my favorites now have a new home.


I will slowly be adding some of the unsold pieces to my online shop. Right now, click here to browse all the 4"x4" pieces available.


Until next year......

The Sunday Papers: 13

Welcome to The Sunday Papers. Grab a cuppa, get comfy and turn the virtual pages. Didn't get last week's paper delivery? See every edition here.

ART CRUSH
 Today's paper features a single work of art from a single artist: Glenda Miles - my art crush this week. 


In early April, Glenda attended a workshop I was teaching at the mixed media retreat Art is You in Santa Rosa, California. The class, a new one for me, was called Table of Contents. The brief was to create a series of bound booklets, each of which reflected a chapter of your life and all of which were then wrapped up inside book covers.  

The class was filled with talented people but Glenda's creation and the stories behind it moved me so that I wanted to share it with you. Wish you could all hold this and turn every page!




















You can also find Glenda on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter
