That was us, stop number 9 on your 2012 Artprowl Program and we couldn’t have asked for two better days of warm sunny weather to have it. We had the front lobby of the library and it worked great, they had also just installed a hanging system for pictures which was handy. It was nice to be sharing this type of experience with your family & friends let alone showing together…note the picture of two content artists photo-mugging. My son Matt has a style of his own and is really starting to produce larger works, note the tall non-plaided one standing next to him. Size 20 shoe and just under 8 foot tall, but friendly. For myself the hardest part was figuring out which 18 pieces I was going to show in the lobby (nice problem, huh?) I settled on a cross section of my work vs. any series. Lucky for me I was also able to show 6 pieces on the far wall inside the library…first time my fall reflection series hung together, it looked great…really showed my abilities to stretch within a set subject matter and style, yet produce different outcomes. It was very enjoyable 2 days sharing and talking about our art, can’t wait until next time.
Mixed media 9×12. I could of titled this the house of a thousand works, layer after layer of squares and lines built over each other. It had a nice rainbow effect but the squares became lost, the whole piece became a color. I then tried framing a few with marker and a silver paint stick, then a few became several dozen…and the piece starting breathing…or it could have been the fumes…I have a fan now !!! Look closely at each little framed work, if blown up on a large canvas each could be a work to itself.
I have a show coming up and have been playing with the layout, course it will change again once all of these are framed and matted. I am lucky enough to be able to show for a full 2 months, and I am toying with the idea of two different setups…one each month. The hard part will be picking what makes the available space. If any of them really appeal to you leave a comment, at this point I can use the input. Thks
