The studio sale on April 7, 2013 was lovely. There were a steady stream of visitors and a number of pieces found new homes.
I enjoyed the informality of the day. There was time for conversations. People handled the work, moved it around, tried on mats and frames. I felt relaxed in a way I don’t at gallery openings.
What if it could be like this more often than not?
Lovely thought. I like showing work in a relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy having conversations, about art or about more general topics. I want people to feel comfortable, not wondering what they should say or do. I’m determined to make my art available for sale in new ways. Ways everyone can enjoy. Hasn’t always been like that in the past.
What make seeing art fun for you?
How do you enjoy seeing what an artist is up to? Do you like browsing online or seeing work in real life? What makes it comfortable? Or perhaps more important, what makes it uncomfortable for you (as an artist or a viewer?)
