I snapped a few quick pics with my droid phone after my assistant Jenipher and I installed my artwork at the Maitland Art Center last Friday. I am thankful for Jenipher and really enjoyed having her assistance. My day started early, loading art into my suv, art which had already been packed in bags in prior days of preparation to be on site by 9am. This particular event is one where people can buy and take right away, so small pieces are mixed in with larger pieces. Jen had school so I finished up hanging art the rest of the afternoon to return home at 3, grabbed a Jimmy Johns Veggie sub for lunch, ate while watching the rest of Ellen, put my feet up, answered calls and emails, then showered and dressed to return for the event
Also when I returned at 5 a light was "out" on "Envisage" so we thought, but after getting a ladder out and changing the bulb we discovered it was just on a different switch.iCrave was tasty! I had a black bean burger and it was so scrumptious I went back and took one for the road at the end of the night.
The featured artists me and Jon have our work in the museum gift shop.See my mugs, bags, cards, and paintings.
Then that very same day at 9 pm, the pieces that were not sold come back. Sales and art collectors are databased the next morning. I send out thank you and certificates of authenticity to my art collectors. And then stage an area with works for my next exhibit "Amalgamation" in May, and also another area for pieces going to galleries. Just a glimpse into a day in the life of an artist's one night exhibition.
