The one day MID-MAIN ART FAIR on Sunday June 13, was a huge success!
It was a lot of work but well worth it! From selecting the fine artists, planning, and preparing the promotion in all the local newspapers to setting up and spending the day chatting with folks coming through, and selling some of my work, was a real treat.
I met new contacts and clients from my past endeavours such as my former store Enda B. on west 10th Avenue and Royal LePage Real Estate.
Chatting with all the people who came through was very fulfilling. Painting in the studio can sometimes be lonely, since I have been dealing with the public in my past careers.
So, now I have booked the HERITAGE HALL on Main and 15th Avenue, Vancouver, again for next year, Sunday June 12, 2011!Comment on or Share this Article →
Thursday nightís opening of ďSeptessenceĒ a group exhibition (until June 13) of 7 artists at the prestigious Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery on Granville Island, Vancouver, was a huge success! There was lots of laughter, guests spilling out the door, and sales.
Now that this exhibition is under way, Iím in the midst of preparing for another exciting event MID-MAIN ART FAIR at the HERITAGE HALL, 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, on Sunday June 13 from 11 AM to 6 PM.
It is an event which Iím launching with 15 other established successful artists to bring art to the public who may otherwise by shy about investing in art. This is an opportunity for people to chat with the artists, get to know the process of their art and possible buy an original work of fine art for their home.
Iím really proud to have such a talented group involved in this Art Fair.
