StARTup Art Fair: Video & Photos from Room 321

The StARTup Art Fair was an exhilarating success! Over the course of the 3-day art fair, my fellow exhibitor, Shannon Amidon, and myself gave away hundreds of cards and talked to close to a thousand people about our art. Here's a video of our room on Day 1:

The Fair takes place at Hotel del Joie in the Marina District of San Francisco. It was a gorgeous, sunny weekend, which helped bring out a record number of attendees. We transformed our regular hotel suite into a gallery by moving all the furniture, papering the walls, bringing additional lights and hanging our work without nails - it's magic! It was a lot of work, but well worth it. You can see a big of our process in this slideshow:

I couldn't have asked for a better exhibition partner! We were honored to have both been selected off our joint exhibition proposal, Seeking Harmony, a theme which really resonated with many of our audience.

Oh yes, and we got some press coverage too:

I'll be posting more about the couple of new series I debuted at the event soon, so stay tuned.

Pickles Galore: Pop-Up Show on Sunday 2/12

What?

What does "Pickles Galore" mean anyway? Answer: absolutely nothing. Here's how my fellow exhibiting artists and I came up with the name - we all wrote two random words on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, and picked out various combinations. I guess we were in a silly mood that day, because the best combination was "Pickles Galore."

Who?

This show features 9 artists who I have been meeting with once a month for the past year in a Peer Critique Group. What's a "peer critique group"? Good question. This is a group of artists who gets together and gives constructive criticism about each other's art. This particular group is made up of LAAA/Gallery 825 members.

Curator

The show is curated by the fantastic Linda Vallejo, who is picking the work tomorrow, so we'll all be surprised on Sunday! 

Come join us!
