It's Been Emotional*

I was featured in the Knoxville News Sentinel for their Artist Spotlight a couple of Sundays ago. Not only is this exciting but also pretty emotional for me, for lack of a better word.

When money is tight and I feel like I'm working too much, something like this goes a long way.

I loved the timing of the article, too. It came out a couple of days before my show at Old City Java and my group show at the Birdhouse with 17th Street Studios.

 I had been toying around with the idea to have the show Art For the People at OC Java where anyone could bid on my work. While it's important for me to support myself financially to continue down this road, I want to learn at the same time how to make my artwork accessible to people. I want people to understand it and also feel like it's something they could take home with them.

 My work at Old City Java is still up and I'm still taking offers on it. To learn more about this, go here. I REALLY want this work to be yours!

The show Amalgam Volume 2 also just opened last weekend. This was a wonderful experience for me. I've been managing 17th Street Studios for about three years now and am finally feeling like we are hitting a stride. I'm so impressed with the artists I share my work space with and their work. I'm grateful to be a part of this space and group of people.

 If you want to check out either show, Art for the People will be up until October 28 at Old City Java in Knoxville and Amalgam Volume 2 will be up until October 27 at the Birdhouse. I also have artwork showing at Fido in Nashville until the end of the month.
