Lighten Up

For the past couple of years, I’ve been using distinctive displays for my wares. While these are eye catching and mostly effective, they are HEAVY! I came up with an all aluminum bracelet rack which is so much lighter and hopefully easier for the viewer to see.  Next big event to try this out will be Art Westport (Kansas City) in Sept.

Future Events

I’ve applied for half a dozen shows for fall/holiday season. I still waiting to hear back on most of them. Here’s what I’ve got lined up so far:

I’m delighted to be returning to Art Westport in KCMO, Sept 8-10!!! I’m planning to be in a large tent divided into quad spaces (usually on Pennsylvania, near Doughnut Lounge).

Also returning to Bizarre Bazaar in Lawrence KS, Nov 24& 25 (Thanksgiving weekend)

Looks like there will be more “Car Trunk Tetris” to be played.

End of the Year Wrap Up-still in the black!

Here’s 2016 summary.This was an off year due to rotator cuff repair in May.  The rehab went well but it was slow and frustrating.

I participated in nine events this year-a little less than last year.  I returned to the marketplace in June with Maker Faire which was great. I ended the year with the Recycle Santa Fe Art Fest in Dec.  I participated in new events-Summit Art Fest and Kansas City Comicon.  I did not make the cut for Art Westport-probably a combo of weak photos of my work and new management/judges. I’m planning to apply for 2017. My work is in transition-using more flatware, less bike parts.

My booth arrangement keeps evolving-going lean and clean. I’m slow and fussy about my set up but breaking down is much faster.

There were other diversions this year including a pilgrimage to North Carolina to check out  Art-o-mat headquarters. So cool. I won’t be hosting a machine but I am proud to be an “Artist in Cellophane”.

Looking forward 2017.
