Headed to Chicago Tuesday, April 26th, non-stop from Albuquerque to Chicago on Southwest Airline. Prayers please that the top of the plane doesn’t fly off!!
I have set myself the challenge of posting directly from the Fair frequently.Going with my fabulous gallerist and Energizer Bunny, Karla Winterowd, owner of Winterowd Fine Art , Santa Fe, NM. I am her wingman..er.. woman. We will be taking eight of my landscape paintings along with work from other painters and sculptors in the gallery. Karla has such a great eye for work.
Talking with show attendees about other artists work can be a lot of fun. I learn a lot about collectors perceptions of work when I am at a show like this, not only when they react to my work, but to the other artists and the show as a whole. I have gone with Karla to the Affordable Art Fair in New York four times, so we have a good travel and show rhythm. This is the first time for Art Chicago. We start setting up the booth at 8:00am on Wednesday, egaaaaads . It will be fun to post some before and after photos. Karla does not overhang her booth which I think makes her really stand out. The Adventure continues……
