Opening night was jammed with people. As an artist alone in the studio most of the time this is a real switch to be around crowds. I found it very uplifting to have visual confirmation that this many people have an interest in ART!!! The attendance for Art Chicago last year was 50,000 and expectations for this year are for an even higher number!
The NEXT Fair happening, well next door is a treat also lots of young hip edgy up and coming artist’s work along with a New American Paintings curated MFA show. Friday we met many college students and artist hopefuls….. Made me grateful for our Art community in Santa Fe, the best.
Karla and I have been busy chatting it up with lots of collectors. It is sooo meaningful to have the opportunity to dialog with collectors interested in my work.
We have had some amazing food too. Last night we tried Rick Bayless, Frontera grill, amazing!!!
