I hate to say it, but my first solo show is coming to a close. It was a good run, my art’s been hanging at Crema for about two months. It was a great experience and I’ve loved having people email me or call me to tell me that they saw my art there. I’ve had people I don’t know call me and leave me messages just for no other reason than to tell me how much they loved my paintings. I mean, who gets to experience that kind of unsolicited acknowledgement that maybe, perhaps, they are taking their life in the right direction afterall? Apparently I do. Or at least I have. But I like it.
So Crema is open today, tomorrow, and Saturday until 3pm. I’m going to invite everyone who bought their pieces to swing by and pick them up anytime on Saturday. And I’ll show up at around 3 on Saturday to begin dismantling the place.
If you get a chance to see it before it’s gone, please do so. i’ll have more shows, but this one was particularly special. I will definitely want to show there again one day.
Also, i got an email inviting me to the Works with Words group panel discussion at the Library this Saturday. This would be something where I would get up and talk about my art and answer questions, etc. On one hand, it sounds kind of cool, because this is something that “real” artists do, right? But on the other hand, it sounds a little nerve-racking. But I do have a real excuse. I guess. Does it sound bad to say I’m probably not going to do it because I’m getting my hair did?
Give a gallery talk or go to a hair party? Did Rauschenberg have to make decisions like this?
