Just a quick shout out to all of my followers,even though it is late notice I would like to invite everyone to my annual Holiday show from December 16th( Friday evening) until December 18th (Sunday evening) at the Del Ray Artisan Gallery in Historic Del Ray, Alexandria. For more information please click the following link: http://delrayartisans.org/event/holiday-market-2016/ to see dates,times and other information for the show.
This is a small show that I participate each year where local artists make and sell their art. I have been a member of this organization for a couple of years now and believe it is important to sell LOCALLY and have the support of your community. Making everyone aware of what you do and to exchange ideas and information with other artisans to be able to make the artistic community stronger and where the local community has the possibility support us during the holiday season. I hope that you will all come out and support your local artists where ever they may be. Most artists will tell you, that it is not easy to put yourself out there , but necessary to stimulate new ideas and learn the ropes of artistic commerce.
Some, are better than others, but it is important to participate and take in the feedback from your followers, patrons and other artists in order to move forward with your craft or even change direction.
(Above) is a picture of my shared studio where the opening was last week. Sorry ,that I have only posted it now, but since the Thanksgiving weekend, myself and my studio partner have been preparing and cleaning the studio so that it was presentable for our studio open house. Hope you will all come out and visit me either at the holiday show in Del Ray or at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in studio #332
