I completed the show than ran form May 4-10 at Main(st)udios. The turnout was great. For the opening we had somecompetition with three events down the road including 2 theaters and a band, along with further downtown hosting multiple art gallery openings. We had an amazing turn out considering.
One of the pieces made it into the Burchfield Penny Show "artists among us" that just opened this friday. Also 4 of the 10 pieces were requested to be kept in the display windows of the gallery for aprox. a month with possibly more face time after there as well!
After all this running around my next goal is to create catalogs (which are going out this weekend) that will be sent to galleries in neighboring cities, in hopes to show this series again. I'm currently looking at Olean, Rochester, and Syracuse NY to receive my first catalogs after they have been printed.
The show ended with a total of 12 pieces. 1 large portrait on the wall that measured 80" x 58" 3 Digital prints (framed) 1 Oil Painting and 5 Acrylics, some on canvas and some on custom made panels. There were also 2 smaller portraits that were studies or smaller versions of their larger counterpart that were printed out and framed to help see the individual pieces success and or process.
I will be sending out thank you cards and any other rewards next weekend, I will be including a copy of the catalog (sending to the prints this weekend) along with everyone's rewards which will see this project to it's conclusion of being established and ready to be shown again.
I will also be updating my website further this week to have photographs of the show and get all the portraits up. please check back later this week to see the updated site,
This was an awesome process and I thank everyone who was involved in any way =)
