Art to the Avenue 2012
I said I wanted to share my work much more this year, and the purpose of my Kickstarter project is to be able to fund production of new work to be able to share at major events throughout the year.
I have been very busy getting ready for the Greenwich Arts Council's upcoming annual spring celebration of the arts, Art to the Avenue 2012.
This will be fifteenth year that retailers on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, Connecticut will play host to works from over 130 or so visual artists. In effect, the surrounding area of downtown Greenwich becomes a huge art gallery for all visitors to see the whole month of May.
This week I had the opportunity to submit my work for Art to the Avenue Retailer Preview where the works are viewed and artists are selected by retailers to be hosted in one of the participating businesses of this fantastic art event.
I only get to Greenwich a few times per year to visit my God-Mother and God-Sister. Sometimes I miss Haitian food and my God-Mother's food is awesome! :D Greenwich Avenue also has some of my favorite places to eat. I enjoy China Pavilion the most as my favorite place to eat on the Ave, not very fancy compared to all that surrounds it but truly I enjoy the food and I like the lady behind the counter she is always very nice to me.
My earliest memories with Greenwich Avenue was when I lived on Connecticut Avenue in Stamford and would ride my bike from Stamford to Greenwich just to get to one of the few comic book stores in the area. I took my comic books very seriously back then. I guess that paved the way to my introduction to manga, anime I already loved ages before. I passed that store this week and it is an Art Gallery now.
Mr. NOBODY has been spending a lot of time in Greenwich lately even the people at the APPLE STORE seem to remember seeing him around. I guess I'll see in a week or so if he will be spending even more time their this May. I will update with more news of this event soon.
