This was my first year to participate in “Art in the Square” and I must say it did not disappoint!!!! First of all, the weather could not have been more beautiful and there was significant traffic that began at 10:00am and lasted all day!!
I met many interesting artists and art lovers alike and there was much discussion on my work. Most comments were made on my piece titled “Jollyville” which is actually a bit of an oxymoron, since Jollyville is a very sad and deserted place. There were also comments both pro and con about my black and white print on canvas of “Lake Altus Tires”. Some people just can’t wrap there head around “tires in a lake” being ART on a wall! The crowd seemed fond of my Automobile photos and were most drawn to my colorful Beach Series.
I had my handy dandy helpers, Kevin (the muscle) and Julie (the beauty to draw in traffic) without whom I could not have managed!!! As far as breaking down my set-up, Patti and Larry (my sister and brother-in-law) arrived just in time and were oh-so helpful!!!
I ended up making some sales and have decided that it was definitely a worthwhile venture. I even ended up on http://tulsaartspot.com!!!!
I hope to see you next year at Utica Square’s “Art in the Square ” to be held Saturday October 6th, 2012!!!!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
