May Event

Here is a not-so-great photo of me in the Gateway Golf and Country Club. I will be displaying my artwork through the month of May. This weekend, May 1, is an open house and community event that should generate some traffic.

Normally, I set up an art display, such as the one our League did at the Ponce de'Leon Plaza in downtown Fort Myers. You hope and wait for people to come to you. In this event, we are taking our wares to the public: where they live, work and play. Each artist in our League is being given one month to display their wares. This event will give us exposure on a more personal level. These are the people we know in our own neighborhoods.

Our first artist to display in April is now negotiating on a large mural commission from this event. Leads, exposure, references; this is the lifeblood of the art community. Winning prizes and competitions is rewarding, but the bread and butter lies in commission work. Wish me luck!
