Yesterday I went to B-town to meet with the manager of tribeca clothing store. I answered an ad in the paper a few months ago for 'seeking artists'. Turns out they are rather new to being part of the First Friday Art Walk that takes place in Burlington. The energy is good there and I'm happy to be a part of it.
She liked my mixed media work, so October will be my month. Its a great place, small, hip, and industrial. The shop is part of all the others that line up on an outdoor brick mall type setting. A place where pedestrians eat, walk, hang out etc. I'm looking forward to seeing my stuff in such a sleek building. It's where I've fantasized my art hanging...on beautifully colored walls mixed with old brick. Ironic it is a clothing store since I'm one of the worst dressed people on the planet. (believe me 'what not to wear people' would probably refuse to deal with me)
It's something different to do. They do the advertising, have the food available, and don't take a commission. It's worth trying despite my unwavering belief that no one buys art in Burlington unless its inexpensive. I would love to be proven wrong!
