It’s been a good year. In August, I placed 6 prints and 2 canvases on consignment at Bangkok Thai and Sushi restaurant (Algonquin, IL). The art work is still there so if you’re in the area, stop on by, order some food, relax and enjoy the prints. Both the Japanese and Thai food at this restaurant are very good.
I exhibited at my first juried art show at Art in the Barn (Barrington, IL) in September. The show was wildly successful in terms of generating awareness and sales. Great traffic and great positive feedback on the art. This year Art in the Barn attracted over 180 artists and 5,000 attendees. I plan on exhibiting there next year as well.
As a result of the show, I was offered and accepted a freelance assignment shooting for Chalet Landscaping (Wilmette, IL). This was also a first—working on location with an Art Director, Marketing Manager and Copywriter. Feedback from the client and the creative team was very positive and I can’t wait to see the final campaign results.
Finally, in December I donated two prints to the Turning Point Christmas luncheon benefit held at the Boulder Ridge Country Club (Lake in the Hills, IL). This annual charitable function supports abused and battered women and over 400 people attended this year. A special thanks to the person whose bid was accepted on the prints—enjoy the art work knowing that the proceeds went to a very good cause.
So what’s in store for 2013? Stay tuned—more to follow…
