Getting ready for another art market. Hope to see you there!

AND the kid’s shirts I made for last winter’s market have been resurrected! It’s a long story, but basically I ruined them, and now I have fixed them and they are ready for you!

2013 Texas Contemporary Art Fair

This weekend I went to the Texas Contemporary Art Fair.  This time it was very fancy with a VIP lounge (which I had a pass) and a lot of local art.  There were so many great pieces, it was kind of overwhelming.

2013 Houston Fine Art Fair

I know this happened a couple weeks ago, but I forget to post anything about it anywhere…

On Sept 22 I was invited to go to the Houston Fine Art Fair in downtown Houston and of course I said yes!  It was AMAZING!  There was sooo much to look at and I I loved getting to meet some of the artists.  We made it through the whole fair and looked at every single piece.  We could take pictures, but I was still a little afraid to take pictures of art.  You can’t usually take photos in a gallery.  I don’t have all of the artist’s names, but if you go to houstonfineartfair.com you can see everyone who was there.

After that, Kim and I went across the street to Discovery Green and watched an Australian act called Strange Fruit.

This weekend I am going to the Texas Contemporary Art Fair and I will be sure to post pictures sooner this time.

Artist Alert!

Hey!  You may have noticed I added some links on my site.  The featured artists area is a new spot where I show artist’s blogs who I admire and think needs some recognition.

WiredAntiks is a new blog by a local artist (and a close relative) who is not so new to the arts.  She has been around the Caribbean Sea and back, creating art as she goes.  Now, she is sporting her newly obtained degree in Interior Design at Eklektik Interiors and trying to continue her art on the side.  Like all artists, there is nothing more she would love than to sell her creations.  I know as well as anyone what it is like to be a working artist.  We are a thriving group.

So definitely go check out her new site.  Eventually she will be set up to sell her art from her blog, but give her a little time to get everything together.  WiredAntiksBlogArtScrnsht

Society6 is where I sell my art in the form of products like stationary, shirts, phone cases, art prints, and other very necessary things.

So go look at that if you like my ink cards and other graphic art.  I am going to try to get some more ink pen drawings on there soon, but I am in school again so my time is being stolen from me.

The Artist’s Link Project

I strongly believe in networking, especially for artists.  The internet is a “godsend” for starving artists and I think we should use the crap out of it.  If you want to have your art featured on my site then send me your story!  I will put you on my Featured Artists and post something about you and your art.  I know, I don’t have an extremely large following, but I want to help somehow and hopefully start a trend.

This is a give and take exercise, so I encourage you to find artists you admire or think need a helping hand, put a good word out to the universe and feel good that you are one of the few human beings who are passionate about something. I also believe in giving credit where credit is due, so please, please don’t forget to link to their page and don’t be afraid to name drop.  I can’t tell you how much it irritates me when I see a wonderful piece of art, look to see who the artist is, and it’s nowhere to be found!

The point of this project is to create a chain.  So do your part and hopefully someone will do the same for you.  The artist community of the world needs to stick together.

Peace
