Tomorrow, May 26, I will be at the Art & Design Open Market in Old Town Pasadena. I’ll be peddling my wares, so keep a look out for my table. There will also be a ton of other artists so come check out all the work.
This past Sunday was the Art + Design Open Market in Old Town Pasadena, hosted by One Colorado, Pasadena City College, and Art Center College of Design. This was my first time participating in this event, as well as my first time presenting my work for sale to the public. Here’s a big thanks to everyone who came out and supported not only myself, but all the other artists as well.
Despite the heat, I had a great time and felt like I got some pretty good exposure. I met a few great artists and a lot of cool people. I even sold a few prints! I’m definitely going to do it again next time around. Stay tuned for updates!
There was a recent article on ESPN.com about Babe Ruth’s home going on sale in Sudbury, Massachusetts. He began building the house when he was still playing for the Boston Red Sox and completed after he was traded to the New York Yankees.
The article related a story which I found very interesting. One night during a party at a rented cabin on nearby Willis Pond, Ruth pushed an upright piano onto the frozen surface of the pond. It remained there until the ice thawed in the spring and the piano sank to the bottom, where according to legend it remains to this day.
The story captivated my imagination, which culminated in the piece you see before you. If you happen to like it enough, prints will be sold at the upcoming Art + Design Open Market in Pasadena. See my previous post for all the pertinent information. Thanks for looking!
Art + Design Open Market & Sneak Peek Work-in-Progress
Over the past few months, life has been pretty hectic. I am now currently employed full-time. While the cash flow is nice, it becomes harder to create new work. But have no fear, work is being created as we speak.
This coming Sunday, May 20, 2012, I will be participating in the One Colorado Art + Design Open Market. Here’s the info:
Art + Design Open Market Sunday, May 20, 10am – 5pm This one-day free event showcases over 100 local artists in the historic central Courtyard and pedestrian alleys, giving shoppers a unique and charming environment to discover and support new artistic talent from Pasadena’s leading cultural institutions: Pasadena City College and Art Center College of Design. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the artists. The Open Market will also feature live music.
One Colorado is one city block bounded by Fair Oaks, Colorado Boulevard, DeLacey and Union Street in Old Pasadena.
I will have prints of my work for sale as well as a few original pieces. If you’re going to be in the Pasadena area, or would like to make a special trip, come by and check out all the amazing art that will be available for purchase. I hope to see you all there!
Until then, here’s a little glimpse of something I’m currently working on. The final product will be available as a print this coming Sunday. Spread the word!
