It’s that time of year – small, giftable, shippable, affordable art, even in a time of covid could be a nice thing. After figuring out I could offer free shipping on all my recent ‘squares’, I signed up for a virtual art market run by Artspan which allowed people to visit my ‘booth’ (live video chat with me and my art) but no one showed up!! The organizer did a lot of marketing, as did I, but I guess it didn’t ‘stick’.
So next, I coerced a friendly gallerist to let their walls be populated by a small group of artists for a ‘real’ Holiday Art Market – despite the rising pandemic numbers, San Francisco is still fairly safe, possibly because most of us really do observe Covid protocols. So, we can have 6 people there at a time, including staff. We’re halfway through now, one weeknight and one weekend gone and one of each to go. So far two of my boxed painted bird cards have found new homes and one amazing photograph of artist, Jeff Griffiths has also been sold. Also in the show are street photographer, JB Higgins and Collage artist, Linda Mcgilvray, in addition to Gallery owner Michael Endicott who kindly hung his amazing metal printed photo pieces in the back half of the gallery. Here are a few pictures.
If you read this before the show ends, and you’re in the area, do stop in! Five starving artists need you! Details below:
