Is it possible to be Relevant and Reclusive?
That’s the pressing question for one who feels relatively Anonymous yet still has the good opportunity to sell stuff. Today there is an article in the NYT, Art section on page 24, by Jesse McKinley, “Fake Artifact by an Unknown? Sold!” It explores the luck and obscurity of these points in regard to Bruce High Quality and what this odd-ball-hard-to-define- incubator can offer fledgling artists…in a very off the beaten path way. nytimes.com/design
What’s up this week? Great recap for our art show hosted by Joe Rocco and Catherine. We had minimal press so there was a predominant sound of crickets in the space between Joe playing acoustic guitar and chatting with our closest artist friends. But being reclusive by nature after an overly busy work week with 8-4 demands gave us a Friday night pace that was just right. Michael and I agreed that we were fine with not feeling the pressure of labeling and price-pointing-promoting-pontificating about our latest works…to strangers. There is a huge mental benefit to falling way below a mark set by someone like Banksy. maybe it doesn’t pay, but it sure does saturate the comfort zone.
What to do this next week? Go to the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum at Flagler College. Located at 48 Sevilla Street, Saint Augustine FL. 32084. [email protected] My roommate is having her BFA artshow Senior Portfolio Exhibition. The dates Dec 12-14, 2013. The opening reception is Thursday, Dec 12, 5-9 p.m. Please join me Thursday evening to support Amelia Eldridge with her great accomplishment. One of her charcoal drawings was published on the cover of the college’s literature mag.
