I met so many cool people! I was in awe of the great people involved in the art show I was a part of on Friday.
Tammy W from www.LimeLighter.ca threw a wicked party for us all. Live music, incredible ambiance, cool artists, and me.
Mandy Stobo is plain ol’ Rad. She paints bad portraits, really good too. Her large art is pretty much the opposite of my photography. Messy, random, and freaky. and. oh. so. cool. Bad Portraits is even cooler than that too. You can send her your face and she will make it bad.
Jo Luke Giles is really low key and completely incredible using whatever he can get his hands on to make his art.
And also me.
The venue was really great. Village Brewery is at least 33% responsible for my meteoric rise to fame in my own mind, as they host these really cool Wednesday meet and greets that I attended 1 of a while ago, that day I met all the people I now cohort with in the art and photography world. And I am completely in love with their Village Blacksmith beer that I drink from a growler. Drinking my beer from a growler makes me at least 47% cooler in my own mind.
I sold some of my pictures too. Bonus! I was happy just being included in the incredibly hip crowd that was brave and rad enough brave the blizzard happening outside.
Total success for my very first art show!
Sunday Traci and I rented a booth in the Fort Calgary Artisan Fair. She with her amazingly glamorous jewellery and me with my images. Almost no one showed up for this Fair, but the ones who did came straight to our booth and bought something. In a craft fair where most vendors never covered the cost of the table rental, we were floating in dollar bills! Woot for us! We rock! say us.
Oh yeah. I bought a ridiculously cool paisley jacket that helped propagate the idea that I am cooler than I am. It worked! Fool’d em’ all!
Oh, and this was the large canvas print. that bad boy is 5’ tall!
It was very popular and probably 63% responsible for me selling what I sold!
Oh, Friday night there was commerce happening for the first 3 hours of the Event and the last 2 hours was pure party! It was a fantastic evening!
