Shows, Galleries, & Events… Oh My!
Exhibit A Gallery
With the summer art fair season wrapping up quickly over the past month or so, I’ve been busy looking at alternatives to presenting my fine art images to the local market. I’m happy to report that I’m putting together enough galleries and showings over the winter months to keep this fine art ball rolling.
I’m especially happy to announce that thanks to the generosity of Barb at Exhibit A Gallery here in Peoria, I have my first real gallery space. Okay… it’s not so much a space as it is a wall, but I’ll take what I can get. As you can see from the image, I’ve got a number of framed pieces available for purchase so head on out to Junction City in northern Peoria to browse around Exhibit A. Even if you aren’t a fan of my images, Barb keeps a whole collection of local art of all shapes, sizes, and styles.
You know what’s even better? This Friday, November 4th is the 6th Annual Junction City Holiday Open House/Boardwalk. It’s a perfect time to see all of the fun things that Junction City has to offer including the local arts at Exhibit A Gallery!
While you’re out at Junction City, stop by Three Paths Massage Therapy, located in the small building to the south of the main complex, and visit my awesome massage therapist, Jenna. She was also kind enough to let me drop my collection of matted 4″ by 6″ prints off at her business for sale. These make for excellent holiday gifts so make sure to check it out!
Studios on Sheridan – Grand Opening
Also on Friday, November 4th, I’ll be stationed at the brand new artist studios and gallery on Sheridan Road, the Studios on Sheridan! I took a tour of this place last week and I’m so excited to see this empty space becoming a real working artist studio and gallery. Come on out and help us break in this new space and get some holiday shopping done while you’re at it as well!
Peoria Art Guild 8×8 Show
Another exciting event, on Friday, November 11th from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. is the Peoria Art Guild’s Annual 8×8 Show. I’m so excited to be a part of this awesome event and have been for the past three years. Not only does the money go toward charity, but the event is so unique, anyone will tell you it’s one not to miss!
Every piece is only 8 inches by 8 inches, but in a wide range of mediums. For those pieces who haven’t been bought via the “reserve price” listed, an auctioneer starts the bidding off on ALL PIECES at the same price. Every few minutes, the price drops. Whoever grabs the piece off the wall first at the price level receives that piece for that price. When the prices get to $100 or less, it becomes a madhouse!
If you attend any of the events in this post and email me a snapshot from that event, I’ll email you back a special discount code for my print shop for 25% off your order!
