A year and a half ago Maria (my wife and Business Manager) contacted Crush Wine Bistro about the possibility of me having a First Friday art show there. That’s definitely the longest waiting list we’ve been on for an art show so far. That gave us a lot of time to think about which paintings to show. Then, about two months prior to my art show, we found out that Sacks Cafe closed, and that Crush moved into that space. We went with the flow, and adjusted the number of paintings to hang on the walls, since the space was now totally different. This is my first time showing at this venue, and so far I’m pleased with the exposure and sales that it has generated. If you haven’t gone to the new Crush location yet, check it out this week. My art is coming down on Sunday, October 29th. You can purchase paintings and prints directly from Crush. The best part about this venue is that the commission is only 5%! That’s unheard of in this town. Normally, it ranges between 20% – 50%. That’s one reason I like having First Fridays at my studio. Speaking of which, we’ll be hosting one in November. Our studio is inside the 4th Avenue Market Place in Suite 4 (333 W. 4th Avenue). Stop by between 5:30 – 7:30. We’ll clean up the painting studio and turn it into a pop-up gallery for the evening.
