06/06/2005: "How do you take your coffee?"
My sister in South Dakota called today to see if she and her family could visit June 18th. She was here last summer and really loved it. I'm excited but this means I really have to kick up my painting schedule in order to get ready for the July 1 opening. I've also had to cancel a big party I was to host on the 18th.
I went down on Saturday to see where Iíll be showing and itís pretty small, I may not have room for all of my paintings which means fewer to have to finish. The walls are YELLOW! I took a photo of the walls and then virtually hung my pieces on them in PhotoShop but the colors don't seem to clash.
Heritage is a cute coffee shop, I swore Iíd never show in a coffee house because of crap lighting and a host of other reasons (like my work being too ďnudeĒ) but this particular series doesnít have any nudity and Heritage is in good location and is set up to show artwork with permanent hanging fixtures and track lighting etc. so I feel better about it.
This will be my first coffee house show so Iím not sure what to expect. I think they still take at least a 25% commission and not sure how opening night will work since they sell food and drinkÖhmmm, does anyone else have experience with showing in a coffee house? Iíd like to know what your experience was like.
