Sold!


Bare Branches II, single block relief print
3"x4", Speedball water-soluble inks on Strathmore Bristol 2006


I put two prints into the recent International Miniature Print Exhibition at the Ottawa School of Art, and both of them sold! The gallery/school has been less than brilliant at communicating anything to any of the participants. I had to find out that I was accepted through a printmaker in the area who went to the exhibition and let me know (and took photos of the exhibit itself). I had to find out that I sold one piece from her email, and another piece from my Aunt's email to me after she and her son had visited the show. I'm happy that I was accepted and thrilled that my work sold, but really, a little communication on the part of the organizers wouldn't kill them. Ah, well!

Unfortunately, it has been my experience that such a lack in communication is universal in the art world. It seems establishments can get a little annoyed at artists calling to find out the latest news about their work and admittedly some do go a little overboard with being obsessive, but generally I've found communication in group shows a offish. I recently sent out work to be featured in a show in Suffolk VA and signed a paper saying the museum's insurance would cover damages in the event of storms aka "ACTS OF GOD" and the like. They had a few tornados come through a couple of days ago and I didn't bother calling because I figured everyone else and their mother was doing the same thing and plus I was covered either way. Anyways, I got an email saying everything was okay like 5 days after the fact! :) Congratulations on your sales!
