The paintings that hang from the walls of a gallery is only one section of the work that goes into an art show. A web of networks has to be woven from the local community to the press. Marketing material has to be designed- web and print and all promotions have to be distributed. Timing is key and organization is essential. For an artist who creates the art, designs the marketing material and promotes the show, the last month shifts from a hobby to a job.
Magnets and stickers have become my main source of advertising. Conversations often arise quickly after an introduction regarding a memory of a magnet above the taps at Señor Grubby’s or a sticker on the Pizza Port bottle shop front door. What was once a inexpensive way to share my work has become an excellent way to promote my ideas.
