Art Shows Aren't Just For Galleries
I just hung my colored pencil art in a senior assisted living residence. The home is called Brooking Park and it's lovely. They have a beautiful room that serves as a conference/event room. Each month artists are invited to display original work. I was able to put prices on my paintings and decoupage plates, which was wonderful. More important than selling my work, though, is the good feeling that I have in showing my work to this audience. I know the residents will really enjoy seeing original art during the month of September. As I was hanging the pieces I talked a bit with some people. Everyone was enthusiastic and friendly. One gentleman cautioned me not to hit my thumb as I hammered nails into the wall! It's a win-win situation for sure. I get to feel good selling and displaying my art while the folks who live at Brooking Park get to enjoy a real solo art show!
