Spring for Art: the results
Well, it's just one of those things. After borrowing a truck, hauling the paintings, hanging the artwork, fretting over what I should wear [I chose shorts and flip-flops, by the way], after all that, the night was a dud. I would guess around fifteen groups of people came through Coffee Rani last night and of those only five or six groups actually showed any interest in the artwork. Two people commented that this years Spring for Art was poorly advertised and that the side roads were not blocked off as in previous years. So that and the earlier rain and overall humidity of the evening all combined to form a big ball of blah.
On a positive note, all those who came to look at art were enthusiastic about my artwork and only had positive things to say [I immodestly admit]. And I was able to meet a couple of people who had previously seen and liked my work. I handed out a dozen or so business cards, and the owner of Coffee Rani is graciously allowing the artwork to hang for another couple of weeks and offering her wall space for the next Spring for Art in the Fall of the year.
So I'd say it was a solid moral victory . . . which is not quite as good as an actual victory. You take what you can get, right?
Highly recommended if you're in the area:
