This is an invitation to see my work and have a chat at the 31st annual Brighton Fine Art & Accoustic Music Festival, AUGUST 1-3, 2014
While shopping for art online can be a convenient, inspiring and at times overwhelming way to discover artists who would have otherwise remained unknown to you, the experience cannot compare to seeing the work in person accompanied by the opportunity to speak directly with the artists who make it.
Going to an art fair gives you the chance to ask questions, discover what motivated the artists to create their art and generally become more informed about each piece before you buy it. For the artists, it is an opportunity to better understand their patrons and gain insight into what attracts people to one piece over another.
Despite these advantages, many artists prefer to show exclusively in galleries, shops and online venues where face-to-face encounters are rarely required. Personally, I am always looking for opportunities to share my art in more interactive ways and love discussing my work with people who are drawn to it.
So, for those of you in Michigan during the first weekend in August, I will be showing my work at the 2014 Brighton Fine Art & Acoustic Music Festival. This is a wonderful mid-sized event tucked alongside the beautiful Mill Pond in downtown Brighton. It’s a scenic walk filled with a wide variety of fine art, acoustic music, good food and quaint shops.
While I greatly appreciate all those who have bought my pieces online, I am looking forward to meeting many of you in person. Can’t make this event? Not to worry, I have several more announcements coming up, so stay tuned.
