Mac Worthington Artist Reception 2

Annie and I made the trip up to Columbus on Saturday evening for the monthly Mac Worthington Gallery Artist Reception. The weather was gloomy but it was nice and warm inside the gallery.

Midwest Art Center v.2.0

 So lately i've been considering what version 2.0 of the MAC website should include as far as NEW features.  I'll list the ideas and explain a little about how that functionality should operate.  Most importantly, I'd like all your feedback so collectively we can build an interactive social networking site that helps artists market their works.  Thanks!

 

Photographing Art

  Sometimes photographing art can be a challenge.  I photograph every piece so I can provide prints for clients and  they must be high quality to represent  a true representation of an oil painting .  In a perfect world a copy stand would be used but not investing in this has only forced us to be a better photographers.  There are many circumstances to contend with on any gived day.  

Taking time to learn from other artists.

Well, this is my first attempt at blogging, here goes.......

I thought I would share with all you fellow artists, who are looking to get involved in something outside of their studio space, about my experience over the past year.

My Last Weekend of Spring Break!

After having taken 5 classes in a row towards my MBA at Strayer University this year my spring break has truly been time off....

Finished

I started a painting several months ago and never finished it.  I wasn't sure what it needed but after being inspired to look out into the world I saw black in everything, and a complete grey scale in all the colors.  That's what it needed.  I was anxious to get back at it and so I did, and in a couple of days I was able to add more color with lots of value.  Deep black to rich white added to color made it all pop.  It's signed and finished now.  I don't know why I didn't see what it needed sooner, all my other paintings have the richness of value, now this one

March 26th Art Event at the MAC

The event last night at the Midwest Art Consortium (MAC) went well Annie and I enjoyed seeing some folks we hadn’t seen in years. We sold some of our work and had great conversations with many patrons.

Trip to Mac Worthington Gallery (Columbus, Ohio)

The Mac Worthington Gallery( http://www.macworthington.com/) in Columbus, Ohio had its March Artist Reception on Saturday the 19th, Annie and I made the trip since they are currently displaying a piece of my work "Klean Break." We enjoyed the awesome art scene in the "Short North" area of Columbus.
