Last night's Art Hop was an all around wonderful experience!
Though I have been told repeatedly that it was not a very large one I had quite regular traffic through my gallery. Most everyone was very complimentary, the only criticisms I received were from other artists in the building who thought (quite rightly) that my prices are too low.
I made two sales, and earned enough to cover this month's rent plus a bit more. Several people expressed interest in custom work, many were intrigued by next months show. I was invited to enter a juried exhibition as well as to have a show at a local gallery. Additionally, I was asked to give a talk to the Modern Painter Society.
Also my interview on NPR aired and went quite well. You can hear it at http://wmuk.org/term/justin-david-gustafson.
I'd also like to thank Zach McCallum and Dennis Dahl for building the exquisitely crafted frames which house my three largest works in this show. As well as John Thingstad for the use of the space in his remarkable building. I am also grateful to everyone else who offered me support in my endeavors, my appreciation knows no bounds !
