"The Disagreement" solo exhibit

I just had the second reception for my solo exhibit, "The Disagreement," last weekend.  It was packed with people.  I had no idea that the Santa Ana artwalk was so popular but it is.  I sold quite a few small items priced under a $100, which means I didn't lose any money on the show which is always a risk.  Galleries cover quite a bit of the costs of putting on a show, but by no means all of them.
People takes pictures with things far more now than I recall being popular in the past.  It's funny to see people use sculptures as backdrops for photographs, as though they had the same personal historic value as a landmark.  
I made three new monoprints for this show, to be blogged about shortly. 

A young artist asked for my autograph, and then another did the same a few minutes later.  It's strange because I'm by no means famous, but I suppose that a solo show looks pretty successful if it's something you've never done yourself.

The staff at GCAC were fantastic, helpful, and really kind.  There were three exhibits going on in the complex simultaneously, including mine, and they kept the crowd in check pretty effectively.  

"The Disagreement" is show at GCAC, Closed Mondays
Tuesdays - Sundays 11:00 am - 4:00 pm.
Extended hours: Friday & Saturday 11:00am – 7:00 pm.
(First Saturday of the month galleries are open until 10:00 pm

The show ends on June 24th.

Had my first solo exhibition last year ( and wish it got this sort of attention. Very envious of you and your work. Keep at it.
