St. Cloud Art Crawl

As some of you may know, I’ve been working on building a portfolio worthy of approaching a gallery with for some time now. The target date to begin marketing myself as an artist has been tentatively set for fall of 2012, but when a friend asked me to be the featured artist at Seven Elephants Coffee in St. Cloud for the upcoming Art Crawl (Friday, June 15), of course I jumped at the opportunity.

I’m considering it a preview of sorts, since my collection to this point is incomplete. My ultimate goal is to have a tightly cohesive body of work to showcase; but for now I’ll be showing a slew of very different styles of work, from realistic pencil drawings, to surreal paintings, to the ethereal. It might be a bit disjointed, but isn’t everything in life a bit of that? And shouldn’t art reflect the truth? (did my tongue in my cheek translate through the text??)

Here are a few fun little items that I’ve been working on:

Oodles of mini Giclee prints on canvas, packaged in black organza bags

A little business card box, painted black, varnished, and decorated with a paper flower

“Please Take One”

Cute Little Box

Hand-made Business Cards

    How exciting! Very happy for you! And June 15 is just around the corner. I just recently read the statistics that artist approaches approximately 12 galleries till his work will be finally accepted. It so wonderful when Universe pushes us forward. Best wishes, Yelena

    Thank you, Yelena! Yes, I’m very excited! That’s an interesting statistic about having to approach 12 galleries before being accepted– such a tough business. Anyway, I suppose it’s beneficial for the aspiring artist to remember that it takes time and perseverance in the face of rejection to get work into a gallery and to just keep pressing on. Hope you’re having a wonderful day! Cheers!
