Another Opening Of Another Show

Soulard Art Market Opening 2013-09-13 1

We have an awfully nice artists' cooperative and gallery called Soulard Art Market. They have monthly shows in which I occasionally participate. Nobody ever buys my stuff. It's either too weird or too expensive. I've got, um, certain standards, print with high quality ink and paper and use acid-free mats and UV resistant acrylic. You get what you pay for, except nobody wants to pay that much.

There are three of my pieces in the show (this, this and this) that opened Friday night. The theme was From The Pavement, anything to do with the streets. The man in the top picture is studying my work (buy it, dammit, buy it!). Madeleine went to her first art show. We'll have more about her reaction to the exhibits in tomorrow's Madeleine Monday after some colorful subjects.

I had a similar experience this summer when no one bought any of my photos during an exhibition, and my standards were a bit lower that yours!

King Missile seems an interesting band. High standards are a good mark to strive for.

It is an odd experience to have one's work on display and to see -- and hear -- the reaction of others.

A time like that is when you want to be slightly telepathic and get that thought into their head!

Jack said...

You do good work. Someone will see that.

Love the shot of Madeleine and her mom!

You do good work, Bob. Like all good work, it will find its audience.

I really like the St. Louis exit photo. Surely this will sell.

Ditto what Jack said Bob..anyway, you don't want your work to go to just anybody right! It has to be someone with taste and style :) Loooooved the 'sensitive artist' link, too funny!
