Art Market

Soulard Art Market, where I've exhibited a couple of times, had a reception last night for social media types interested in the arts. Never thought of it this way, but I guess I am social media. SAM has some new resident artists and I met a couple. This is
T. Matthew Pierson, cartoonist, illustrator and fine art painter with attitude. It's worth your time to review his stuff.

Some good shooting in STL this weekend. Citygarden celebrates its first anniversary today with a Flamingo Festival. The place is strewn with toy pink flamingos that kids can pick up and have their way with. Tomorrow brings the World's Largest Catsup Bottle Festival under the world's largest catsup (or do you prefer ketchup? Questions like this only arise in English) bottle in nearby Collinsville, Illinois. Time magazine named this as one of the top 10 quirky local festivals in the U.S. Quirky is too mild a word.

Coll attitude yes, I love his tee-shirt but wouldn't be a huge fan of his art.

Make that cool, huh?!

Stefan Jansson said...

Ha, an artist he is. Found some very cool stuff on his web site!

Sounds like some fun events... bring the camera.

I have always loved your artist portraits. Mine are never as good as these. Keep it up!

Catsup/ketchup. Hope they have a boatload for frites to go with it.

Nice portrait. I like his stuff. I really don't know about the Catsup festival.

Good portrait. I like how the chaotic paint is opposed to his composure.
