A busy weekend it was, but a successful one too. We delivered two pieces to the Arts Affair at Marina Bay and went directly to the pop-up gallery in Quincy Center. It’s been great to meet people and get to know both the artists’ and Quincy City Counsel members’ take on “The Gallery”. There is a deep grab-bag of ideas floating around for future projects such as this and folks seem eager to move ahead using the city’s reconstruction to facilitate creative opportunities. After a few more hellos and exchanges of ideas we went and got some dinner as it was close to 9:00 and I hadn’t had a thing since lunch.
Upon returning around closing, Megan Marini – who’d been instrumental in organizing the show – told me that the gentleman next to her wanted one of my pieces! I said “Great!” and walked across the room with him to see which one he was interested in. It was this one —
Without disclosing a lot of customer information, let’s just say that he expressed to me that the work really spoke to him since he is an astrophysicist. I was both amazed and pleased. I felt honored to have someone in the business of outer space respond so well to my dreams of it.
Things were a little hasty as the show was being packed up, artists were getting their work off the walls, and I was making a sale all at the same time — but I think we all walked away happy.
Part of Saturday was spent at the Arts Affair at Marina Bay enjoying the vast array of styles and techniques on display. I got to meet and talk to some of the local artists and I may even try to get into next year’s show. We picked up the two pieces I’d displayed on Sunday one of which is on the right of the image above.
