We did it! What fun! A group of 5 moms from our school joined together last year with the intent of having an art show. After all the planning, it finally happened and was quite successful! We called ourselves Melange: An Artist Collective.
One thing I loved about the show was that even though our styles are all very different, the art all looked great together. There were portraits, flowers and still life, animals, and abstract works. There was a good variety of mediums, too: encaustic, watercolour, acrylic, and oil.
I had a table for my new paintings, and we also had a table for greeting cards. All in all, it was a very successful night for me: I sold 9 paintings (7 of them were new ones!), and several packs of cards. I would love to do this again – I really had fun working with this lovely group of artists.
Here are the paintings I sold:
