Monster on the Prowl
Friday was the opening of the Monsters Under The Bed show...whew! It was great! the place was packed all night and a lot of my friends, neighbors, current as well as former DCAD students came. A big group of my fellow students came from PAFA and a huge batch of my Philly Crew showed up as well as my brother Marc.
My work was broken up and in 3 places in the gallery, which was great because it got people to walk around and mingle.
The crowd was really quite diverse in just about any way you could imagine.
Lots of wine, cheese and yakking about art till about 8 or so, then they kicked everyone outside for a bit, then let us all back in as the rock show started. It was so packed in the gallery the crowd spilled out onto 10th street. We hung for a bit then took off to eat some get so great greek food at Effies, just off Pine St. It's run by my pal Stephen's cousin. I felt like a million bucks.
It was a really great show, I had lots of fantastic feedback about my work, especially the paintings which was gratifying--I felt all the hard work was really worth it. I got to talk to some of the fellow artists about their work and passed on a few marketing tips. It was great and draining, when i got home i was just zonked, but we had to be back up again the next AM at 6 to head off to baltimore for the con.
Big thanks to Ed the gallery owner and to Ryan the manager for really pulling off such an awesome event at AXD. the show is up until October, so you'll have plenty of time to see it.
