Art-A-Whirl

In the first few months since we arrived in Minneapolis I have already finished two new paintings, run a print for the new print exchange, and stumbled upon a new drawing series.   I’ve joined the local arts association – NEMAA.  aaw_logo_2_rI have even started a new job in a new line of work with Amazon.  Working for Amazon has been good, but has also presented a few challenges.  Like training in Chicago for four months and only being home for three days every few weeks.  This alone makes it hard to finish projects – mainly because when I’m home I’m spending my time with Sarah.

Normally I don’t like to toot my own horn (or really draw any attention to myself at all), but I have also managed to land a spot in the biggest Art event in Minneapolis – the Art-A-Whirl.  While I don’t have a studio in one of the many cool art buildings, nor am I willing to have random people tramp through my house, I have managed to get aFDBLDG few of my pieces into a really cool spot in the Northeast Arts District- The Food Building.  I will be showing my work and hanging out at the Food Building all three days of the Art-A-Whirl Friday May 20th through Sunday May 22nd.  Stop by Art-A-Whirl if you are in the neighborhood, pick up an original piece or two, and maybe I’ll see you there.

I plan on drawing up a few relief prints to sell in addition to my paintings, however I don’t have any concrete ideas set just yet.  Check out the top painting contenders below.  Also click on the images to check out the Art-A-Whirl and Food Building Websites.
