So, we are doing our second show at James and the Giant Cupcake in Oakland, CA. We would like to thank them for inviting us back to show there. We are excited to be showing some new work for this year. Liliana Navarro, Gina's sister, will be exhibiting her work for the first time in the US, so this will be her debut! I will be displaying my series of photos from Panama. I am very excited about this because Panama is an exciting country with so much to share with the world. I am also excited to incorporate images from there into my artistic perspective. Please stay tuned for a preview here on my blog.
In addition to this, we will be having a Meet and Greet on Saturday, August 17, from 12-2. The address is posted on the image of the flyer. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me about what to expect. Also, I am excited to announce there will be a raffle! Last year we had a raffle and drew the name at the opening. We will draw the name at the Meet and Greet on August 17. Details about the raffle with be forthcoming very shortly. The prize for the raffle will be one of our framed works of art! So, if you are interested to get some new art for your home, be sure to participate!
You could say that this show is the kick-off for an exciting second half of our year for art. We have many big plans between now and Christmas, this show just being the first of many exhibitions and events for selling our work. Our format for this show will feature no less than four of our family members and their creative directions, with artist biographies and artist statements. In addition to selling our work, we like to talk about what the meaning of our work is for us and how it reflects the world around us.
I have to add this in about this show. Eurydice and Caleigh, the owners of James and the Giant Cupcake, they really have a first rate business that is fun and friendly and they have the best cupcakes I have ever tasted. If you want to try some good cupcakes and have a fun place to have a coffee and hang out, in addition to seeing some spectacular art, be sure to go by and try their cupcakes and see our new work!!
Stay tuned, because there is a lot more blogging coming up. We have a lot of work going on and we are excited to share it with everyone. Once again, thanks for reading!!
