it's an exhausting, busy week and month for me and my tired eyes are unforgiving of it! but all for good reason. i'm currently creating some new pieces to put on display at the new Rise Up Gallery in Miami, FL! four more brand new pieces (see above for sneak peek) to add to the few i had on display during Art Basel, when the gallery first opened its doors to the public:
2012 ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH, DECEMBER 6-9:
With great speed and tremendous help from our amazing volunteers, Rise Up Gallery opened its doors just in time for a "soft" opening during Art Basel, one of the most prestigious and explosive art festivals in the world. It was an exciting few days with artists and art buyers in town from all over the globe. Well over 1000 visitors in 72 hours came through our doors, so were able to spread word about our organization. Thank you to everybody who helped make it a success.
now it's time for Rise Up's grand opening exhibition! i'm struggling to keep my eyes pried open every night with continuous episodes of my new favorite tv show, Psych, as i paint new pieces after a full day at work. as worn out as i am, i can't say i don't love the pressure. it can be a thrill and i'm most focused and motivated when the pressure's on. it will be worth it in the end to see my work hanging on the rise up's walls...in person! i'll be flying out to Miami for the opening and i'm stoked. i encourage anyone in the area to come out and check out all the work from rise up's artists. it's going to be a great time!
