I am excited to share the Announcement of my Acceptance in Gallery Du 808's Festival Solace Exhibition. A little backstory: As I continue to Submit Work to various Galleries, Publications, etc. I tend to meet other Artists along the way.
My Work was scheduled to be on Exhibit at Art takes Manhattan in March 2019. However, the Exhibition was abruptly Cancelled at the last minute and twenty Artists (including myself) were not only extremely disappointed, but we lost thousands of dollars in Shipping Cost alone.
On the bright side, I became acquainted with some of the Artists including Vicky Talwar. She was able to refocus much faster than I, by continuing to have her Work accepted elsewhere. I followed her progress, which included an Exhibition at Gallery Du 808 this month.
Over time, my interest in this Gallery piqued. Last week, I finally decided to Submit my own Work. To my surprise, they responded within a few days letting me know a few spots were available for the dates listed above.
I want to say "thank you" to Gallery Director, Vitali Cortesi, for Reviewing and Accepting my Work. She will assist me in selecting which pieces will be on Exhibit. The Gallery likes to have an overall theme for each Exhibit.
Hopefully, I will be able to visit places overseas as my Career progresses. Please, come out to view all the Artists represented. I hope to fit in with a new audience. Thanks, everyone.
