It was an amazing show full of amazing works by amazing artists! Basically amazing all round! I'll admit straight up that I sold 0 of my 4 works. But that's okay. I heard many positive comments about my work, though nobody was willing to take one home. Which is ok too. I'm not entirely sure my work suited the market Canterbury attracted anyway. It became clear that my work was way too edgy and youthful to appeal to a majority of the crowd that attended. The majority of the work that did sell was of a happy whimsical nature. My work was probably too confronting for some, and probably reminded many of the 50+ crowd of their children! LOL But once again, that's okay.
I'd also like to congratulate my extremely talented friend Michelle Giacobello on selling 2 pieces! I rang her on opening night, very excited that she'd sold one (a big one!) very early on in the evening! Congrats! Her work looked amazing up close, and attracted many admirers.
So next year for Canterbury I shall tailor my art for the market the show attracts. Which doesn't mean I'm selling out at all. Just changing theme and tone a tad to appeal to a majority of the buyers, who were all over 50. And yes, I guess if I were over 50 I wouldn't want a punk chick staring at me while I read the paper:) LOL
