I’m in the middle of doing some last minute pieces for an art festival I’m a part of from October 20 – December 12, 2015. It’s called Artomatic and it’s one of the biggest art festivals around the metro area. Anyone can show and it’s on a first come first served basis.
I managed to snag a space in an old office building near the New Carrollton Metro Station. It’s in Hyattsville Md, and all are welcome!! It’s a free event and there are a lot of festivities happening throughout the the 6 week event. I’m still working out on when I’ll actually be there. Artists volunteer 15 hours to talk to on lookers about art, give tours, run the store, and pretty much do anything else a volunteer is asked to do.
I’m still trying to decide what to show because even though it’s an amazing chance to show my work, the space is limited. I picked a good size wall, but of course I would LOVE to have more space. It’s ok, though. It’s my first experience with this kind of event, and I’m just glad to be a part of it.
All my pieces will be for sale! So come on out!
