I digress from musing about art half-way ‘round the world to talk about art in my own hood. Curated a small show for my women’s group. As usual, no one sold anything (it was in an alternative space, not a gallery), but it was fun (can you tell I’m trying to convince myself fun is important?). I really don’t know what to do about all of us out of work and not selling, but that doesn’t seem to affect the quality of the work.
My own kid.02 had a small show of his masks outside on the sidewalk. He sold, $5 per mask. The lessons he learned were worth much more—that hard work can pay off, that others value what he creates, that he can overcome shyness. Plus people got some really cool Halloween masks.
