On a whim I entered a contest I saw advertised on Facebook. I picked a tiny drawing I liked and submitted it. You can still go vote for it here http://bit.ly/oYozZj voting continues through 11-13-11 so you can keep going back every day and voting if you like. This lead to an actual show at the Houston Museum of African American Culture. I submitted two pieces. Bombay Sapphire Vodka Artisan Series is sponsoring the show and the afterparty in conjuction with the grand opening Gala of HMAAC. It's a juried show and two artists will be selected to participate at Miami Basel this December.
These are the two pieces I submitted
They are from the Tiny Drawings series and the only way to appreciate exactly how small they are it to see them in person.
I think I'm going to go to the after party. The question now is; what does one wear to her first show, down-town, in the Museum District, in the fourth largest city in the nation, where people are likely to be wearing sparkly evening gowns, and the party is thrown by a vodka company, and the prize is an entrance into the biggest art show in the country, and she is wearing a leg brace hip to ankle? I mean really? What the hell do I wear? Do I get all Lady Gaga with it or just opt for a quiet little black dress cut very short? One thing is for sure, high heels are out.
