I am definitely feeling the love. I shook hands, hugged necks, and heard very nice things from people excited about the project for four hours. It was awesome and honestly kind of a blur. Thank you Birmingham, Alabama for making me feel welcome in my own hometown!
|Art Folk Gallery is a gorgeous space and I was thrilled to exhibit this project there.|
|The front sides of the free standing walls were hung with the paintings.|
|The back sides of the free standing walls were hung with large photos from the original event and enlarged sketch book pages where I had journaled ideas for The Incognito Project. The first entry was in 2008.|
|I displayed a shelf holding various props that were used in the paintings.|
|The space was so large that I had room to show a few extra recent paintings.|
|We had a Matter Deep Publishing table so people could see what the family has been up to for the past year and to sell advance copies of The Incognito Project books, which came in just in the nick of time.|
We did the drawing for the my painting, Daydreams, Some Other Self, at the end of the evening and it was won by Fred Leggett, of Tampa, FL. Fred is a collector of limited edition art books and was a big supporter of The Incognito Project book Kickstarter. Congratulations Fred!
I want to thank my family, my patrons and friends for making this project happen. Thank you for supporting the kickstarter to fund the book, for coming to my show and for being all around awesome!
The last shipment of books will be here on Nov 26, then we'll mail out the rest in plenty of time for Christmas. If you'd like to purchase a book, $65, you may email me at email@example.com
I'll do another post when I have pictures of the space filled with happy people.
