The Big 500!


A holiday show that I participate in every year is the Big 500! yay! It is pretty much one of my all time favorite shows because it was one of my very first art shows many years ago. It has grown from 30 artists to now over 500. Every artist gets a limited number of panels and they are all the same size and they are all the same price. It's a great show that has so many different kinds of artists and artists in different stages of their careers. All of the art is hung gallery style and mixed up with no names and titles.

It  is the only art show that at opening night of show, people wait in line and you have to plan on going early. When the doors open for the show, there are collectors that run in and literally rip art off the walls. It's pretty much a zoo! And you see people carrying stacks of panels to buy. The energy is pretty incredible. It's a cash and carry show and you can pay for the work and take it home, that night.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be showing my work for the show.
