Not surprisingly, when I got to the area, I saw many galleries peppered throughout a three block radius, similar to Chelsea in Manhattan but better because pubs, restaurants and a few other cool businesses made up the rest of this area so if you wanted to take a day of looking at art, you had a great choice of places to go for lunch during that time.
I went into one gallery, introduced myself to the owner (with an assistant that spoke better English) and gave him my promo card. I never would have dreamed to do this in NewYork but I am new here and FROM New York so I thought by telling them that, it might make me even more appealing (in fact, their faces had an expression of awe when I did tell them of my move) so who knows.I was told if he was interested, he will call me. I emailed them the next day to say it was nice meeting them and to remind them of my website. No response since but that's expected.
I walked into other galleries and it seems their white wall setups are all the same and as usual, I saw both good and bad art.
And speaking of art in general, I have just been dabbling with painting and with mixed media image transfer paintings again....two examples here but not quite sure what these are. I am thinking they are more experiments with different acrylic mediums more than finished work.....
