The Path from Here was my first solo show and it was fantastic! I had 11 pieces displayed at Taproom 642 at Rogers Ave in Brooklyn. The owner of this unique brewery reached out to me on Instagram and said she has the audience for my work. Excited was an understatement, I was beyond that, mostly because it is so hard as an artist to get your work shown and partly because I wasn’t really looking for this opportunity yet.
Taproom 642 has a rustic chic feel with long, exposed brick walls, a handmade (by the owner) wooden bar and a fabulously dark, wood-grain tile on the floor. My work filled the entire length of the wall from front door to back sofa! The color popped in the dimmed lighting.
The opening reception was crowded and my work was so we’ll received. For me, I make work that I love and that I think speaks to the message I am trying to convey. Having others get it and like it is what I hope for, but being with an audience who gives you all kinds of positive feedback is fantastic! I couldn’t be more grateful to have had this opportunity!!!
