A great deal of work goes into setting up your own art show . We could not have done it without the incredible support from family and friends. The undying energy of everyone that helped carry, unwrap, organize, and position paintings. (Watch for foot salts at Christmas, appropriately placed in your stockings.) Thanks for the emotional support when I was overcome with details and mental fatigue. My wife and I have always looked after ourselves and accomplished life's challenges together. This time in our lives and the magnitude of effort it took could not have been accomplished without your help. My wife, daughter and my brother need special recognition. Thank you from my heart, your effort made the event successful.
There are unseen roadblocks to consider when you set up your own show. Things you do not expect can derail your success. Check details carefully. We booked rooms at a country club thinking we could have access to their 10,000 members. Turned out they have artists members and it would not fit their policies to promote our show in their news letter. People at a club are used to private functions and feel like they are crashing the event so they tend to shy away. The rooms are for weddings and personal functions so extra cost went into lighting to properly showcase the paintings. In saying this it was well worth the effort with the facility size and ambiance adding to make the show amazing.
Look for another show? Absolutely! Negotiating with the Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre in Camrose for a one man show September 9 2023
