In our continuing effort to grow our Texas fan base we jumped in and did the Festival Of The Arts in Corpus Christi. It was sort of a leap of faith for us since it seemed like an art scene that wasn’t having us. I have been chatting up a gallery in Port A for years with no results. We couldn’t find a sponsor when we wanted to do the "turtle trail" thing and we didn’t get picked to do the art on the ferry. I have been trying to get something going with a few art spaces and studios, but nothing. I had a feeling it just might not be a place for us to be. But Hannah loves going there and since this was a lower priced show we felt it was a no brainier to go and see what happens.
It started up with an over 20 mile an hour wind blowing all the tents and blowing all of us all over the place. We had a quick set up and hung out in our van till the artist reception. We ran into a few artists that have been out and about at most of the shows we do, building that art family. Its always nice to know people when you show up to a place like this. It was so humid and the wind never really stopped by it seemed like people were loving on the art.
We sold an original right away and sold a ton of necklaces and prints. It wasn’t one of our best shows but for the price and the great parking spot it was well worth it. So watch out Corpus I’m coming for you. I got a few leads about showing some more work and I’m not going to give up. I'll pull all the strings I got to get more in the city.
