Out here in the Great Wide Open, opportunities to show artwork are few and far between.
It’s up to us to create our own spaces.
This past weekend was the perfect opportunity to hold a Pop-up gallery; a short-term one-time shot-in-the-dark event designed to call attention to the work I’ve been piling up over the last long while.
The Geneva Rural Living Expo! had a space just right for my needs; across from a furnace guy, next to a garden business and just down the way from a window guy, a lady selling homemade noodles and the Boy Scouts of America booth.
It wasn’t fancy. Instead of cheap wine and stale crackers patrons wandered by with Walking Tacos or egg salad sandwiches from the food stand. Nonetheless we had some terrific conversations about art and I came home with less than I started out with.
Many thanks to John and Sue, Sharon and Cecil, Brandy, and so many others for stopping by
P Scarborough’s Rural Living Pop-Up Gallery and gabbing with me. Your questions and observations were stimulating.
Hanging out there reminded why I love living here. And who knows? There may be a pop-up coming just in time for sidewalk sales.
I've been sharing the odds and ends of my art life for the last 8 years.
