I participate in Gallery Vertigo’s Almost Famous every year.
It is a great deal of fun, and I appreciate challenging myself by trying to find a new way in to works that have been previously seen and enjoyed. This exhibition also allows me to go in to Art History to periods I really enjoyed, and to refresh my memory on the exploits and accomplishments of my favourite artists, as well as discover “new” ones that quickly become favourites. I try to do different artists every year. This year I think is year 4 or 5.
I also like to help out the non profit galleries when I can. If I believe they are trying to make a difference and are not exclusionary, I am happy to donate. For Gallery Vertigo, I also try to give them framed works, because they go for more, and are taken a little bit more seriously than unframed works.
Here are my three submissions for this year, and my Almost Famous artworks:
