January 2nd I got a call from Donna, at Jim’s Barber Shop (Polk & Water, downtown P.T. across from Quimper Mercantile). I left a card & request to hang artwork there after being told that they were ready for new art on the walls (local artists display for 2-3 months at a time, and there is no commission on any sales that may develop from the exhibit).
So I have a show! This is a nice brightly lit location with a fair sized wall for art, plus space above the barber chairs and elsewhere. I have a good collection up, but still need to create a list with prices…
The exhibit includes a selection of work from the past four years, with two very new pieces. Several works have never been previously displayed (outside my studio).
Hanging the show has been a lot of fun, with appreciation & questions from customers and from Donna, the manager & one of three barber stylists working here.
