The hustle is here y’all! What a rewarding and challenging year. New relationships, new business partnerships, new commissions and new shows have developed many skills this year. Finally able to take a moment and update what’s going on.
As I continue to grow my skills, acrylic and mixed media seem to be my preferred mediums. It really challenges my creativity and allows me to produce interesting artwork out of somewhat chaotic messes. I LOVE the challenge of it!!
This past year I’ve participated in Mary Nail’s Vendor event and a community Fine Art show at the Heyde in April, Vino Cappuccino’s Gallery this summer, The Yellowstone Art Trail in September, the Valley Art Association’s Fall member show and the Mabel Tainter Fine Art and Crafts Fair in November just to name a few. It has definitely prepared me to choose the shows I will apply for and/or continue during 2020 and beyond.
Artisan Forge Studios and Gallery continues to have several of my pieces (large and small) displayed for sale. Take a friend or 2 and swing in to see the wonderfully eclectic collaboration of 2D and 3D fine art, sculptures and jewelry. Legacy Chocolates and Skill Shot Coffee and Pinball are also there, you will not be disappointed.
January and February 2020, I’ll have pieces at the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport for sale. Contact me directly or Erin at the Airport for more information on purchases.
Mother Nature stomped on “the ART studio’s” 1st annual Holiday Event planned for November 30th. I decided to open the studio during class time this Sunday, December 15th for anyone who may have wanted to stop in that day and couldn’t. Please refer to Events on my Facebook Page for more information about this Sunday and future classes/events.
Thanks to all who purchased and supported me this past year, you are truly AWESOME!! That being said, all artists are unique and for me to reach consumer likes across all styles/genres would be impossible. If my work doesn’t appeal to you and you are wanting to support me (thanks, that’s super amazing!!) other than by purchasing, simply follow my Facebook and Instagram Pages and take a moment to Comment, Like/Share my work on Social Media with your friends and family. It helps me reach a larger audience with my work and find others who may want to purchase or commission me for a specific piece.
I’ve updated Google listings with the studio address and photos and I’m asking those who follow me on social media to leave a shout out on Google reviews, as well. I’ve taken time to do the same for the many businesses that I frequent. (It really does help, especially small business owners!)
Wishing you a wonderful Holiday season and Joy for the New Year.
Be-You-tiful, Be Awesome and Happy “Arting!” ~Tammy
