Hi everyone! I recently participated in a RAW showcase and thought I'd share some photos of the work I did for the show.
If you haven't heard of RAW, it's basically an organization that promotes local artists and gives them opportunities to show some of their work and sell a few things/make some connections. I was scouted and booked for the showcase less than a month before it was to take place, so I had a lot of work ahead of me... each artist gets 6ft of space, and the planning stage included lots of on-the-floor 6'x6' layouts of pieces i had done already and what i still PLANNED to do. When I was first booked, I only had the two biggest canvases in the photo below completed, so this layout progress photo was taken a few days into it. i planned to do lots of little things and bring prints of my larger works to sell.
I ended up with this layout that actually turned out to be 12'x6'. RAW contacted me two days before the show and decided to double my space because I had mostly large works, but i have a feeling it was more because someone had backed out so there was an extra spot and i had also gotten a big feature on their site so i was one of the headliners. I used this opportunity to bring two more large works and also to space out the smaller ones I had worked on. as you can see, i moved this step out to the driveway to accommodate everything!
Here's a video of me talking about my work, and there are shots of the layout that I unfortunately didn't get still photos of... click if you're interested!
I have some closeups of the things I made specifically for the showcase, so i'd like to share them with you they're all relatively small and i apologize that some of the photos are crooked and much less than professional, but i really just wanted to document my work at the time.
here we go!
the following canvases are 6"x6"
these are 4"x4"
these are 5"x7"
this one is 4"x6"
and these last few are all 9"x12"
phewww okay that's all for now! i think i need a nap after that. anyway, if you'd like to read the interview i did with raw for my featured headline on the site you can find it here
thanks for looking!!
