Over 350 people attended our opening of Dollhouse. This was our first juried show, and my first time administering it through Entrythingy. This automated workflow system saved a lot of time for the applicant, administrator and juror. People had to apply online, upload images online and pay online. Surprisingly we had very few confused artists - 99% managed to get through the entire submission process without a hitch. The work for us began after the artists were notified. We had a tight schedule in accepting delivery, creating a catalog, and setting up the work. Stephen did a fabulous job determining the flow of the artwork in the gallery.

This was my first open studio at Arc Studios & Gallery. I was relieved that I had even more visitors than my previous location.
Though I made few sales, I had many good conversations and the visitors took all of my Moo cards and most of the postcards.
Next time: mail postcards! Most of my collectors don't do Facebook or Twitter so the old-fashioned communication method works best for me. I got too busy to do any mailings this year.
Still, I was satisfied with the many new works I painted this year. I am planning to do more narrative pieces, which are gliimpsed behind the floating lanterns.
