It has been just about a year since I last exhibited my art. A year!
I remember, about 3 or 4 years ago, when I had 12 exhibits in 12 months. It was crazy, but it was so good. It was my debut as an artist into this city of Ithaca, the whole reason why I was attracted to this town when I moved here 4 1/2 years ago. With the aspirations of exhibiting my art here.
My first ever solo-exhibit was in July/August of 2009 at a place called Korova. Some may remember the show, some may remember the bar. Lucky for us, we still have the joy of patronizing this bar under its new alias Silky Jones.
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, in a way, this is a reunion show for me and I want you to come celebrate with me. This bar and the people who own it (one special and talented individual by the name Tim Obine) saw something in me. Without a portfolio, without any experience, he asked me to exhibit my art. This was a huge huge HUGE deal. A bigger deal than I even imagined. I had no idea what this show was going to do for me. So, Thanks Tim. Thanks for giving me exhibit to remember. An exhibit to tell all of my friends about (like you). An exhibit that launched me into feeling like a real artist.
Since that exhibit, I married the man of my dreams, founded 2 business (Hazel Wonderland + The Brides Hairstylist) and just recently became self-employed. That’s right, I am my own boss. I have a home studio where I create, get inspired and live the dream of being an artist. When my husband and I first started dating, we came up with the idea of exhibiting my art and his music together. We wanted to share our inspirations, our love, our passion with others.
So, here we are. Grow. Love. Die. is our baby. Our dream of sharing what we are passionate about with you. Come share your passion with us.
Here are the details of the exhibit:
Who: Nick + Meredith Bullock / The Bullocks. (Opening night we will have Sun Spells play!)
