Spring weather is here (currently enjoying 73 degree weather and bright sun) and so is the festival season!
Since I don’t have a full time job anymore, I am focusing my energy on the festivals that I will be participating in at the end of April and May. It will help me move on from the experience and just process the emotions. I probably won’t be as active in the exhibition area though since I don’t have a steady income.
This week we have the Cambridge Science Festival that starts from April 18th – 27th. The purpose of my participating is to broaden my audience as an artist – so it is more of a marketing experience. I got really good news today in regards to funding and I don’t have to fund the rental space out of pocket! This weekend I created an informational brochure about my process and a brief explanation of the science behind it.
Next Festival will be happening during the same time, but it won’t be a workshop but an exhibition. It is the Appearances: Provincetown Green Arts Festival. My artwork is going to be displayed at Larkin Hall in the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, MA. My family and I are planning on checking it out the last weekend in April.
Then in May we have the Mayfair Festival of the Arts in Allentown, PA. I am planning on attending, I just need to figure out sleeping arrangements. If I do go, it’ll definitely be weird coming back to the area just two years after I’ve graduated from Moravian! My artwork will be participating in an exhibition that is new to the Festival.
