Ziya and I were guests of Connie Green at her H25 "Happening location 25" for the EAST tour this year. The East tour used to be a weekend and now lasts for 9 days-a bit of a marathon for most artists. We set up for 2 evenings only in Connie and Joe's backyard beer garden lit by the moon tower and it was beautiful. Thank you to all our friends and family that came out to help set up and support us ! Our next show we have signed up for is :
>MARANDA PLEASANT GALLERY: 12X12 HOLIDAY ART BOX SHOW Pick up your 12x12x2 panel to create your contribution to this posh and popular show, which features more than 450 pieces of original artwork for $100 each. See website for details. Deadline: Dec. 3. Exhibition: Sat., Dec. 5, 6-10pm. 2235 E. Sixth, 713/922-8584.bigmodernart.com.
This is a fantastic show for collectors to buy art for 100$ a panal regardless of the artist ! This is also a great way to meet artists. Doors open at 6pm and people are given red dots to buy art and check out with your 12x12 under your arm !
Ziya, Connie, Donna and I are all jumping in with other 700 artists and it should be a blast. We are also revving up for our Dec. 11th holiday show at my house . This is allot of creative activity to close out 2009. I am ready for this year to come to a quiet close !

Connie Green has invited Ziya Neema and I to be her guest at her "Happening" during the East Austin Studio Tour this weekend and next. We will set up our canopy in front of their Joe's Food Restaurant location and pull folks off of MLK into the artworld and into Connie's space inside. Joe will do the cooking ! This will be Ziya's first taste of the art scene in Austin and lots of fun. Things are hoping at Lightcrafters and the Armadillo is 4 weeks out. Enough Blogging for now-gotta go pack art work !
