SOLO ART SHOW
670 N Midvale Blvd, Madison WI
November 12-December 31
29 paintings went up last week for my latest solo exhibition at the hilldale pasquels (madison wi). and they’ll be up thru the end of december! i hope some of you get to stop by and see them all!
this exhibition marks the start to a celebration! one year ago today, i had my first art opening with these new whimsical paintings (an event that totally boosted my confidence ten-fold and made me bold enough to start selling my paintings and prints in my etsy shop)!!!
the walls at pasquels are just full of color, which made the perfect compliment to my paintings. it really makes me happy to see all of that brilliant color!
and it’s even more meaningful because one of the things that got me out of hanging my paintings when i was in college was a simple comment that a curator made about the wall color. as you know, i love color! so of course, it makes sense that i would choose to hang a painting on a wall with a complimentary color. that matters to me. and i feel that really putting in some kind of intention and thought into where and how your artwork hangs, really makes that energy come across when people view your work!
but, in college i didn’t have my roots yet. so when the art curator said with his nose so high in the air that i “should never hang a painting to match the wall color,” i thought i’d had enough of that art world. and really, that was the last straw that made me leave that world and painting for more than ten years!
can you believe it?
until finally last year i picked up painting again!
and i’m super happy to say that one year ago i had my first art opening with this new work!!! and wow! how so much can happen in just one year!
i’m busy putting the finishing touches on my How To Paint an Owl workshop and will share more details here with you soon! There’s space for six people, so if you’re in Madison and think you’re interested in attending the workshop on Saturday, December 18th, send me an email at juliette (at) juliettecrane (dot) com to reserve your space!
I am so blown away by all of your kindness and incredible support with this new show and my upcoming workshop! THANK YOU so much! I am so grateful, grateful, grateful, for it all!!!
