Leedy-Voulkos in KC
The opening was fantastic. After putting up the show Thursday and Friday, I changed clothes and put on my chatty face and enjoyed the onslaught of the First Fridays crowd in the Crossroads of Kansas City. Literally hundreds of folks flooded the streets on an absolutely beautiful evening. Felt like it was a "this is your life" moment; past colleagues and friends I hadn't seen in years showed up, many just on their usual artwalk path and just happened upon my show. Sold a couple pieces. Lots of great discussions about the work, since I asked people what they thought about the work and introduced myself. Will be going back first friday of October; my MSSU art department students have planned to go to the galleries that night. I want to get some crowd shots then. This is it, this is the artist's life!
