As we wind down EXPOSURE 2014, I find myself getting a little sentimental…
One of the coolest things about this exhibit isn’t that images are selling well, or that we were featured in the press (although, those things are really awesome, too!!!!), it’s the connections that are made and the excitement I see from the artists. I met a lot of great folks this year and last, and I’ve watched artists connect with one another, friendships and creative collaborations be born across thousands of miles, and artists use Exposure as a launching pad to greater artistic endeavors. This year, I also had the opportunity to (finally!) meet and give big ole hugs to artists from the mobile community who I’ve known through social media for years. This is why I love Exposure and why the months of sweat equity are worth it. Thank you to all of the artists, supporters, enthusiasts, and volunteers, and to Daniel at CS Gallery who lets me do my thing without interference.
