accomplishments in 2007

Well, here it is, the end of the year. Someone said its a good idea to list things you did in the year so you can have it infront of you and build on it for 2008. So, I will list accomplishments first and then goals for 2008.

2007 accomplishments

  • Showed 4 acrylics in an “immigrant Experience” show at Stonehill College in Easton, MA. Group show. Reception included question and answer session by the artists. Group show.
  • Showed 3 collages at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston. Group show called “Art Spotting”. The good news is, It was mentioned in the Boston Globe by Cate McQuaid. The bad news is that she liked the show’s concept better than the artwork. She said the work varied from great to mediocre. So, for the past month I have been stressing out about if her view of mediocrity included my work.
  • Had 2 one person shows at Starbucks in Lexington, MA, sold nothing. Does that count as an accomplishment?
  • Sold one collage to a former buyer. Hooray for Opera House!
  • Group show during the Inagural Reception for Deval Patrick at Merrimack College
  • Taught two collage workshops, one to the Chelmsford Art Society and one to the Nashua, NH Art Association

Goals for 2008:

  • I’d love to be included in the outdoor show at the DeCordova Museum in the Spring
    *I’ll probably do the Portland, ME outdoor show for WCSH in the Summer
    *I’d like to have more shows at colleges and universities
    *I’d like to sell more work!
    *I need a bigger studio. (preferably with heat this time.)
