The 2009 Art Speaks at the Lowes Hotel on Miami Beach was a fun private event. The idea was pure genius and I hope catches on.
Event planners basically held a conference for a large nationwide company and the Artists were the entertainment afterwards! There were about 400 + people. How cool!
A mixture of Sculptures in many different mediums, Painters, and Jewelry Artists captivated their audience.
Some of these artists were established and had many clientele. What was interesting was the neat mix of the less established artists from the art college and ETSY! We had OUR chance to show our talent, too!
We didn't just display our Art we did demonstrations! THAT was the entertainment appeal for the conference attendees.
Scenes sprang to life with people, plants and animals! Smiles on paintings and people graced the landscapes of the conference room.
Fingers inquisitively poked wet sculptures and the slopes of smooth and rough and pondered taking them home.
Jewelers with precious and semi precious gems and metals pounded, strung, soldered and made little twists here and there with a flick of the wrist and a pair of pliers or wire.
Eyes sparkled with surprise as creations emerged before them.
"How do you do it?" They asked. "I'll show you." We said.
I got to promote ETSY. Some of the artists didn't know that ETSY is so much easier than Ebay to advertise with and is cheaper so the Artist makes a better profit. I passed out many business cards with my ETSY shop http://www.bajunajewelry.etsy.com/
