A few days ago, I was interviewed at the Central Kentucky Home & Garden Show, as one of the artists participating in the "Architectural Artists" booth, put together by the Kentucky Arts Council. (Our Arts Council does a magnificent job advocating for us!) Of the 30+ artists in the Architectural Artist Directory, about 12 had brought work to display the Home & Garden Show. Matthew (Matt) and I had brought a banner showing pictures of our railings, Gallery cards for people to take home, an album of our work, a small sample railing section and two of tables... both of which help display the other items.
I had originally agreed to do the interview, thinking I'd just throw Matt in front of the camera (he's better at things like this). I knew the interview was to be a short section of a 30 minute show that a local TV channel was putting together... but my clever plan was derailed when Matt couldn't break free of the shop. Oh no! Maybe I could do this, right? I knew what to say. The Architectural Artists had one large booth in an excellent location, in the Atrium of the Lexington Convention Center. I know all the artists. KAC has a fantastic website. Beautiful brochure you could pick up if you came down to the show... what else is there to say?
