“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C.
I’ve fallen a bit behind on my blog. Work has picked up quite a bit and its festival season. If you are ever looking for updates or want to know when events are, you can always check my Instagram and Facebook (@tangledrecords) pages. I keep those update to date as I find things out.
Here is what I have been up to and upcoming events:
I had a burst of custom record requests the past 2 months. Here is what is new:
Glen Park Art Festival
I just participated in my first big outdoor art festival! It was great experience and learned a lot about festival life. It was a lot of work to set up and tent and display, plus interact with buyers for 2 full days. I had a lot of friends and supporters who come out to meet me and buy art. I received a great deal of compliments and words of encouragement. It was a great experience and was asked to apply again next year by the event coordinator.
Beer Garden Party
I’ll be selling records and doing live art at Flight Gallery on Aug 24th. I know it’s been a while, but I’ll be drawing a flower themed design on a mannequin body.
Music is Art
Last year, I had 4 of my mannequins as part of an art installation on one of the main stages. Plus I did live art. This year, I’ll just being selling records as a vendor. This is one of my favorite events and I really hope many of you come out to experience it.
Fall Spirit Expo- Dragonfly Studio and Salon
During my stay at Glen Park, the owner of this studio invited me to her event on September 21st. This will be very different compare to other event’s I have done but I’m excited to share my Muse, Spiritual, and quote records with them.
Buffalo Makers Farie
This will be another family fun event. They hope to make this the biggest Makers Faire in Buffalo. This will be held on September 28th.
There will be more announcements later. I’m just finalizing and waiting on application approvals.
Thrive Fest Buffalo
Oh Yes, I’m even booking into 2020 already!
I was able to go another adventure thanks to my records. I did a spontaneous trip to Phoenix, Arizona during the 4th of July weekend. I wasn’t planning on going there, but I decided that I didn’t want to spend the 4 day weekend home so I booked the cheapest last minute trip I could find. I’ve never been to the desert and thought it would be a great opportunity to do some soul searching. I purposely didn’t bring any artwork with me. This was ME time. It was just me, the desert, lizards, Rock Mountains, and the 110 degree heat. I have a lot of goals and hopes on where I’d like to go with my art. I’m getting closer to figuring out what I have to do. I need growth; my art needs growth, so together we will figure it out.
July Book List
I get asked a lot about what inspires me and what resources I use to lift my spirit. I’ve recently have begun reading again. Books are so useful for your art and yourself. So staring this month, I will share with you a list of books I have read if hopes they will inspire you.
There will be more vendor announcements soon. I'm also open to accepting custom requests at this time as well. You can contact me directly or fill out the comment section on the contact page. Thank you for stopping by and the love. XOXOXOX
