Self Portrait - Jen Walls
I now have two artist interviews under my belt and started a podcast. I feel like an old pro at this!. Tuesday, July 17th at 7pm will be our third interview. I have chosen South Florida painter Jen Walls. Jen fits the IAMLAKEWORTH requirement because we were both in a show in Lake Worth at Clay, Glass, Metal, Stone Gallery last year so she fits in the works and plays in LW categories. We hit it off at the opening and have been art pals since then. I am a big fan of Jen's work. Don't be fooled by the whimsical nature of her paintings. There is usually a lot going on. Lot's of emotion on or near the surface of her paintings. You will be captivated by her paintings which have a very sophisticated color palette with just the right amount of malarkey. I would have invited Jen for an interview based purely on her artwork, but I saw her a while back at Artserve as part of a panel discussion on marketing and selling art. Jen has knocked the ball out of the park as far as art sales making her a perfect interview guest. Jen's infectious sense of humor and malarkey will appeal to all of us. Art lovers will really enjoy her work and artists will enjoy hearing about what it takes to rack up numbers of pieces sold in a year. This will be a great one on one interview. I am thrilled we found a time during the IAMLAKEWORTH exhibit to make it happen. You won't want to miss this fun event Tuesday night and Like the late night TV commercials say... Wait there's more. Common Grounds is sponsoring the whole interview series and will provide the right kind of fuel for a night time art talk, and wait there's still more we will be raffling off a $25 gift card to common grounds in Lake Worth. The interview will be Tuesday 7/17 at 7pm at HATCH1121 on 1121 Lucerne Ave in Lake Worth FL.
