MY ART EXHIBITION (PUTING MY ART OUT THERE) BY MIABO ENYADIKE

My recent Art Exhibition was somewhat different from all the past ones.One it was solo and self sponsored.It was not in a studio or Art gallery but in a good friends restaurant.





 I needed to present my work in a rather unconventional and a very relaxed way where people felt relaxed and out to enjoy themselves.


I chose my birthday day which was in July for the event.



MIABO AND HER HUSBAND CUTTING THE BIRTHDAY CAKE.
     
 The curating of the work, was done by me because I wanted people to see it as part of the event, rather than the event itself.




 That way they don't feel intimidated, as this was not a very large space and people knew each other kind of. There was good food, good music vibe with a DJ on hand and drinks. Fantastic evening to say the least.




My work was put out there and people kind of danced their way to them discussing, commenting, commissioning and buying that was fun.Everyone had a fun Friday night, leaving in the wee hours of the morning.




 I truly enjoyed myself, promised to deliver purchased works for free, met new patrons and was just totally grateful it all turned out well.




One thing was obvious my exhibition was subtle and almost pedestrian, but people were comfortable and intimate, didn't feel out of place and paid for what they truly loved.Also for some of the guest, it was just a way of supporting my efforts........ENJOY.
