First Friday in Phoenix

So Phoenix was amazing. I got to see my artwork hung on walls that did not belong to myself or family!! The amount of people that went through the gallery was amazing. The weather was beautiful Friday night, and people made the most of it. The streets were absolutely packed. I got some great feedback, sold eight pieces, got to spend time with family and friends and really had a great time!! These are some pictures of the gallery. I didn't get any pictures during the artwalk because the place was literally packed from 5:30 until 11:30 pm. What a blast. I sold (3) of the Cosmic Gelly pieces that I wrote about in some earlier posts. People really seemed to like them. It was so awesome to see people getting right up close and really checking them out. And I got a chance to talk to people about what it was that they liked about the different pieces. I met some GREAT people, and got to hang out for a bit. Waldo, the owner of the gallery was so cool. He is an amazing artist himself with some really incredible metal pieces showing in the gallery as well. And he really made me feel welcome and was just alot of fun. The whole First Friday vibe was great. There was a D.J. two doors down, bands playing at a few of the local hangouts and a ton of really amazing artists showing their work.
Practically my entire family came out to support me, which was so awesome. A few of them had almost an hour drive to get there, not to mention trying to find a place to park, and they still came!! At one point there was 18 family members there!! Unbelievable! I felt so loved!!
