LH Horton Gallery's Regional Artist Group Show 2011
I love getting to put my work in front of the community that I live in, but quite frankly, most of the people I interact with daily don't even know what I do outside of the context of how I'm seen everyday. When I say I operate on-line under the name "FetishGhost", they get that look in their eyes like they think I must be some obscure porn star, and honestly, that suits me quite fine. I am good by the way, just not that good.
Most of the time, I'm either the gardener, or Nico's and Andor's dad, or the Violin Guy, but locally, I'm most definitely not known for my studio work.
None the less, I do enjoy getting to show.
There are easily many, many more talented artists than myself that I would like to see drawn out for a local exhibition. Apparently, I'm not the only one who's hesitant to show locally. There's a very healthy number of nationally recognized artists living and working in our community that are choosing to remain silent on the local stage.
That's not good and really needs to be addressed.
