I'm not sure why, but most of the shows I've done this year have resulted in media opportunities for me. The shows are using my name and my face to promote themselves, while also giving me a nice publicity boost. I was on Voice of America's Korean TV station during the Smithsonian Craft Show. At the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, I participated in two video shoots during the show. One that was produced by the festival, which is meant to attract new attract new artists to apply for the show. And one that was produced by the town of State College, to promote the arts in their town. For Artscape Baltimore, I was interviewed on a local morning news show. And at this past weekend's show, I discovered that I was on a billboard! I'll try not to let this go to my head.
I was asked to tape an interview with Baltimore's local CBS news station, promoting the Artscape Baltimore festival that takes place this weekend. This is my 17th year as an Artscape exhibitor, and I have nothing but great things to say about it. Click on the photo below to watch the whole thing.
This year's festival has a completely different layout. The Artist Market will be on Charles Street. The weather is going to be brutally hot, in other words, same as most Artscapes. Pack a water bottle and come out to enjoy the heat, and the best of Baltimore's art scene.
