Artomatic is art history, art community, & art dialogue - all at once
Mark your calendars folks! You have 5 weeks to revel in all the artistic talents of Frederick County, Maryland.
You can see paintings of all kinds, all sizes, all media and all prices. You betcha, all that great art is for sale!
You can see beautiful handcrafted jewelry, journals, mobiles (I am partial to the circus mobile).
You can see live performances!
You can take art classes!
You can listen to talks by artists about branding, Art as Business, and the Exposure Myth.
You can groove to the music! (Does anyone groove anymore? I might be a tad outdated there.)
All the artists - all 350 of them - have been working hours upon hours painting walls, building sets, hanging art - JUST FOR YOU!
It's so big... how to experience it all
Artomatic occupies two entire buildings. Nearly every space in those multi-level buildings is occupied by some sort of art.
I recommend several trips!
Start off with a date night. You know, a nice dinner in downtown Frederick, a gentle stroll to the Artomatic buildings - which by the way - are located at 115 and 117 E. Church Street.
Admission is FREE! (Okay, who wants to be a cheap date?)
Then, cruise the halls and look through all the nooks and crannies. And, when your feet can't take anymore...make plans to come back another day...with your friends!
And, I will be presenting...
Yes, this year, Artmatic@Frederick has started an Artists' Resource Series. I will be presenting "Art as business" and "The Exposure Myth". Other artists will speak about branding...and all those topics important to the success of your creative art business.
I look forward to seeing you there!
