What's happening

Another New Years resolution for myself is to get out there.  I can be an introvert when it comes to showing my work in person and especially drawing live in person.  But I find that when I do these things anyway, despite the uncertainty and fear that comes along with exposing myself as an artist to the World, I end up having more fun in the end and wonder what I was so scared about in the first place.  It ends up giving me more esteem about my work and helps me understand on a deeper level how to clarify what I want in life.  SO I'm not allowing myself to recluse into my studio for too too long this year.  I'd like to do at least one event every month and stay active going to other artists openings and museum exhibits consistently throughout the year. So here's what's on the schedule so far:

January 23rd 2015 :

Fame By Frame

I will be drawing live at the Fame by Frame exhibit party at the Bay Meadows Welcome Center.  This should be a fun event!  An instagram photo exhibit and contest. There will be music, food, and Silvi the poet!

RSVP here.


January 24th 2015:

I have donated a lots of art and prints for the silent auction to raise funds at the 1st year Anniversary Gala fundraiser for The Humane League.

Gotta support the animals :-)

Pop-ups and Holiday Shows

DSC_0466Hello Everyone! Here's a picture from my first pop up at Rickshaw Bagworks in the San Francisco Dogpatch neighborhood this past Sunday.  I really enjoyed talking with everyone that came by, it's nice getting out of the studio and talking to people in person.  I even sold an original painting and some prints which made me feel pretty good about trying out the pop-up scene.  It is a big time investment and a lot of work lugging artwork around, I'll say that.  It helped having Tommy(my husband) to help and our dog Wasabi helped out too-just by being cute and letting everyone pet him.

Next up for me is the ETSY Indie Holiday Emporium Show in San Fransisco this November 29th-30th at Pier 35.  If you're in the San Francisco please come by and say 'hi'.  There will be over 200 vendors and lots of holiday shopping happening. I'm trying out this type of craft show to see if it's something I'd like to do more of in the future.  And to encourage people to come out in person I have been slaving away making prints on panels 4x4inch and 6x6 inch to sell at the show AND will have buy two get one free prints for sale AND new original pieces for sale. yay.  I'll be posting pictures on instagram during the event if you want to tune in form afar.

Hope everyone is having a nice time gearing up for the Holidays and enjoying the season change.  This is my first winter in California.  It's been raining for two days and that's the first sign of winter here. I've got my furry slippers and sweater on!

Feel free to email me if you have any holiday requests or questions about ordering art!  jen@jenmeyerart.com

In my experience, visiting  Nahcotta either in person or online will always leave you feeling better that you did before.
