Thursday, April 27 at PACE17 started off with a riveting dialog between Eric Rhoads, and marketing expert, Jay Abraham during Art Marketing Bootcamp. Questions were also taken from several convention attendees. We were so very fortunate to have this special visit from Jay, and to hear his insights on marketing for artists. I’m sure that more than a few lives were changed that morning!
This was our final morning of presentations and demos by various faculty members. I really enjoyed Shelby Keefe‘s presentation, as well as a few other demos going on in the exhibit hall.
It was the final day for the art show as well. Here are a few more of the ones I was drawn to:
The final presentation on the main stage was given by Quang Ho. I have to say that Quang is one of the most inspiring living artists I know of, both in the work he does and also in what he thinks about and how he expresses his thoughts—simply brilliant.
In the afternoon, after the closing ceremony, we all went out to Balboa Park in San Diego to paint. It’s a peaceful setting with gardens and beautiful buildings in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. I spent some time just wandering around taking it all in. Any setting really takes on a wonderful new dimension with hundreds of painters on the scene!
The evening’s big event was the dance party, which really got going in a great way as the evening progressed. What a blast! It was so much fun letting off steam, dancing with a room full of artists!
