Hey Sharon, I just found this thread -- how exciting, this is awesome!! Today is the 8th, so I'm looking forward to hear how it went! Sounds like a dream coming true (just beginning tho), many more blessing to come I know  :smitten:. So very happy for you  :yippee:

Hi everyone! Just got home from the Preview Party for my art show and I had to share with you what happened tonight. At 5:30PM I walked into gallery and saw this sign on the wall and I won't lie - I actually had tears in my eyes! There were approx 70 attendees throughout the evening...the gallery poured wine, a local restaurant donated bbq sandwiches and desserts... and I sold 7 pieces! The Sacramento Business Journal sent their photographer to take pictures of the event and as soon as the photos are on their next online edition I'll share that link here.

The show will be up throughout October and the nonprofit will continue to encourage their supporters to go to the Gallery to buy a painting since it supports their organization. And I'll continue to promote through FB and email blasts - as will the gallery.  I have to say... I'm on Cloud 9 right now! 

Many thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments and best wishes - again, I couldn't have done this without you!
Cheers,
Sharon

Yeah, Sharon.  What a success.  Sounds like a WIN-WIN for everyone who was involved, including the 7 buyers!!

I am so very happy for you.

Thanks everyone!! And you're always right, Val!! I have 30 pieces in the show. I sold the last of the 20 limited edition prints of the Oak Park Sign. It actually sold for more than the original I painted in March! 

Hoping to sell a few more before ithe show ends oct 31 - and yes, my confidence soared after last night. Plus I get to donate to the nonprofit. It's all so good!
Cheers,
Sharon
