The day has finally arrived! Please check out my website www.janzart.com for photos of my art display in a large bookstore near Boston :) It'll be in place for the whole of September - a great opportunity! even as I was putting the paintings up people were asking me if they were for sale. :clap:

Congratulations, Jan! They look great in the store. Are you selling them there or just displaying them?

Displaying and hoping to sell some! I'll be very happy to sell one at least, but for now I am just excited to have this opportunity to show so many in one place.

Thank you for all the good wishes - I'm still very excited! I even get a mention on the in-store flier of events for the month!

It's a great opportunity and probably one that won't get repeated, but I would not even have thought it possible if not for Wet Canvas and all the help I have had - and continue to get with my painting. I would probably have stopped after my first painting (which I did two years ago this month) if I had not found this website.

thank you all :clap:

Wishing and hoping that all good things come out of this exhibition for you. I too am so grateful to WC and long for the day that I can have a private exhibition. So :envy: is for you and also :clap:
With any luck a gallery will give you a permanent place in their shop. (If they've got any sense. :D

Please let us know how you get on. I love success stories :wink2:

LOL - that would be nice. To be honest, I just happen to live near a big bookstore that has a display area - they show work from both professional and amateur artists, but treat them all the same. I don't know of anywhere else around here that does anything like it. It's also in a very busy shopping area, on a road used by people driving out of Boston so in some ways it's better than most art galleries for a first-time display.
