A look inside Mixed+Media

I had a wonderful time at the opening of my group show Mixed+Media on Tuesday evening. We had a great crowd, very engaged with the artwork. I had a number of encouraging discussions about my work, and even managed to sell several of the pieces I made for the show. Pretty much everything you could want from an opening!

QR codeSome of the works of art on display had QR codes on their information labels. These codes could take a visitor with a smartphone to a web page with more information about the artwork or the artist. I had QR codes next to four of my pieces, and this is where they directed visitors:

Mixed+Media opening

The venue itself was a provisional space (aptly called “Das Provisorium”) . The walls were a little rough and unfinished, but on the plus side nobody cared how many nail holes we made in them. It’s not a venue where I’d hang my oil paintings, but for the purposes of this show it worked well.
