Stay tuned!
So much more to come.
Yes, this is a change but I could not be more excited.
I believe so truly and passionately in our local art community and I have so much planned. This silly Instagram is a great place to be to stay up to date on what's happening next.
This year has been AMAZING, extremely difficult and equally inspiring. I have learned more that I could have dreamed was possible.
I think this change is the best possible scenario for my energies and for the vision and strengths of River Garden Marketplace. Check out the lynk 1n b1o if you're interested in displaying your art in this gorgeous space after August.
AND if you haven't had a chance to come in and check us out yet stop on by this month. We have some truly talented artists with us through August.

Ye olde imposter complex got you feeling like mister braggy braggerson every time you post?
I mean we spend literal hours if not days, weeks or even months (years?!) making art then when we put it out for display and it feels like, "ooo sorry to bother ya with this gorgeous thing I made to make the world a little brighter"
I believe wanting to share your art is a natural part of the artistic practice. When I'm making I think of how it will make those I love feel, who would appreciate it, who I can make laugh, who inspires me, can I bring my community togeather?
We are social beings and I think after the past few years we've had we know just how important human connection is.
Share your art. 
We want to see it.
The world neeeeeds it.

I get the same hand full of questions ALL the time from HBM artists. I hear them talk about them among themselves online and in person nearly every say
Mostly they boil down to
❓ How do I decide how to price my art
❓ How do I know if my art will sell so I know how much to spend making and promoting it
❓ How do I display my art
❓ How do I let more people know about my art
AND THE BIGGY
❓ Why does imposter complex make each and every aspect of art making and selling your art so damn hard
I battle with these questions too. 
I wish I had a magic pill for each one. 
The one thing I can say is CONNECT with your art community!!
Those who make things similar to what you make AND those making art locally. 
There may not be easy answers to these questions. The answers may shift all the time but your fellow artists are the wacky clown car 🤡 that will steer you through.

This feels so vulnerable.
If you are disabled/chronically ill I know you know. I also know from working with so many artists over the past few years that the percentage of chronically ill and disabled artists is so very high. 
I'm still masking at Hand Built Market and in public spaces and I'm often the only person in the building with a mask on. Knowing what it's like to feel sick every day for a decade, to be isolated from family and friends makes me want to protect people from this pandemic that is causing such a high percentage of people to get sick and stay sick. Trust me, you do not want this. I care too much about y'all to want this for you. 
That's why I mask. For each and every one of you. Like it or not. 
Love y'all 💓
