Works in Constellationism

Cha Champagne & Wine Bar 8/14/2012

Added on by Matthew Gantt.

Despite the tiny road-bumps like group show falling-through, issues with moulding, timing and all, my show at Cha was a success.  The turnout was great and the feedback was strong and positive!  Although I always start off quite nervous, I quickly found my bearings and was able to confidently talk about my work with people and enjoyed answering any questions they had.  Because my work comes straight out of my subconscious, I find my subject matter interesting, so I guess it's easy for me to be excited and/or curious about work.  I think that comes through when I talk about it, so it must radiate to some degree.  It was a lovely night indeed.

Many thanks to everyone who made it out to the show! It was great having you all there. For all those that wanted to be there but couldn't, I completely understand, so please don't feel bad about it, I felt your support in the warmth of my heart. 

Super thanks to my collectors, old and new, for falling in love with something I created. I know my babies are in good hands with you.  I sold four pieces!  Thank you Troy and Renee, for your wonderful comments, as well as Syd, I had a lovely time chatting with you about the work, you made me feel like a peer.

Special thanks to: Bree Hess and David for letting me show at Cha, to Tina Lucas, who introduced me to Bree, to Mike & Heather Welsch from Art & Frame Etc., who helped me frame the work beautifully and masterfully, 90% of the people I talked to mentioned how great the frames looked, thanks to all the staff from Cha who took care of everyone's bubbly needs throughout the evening.

Eternal thanks to my wonderful wife, Justine, for your support and pep talks (especially when I'm overly critical of myself), without you I could not be realizing my dreams. Thanks for taking care of Brixton while I was working at the show.  Cheese sandwich, baby!

Again, you all have my love and gratitude.
