Have you ever visited a “Friend” you only met on Facebook?
Are you really my friend?“ I once saw an exhibition in MassMoCa (the largest modern art museum in US – absolutely worth a visit) which had this title. A photographer traveled through the world to meet many of her Facebook friends! It was such an impressive exhibition and idea.
Last week I met my Facebook friend Anne Bedrick Fine Art in Palm Springs whom I “know” since some time, we had several little chats going forth and back. Anne is a super organized person and has built up her art career in the last years with success. She was definitely one of the reasons I am in Palm Springs now. Planing our trip to California I remembered that she had moved here and I startet to collect information about the place and it sounded quite tempting! So we are here!
A very special event: Visiting a Facebook Artist Friend!
It was a great meeting, wonderful to chat with this fellow artist and to see her beautiful paintings in real that were already so familiar to me !!! We both are colorists, we love colors and cannot do without it. Anne shares her studio with her little dog, while my studio company is Miez, the cat. Anne is one of the best organized artists I know. She showed me her organization system to follow up her paintings, great! I wish I was disciplined enough to adopt this system. She even makes a little exact plan for her exhibition walls in the next art fair!
I LOVE TO GET TO KNOW NEW ARTIST FRIENDS!
Did you ever visit a Facebook friend? How is your experience? And do you have a studio company pet?
