Manifest Manifest Manifest

Wow. It has felt like forever since I last posted to this blog. I've been doing the public relations work for Manifest, Columbia's annual art fest for graduating seniors and community members. That has taken up a lion's share of my time and consequently I have left my poor blog alone. Take a look at the manifest website to get the full flavor of Manifest. It is tasty, tart and delicious. Bring the whole family.

What I love most about Manifest is looking at the art work. Since I have a pretty nice art collection at home, I am always looking to find artists whose work I'd want to have in my collection. I can only spend about $500 tops. Absolutely tops. Last year I really wanted to buy a piece from Curtis Mann, but it was way out of my price range. It was better than what his work fetches now, but I just don't have that kind of cash. Actually, I bought a piece by Cody Hudson at his show at Andrew Rafacz Gallery and there lying on the window ledge was a piece by Curtis. It was beautiful. I grew wistful. I really love the Cody painting. I did pay more than $500, but this was an extremely rare occurrence for me.

Look on the Manifest website for new and interesting updates. Check out the music line up. It's going to floor you.
