Art Business

I can't believe I have not updated the blog since the big Studio Tour! Thanks to all of you who showed up in support of the event. I think this is one of the best local arts events. It is fun to tour the city, get a peek into people's homes and studio space. I am always amazed at how creative artists are to carve out some dedicated studio space in amongst their daily lives. I have a whole building I can stockpile supplies. And I just close the door when the mess gets to be too much and not invite anyone in. I guess that is the undisciplined part of my brain. I can walk away from the mess and deal with it another day. Some people are not as fortunate as I am in that regard.

For all of you who didn't make it out, here is a link to the Spotted pictures. I encourage you to click through them all...but here is a link for my pic...
and a link for a pic of my mom when she was able to escape to other venues...

6 - 9 pm

This is the gallery I displayed at for the Studio Tour. Pauline invited me to stay for the month of December. I changed things up so it looks like a totally different display. There should be food, wine, and live music! I know we are going to pack the house out with totally awesome art so stop by to see something new!

DownTown Art Market
December 8, 2012
Tornado Gallery
1840  Buddy Holley Ave.
Lubbock, Texas
9 am - 3 pm

I have not done DAM this whole year! I can't believe I have missed out. So I thought I would end the year with a comfortable old friend. This is an indoor/outdoor event and I reserve the right to chicken out if it is too cold or too windy. Wind being the bigger possibility this season.

I will be displaying in the Llano Estacado Clay Guild annual membership Show. It will be at the Lousie Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) December 5 - 31. I think I will bring my Tuscan Poppies and maybe a few little other treats.

That was a lot to take in, but I had a lot of time to make up for.

36 hours...

until the doors open at GlassyAlley for Studio Tour!

My display is set and ready to go. I forgot my camera today so there is no preview peek at my space. But it looks really good and I am happy with the results. Now the space just needs to be filled with friends and family, new and old acquaintances. We will have food and wine and plenty of chat and laugh. I am looking to next year already and think I will not display again until June. So this may be the last time to see the jewelry and art of Barbra J. Beller for a long time.

Since there is no sneak of the completed space, here is a peek at my monsterpiece. This is just a 3"x5" look at a 30x40 canvas.

Tuscan Poppies 30x40

I have not touched a canvas is quite a while. In fact, I did a clean out of my new canvas stock and sold all the large (bigger than 16x20) canvases I had. I got tired of hauling framed paintings hither and yon to just drag them home again. So in a fit of frustration and trying to gain some focus, out went the canvases. But at times I just have a burning need to slap some paint on cloth or swirl my paintbrush through pigment. I found this oversized canvas that just needed to be rescued. I had a flash of inspiration when I saw it and could not get it home to the studio fast enough. When I bought it, the cashier kind of looked at me like I was crazy. I handed her my business card and told her to come see what the canvas looked like when I was done with it. She would not even recognize it. I don't even recognize it. So Linda, come see what craziness I did with the monster canvas!

Hope to see you at:

Two days Left

Brag Wall

This has been a topic of conversation lately. I went on a tour of a spectacular house in Amarillo, Texas. There was a wall of pictures and accomplishments of the past home owner. The tour guide said that the home owner was a modest woman and did not do this wall. It was done by someone else "because you just cannot do your own brag wall". I personally didn't agree with that thought. Just think of any professional's office you have seen. There is a wall of diplomas or pictures with special (famous) people.

When I was a kid, my mother made a scrapbook that included all my "accomplishments" and awards. There is a picture of me from the local newspaper. My old report cards, music programs, and contest critiques are all there. It is a walk through my childhood when I look at it. But at some point, it just ends.

At a recent event, one of the vendors came by to show me a full page write up about her business in a magazine. I was so excited for her and her business. I told her she needed to display it in her booth. She said she was having a hard time with that because she didn't want people to think she was bragging. I told her I would brag for her and promptly went to her booth to make sure the article was properly displayed. Why go to all the trouble to work hard and then not accept the accolades when they come. I don't have a doctorate. I didn't finish my bachelors degree. But I did complete an associates degree in studio art. It is framed in my office. I was on the front page of the paper several years ago. That is hanging on my bulletin board. My mom may not keep a scrapbook of my accomplishments since I became an adult, but I am. It is just a grown up version.

In getting ready for the Local Color Studio Tour this weekend, there have been many advertisements for the event. In today's paper there was an ad, and my necklace was featured in the ad.  I received an email congratulating me on my jewelry being in the paper. I ran down the street to get my own copy.  It is going on my brag wall.

 So for all of you that missed it, here is the necklace that was featured in the Local Color Studio Tour adverstisement in Wednesday's Lubbock Avalance Journal.

Hump Day

Yesterday was a very successful day in the studio. Today the car will be packed and final decisions will be made.
There is no turning back now.

Enjoy your day!

4 Days and Counting...

I will be in the studio today but I feel the need to escape and run some errands, too. Preview first, work next, play later.

The top picture is of a resin piece I did. I used a large button as the bezel cup. The setting is made from recycled tin. I suspended it on a scarf. I wore this to test it out and got a lot of comments. The bottom piece is a small soldered window. The is an image on both sides.

5 Days to Go

I was in the studio most of the day. I have a very large canvas I'm getting ready for the show this weekend. I have the perfect space to hang it in my corner of GlassyAlley Gallery Studio. But I have had to take some time to do a little repair because I was stupid and left it laying on the floor of my studio. I have a four-footed visit who decided it was a good launch pad to jump up onto the bed. My bad. It is coming along and should be done by tomorrow. Which will be a good thing because I have a pile of metal that needs some attention before this weekend.

The list seems endless but the energy is not. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other until there is no time left.
Not much of a peek today since this picture is also on the Lubbock Art Alliance website.

This is a small copper and brass brooch framed. I will have a small selection of metal pins available for sale.

Hanging Day

Today we got to see where we would be displaying and started the process of hanging artwork. Well, everyone else got all their work hung and ready to go. As usual, I only got most of the work hung. I will go back later this week to do my jewelry display. Here is a peek at my corner before.

I may include a picture of the after later in the week. GlassyAlley is a awesome space and I can't wait to see it completely full of our work. What I saw today was exciting! It also made me want to go home and get to work to complete my space with super awesome art.

Hope to see you there!!

Peek Day 3

I have to confess...I did no work in the studio yesterday. Bad artist.
Hopefully today will be a better creative day.
Here is another look at what will be on display and available for sale at the Lubbock Art Alliance Local Color Studio Tour.

I have a whole selection of earrings from very short and delicate to long and dangley. I use natural materials including paper, rocks, and stones. Sometimes I know the names of the rocks and stones and sometimes I am stumped. 
You can have the above pictured earrings for $30 shipped directly to you. If you are local, I will hand deliver.

Don't forget to mark you calendars!

Day 2

Working in the studio today so I will just leave a picture.

Lino print on hand-crafted cotton linter paper. It is 8 1/2 x 11.
I saw a show about ravens on PBS and learned they play in the snow. I knew I just had to do a print of a raven rolling down a hill on crisp, snowy white paper. I have also printed this on t-shirts. I may still have a few left...if anyone is interested!

Sneak Peek!

The CountDown Is On!

Local Color Studio Tour is now just nine days away. We are already making plans for set up at the Gallery. So I promised some peeks at what I have been working on for this year's event. We are just days away and what have I been doing??? Experimenting!! Now is not the time to try new things. Now is the time to be pricing and packing what I have been creating this year. But nnoooo...I have to be running from store to store looking for the elusive supply to make it work. I have a huge canvas in the process of being done. It needs to be hung on Sunday. I don't know if it will make it. The idea in my head is really good. The layout on the canvas is a little different. There is no telling what will finally end up on the canvas and if it makes it to the wall.
So enough chatter...

I have been experimenting with adding a check out button and I think I made it work! If you would like to purchase this necklace, it is $40 and that includes shipping, handling, sales tax, and a smile. This button should take you to PayPal to check out. You can leave your shipping address in the comment box. If you are local, I can deliver it to you personally. Hopefully the next buy it now button will have the price and/or description included.

This is part of my upcycled, reclaimed collection. In this lot of treasures, I have this sparkly frog, a bluebird, and a bee. My mother has already claimed one of the bluebirds. I have been wearing one of the bees. I had to put the frog into my stock box before it got snatched up by someone else!

I love to find little treasures and add some different elements to it and make it new again. My treasure collection comes from all over. When I went to NYC, my traveling companion noticed I was picking up stuff from the street. When she realized I love to find stuff and make it into jewelry, the hunt was on! We found trinkets on the street, on the bus, where ever people dropped cool little bits.

Stay tuned to tomorrow for another peek!

Local Color Studio Tour

Yeah! The countdown is on for the big event of the fall season...or at least the big event on my schedule! Below is a link to my page on the 16th Annual Local Color Studio Tour website. Sorry my name is misspelled. They are working on getting that changed. I hesitate to put the link here because whenever I look at the page with my work but someone else's just freaks me out a little bit. So I hope you can look past that to see the small peek of what I will have to offer this year at the Lubbock Local Color Studio Tour.

I encourage you to take a look at the other artists. At right is a glass piece by Pauline Mills. She will be my Studio Host and fellow artist on the Tour. I love this piece. She told me she plans on doing a series of each season. Love It!

This is to confirm that I will be at:

Grape Day
Llano Estacado Winery
October 27, 2012
10 am to 5 pm

I have created a line of grape themed earrings for the event. Hopefully, I will get some pictures of those loaded soon. This is a super cool event that I have gone to since its beginning. But this will be the first year I am going as a vendor instead of a drinker. There is a small admission charge but you get a commemorative glass to take home with you when you are finished sampling and imbibing. There will food and live music, too. Plus other vendors selling their wares.

So stop by for a glass of wine, a snack, and some good times!

Filling in the Schedule

So I have been looking at the calendar and filling in all the squares with the activities of fall.  Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale is always a must. When I worked retail, it was on my requested day off list. Now that I am my own boss and maker of my own schedule again, Book Sale is in ink. October 26-29, 2012, Lubbock, TX.

I was also able to ink in Grape Day at Llano Estacado Winery. It is another annual event I have always gone to as observer and imbiber. But this year, I will be a vendor. It is confirmed I will have an 8" space to display the wares. I have been working on some grape themed earrings in commemoration of this event. I love this event because if you are not a wine drinker, it is a chance to sample all the different varieties the Winery makes. Then you can decide for yourself what you like and don't like. There will also be some food vendors and live music.
Grape Day

I am going to leave you with a sneak peek. The top pic is of hammered brass and carnelian earrings. The bottom is of a copper necklace on leather. This is a rare sighting of my copper work. I hope you feel privileged to see it.

Multiplicity Gallery

Oh, my! I have been very remiss in updating my blog. So sorry, blog readers! But I have been busy on the business end of art once again.
Exciting news!
I am now displaying at Multiplicity Gallery in Slaton, Texas. I had a great showing at the Fifth Friday in Slaton event on August 31, 2012. Multiplicity is the new gallery three doors down from the Slaton Bakery on the Square. Carol Koenig is the owner, operator, artist. Thanks Carol for creating an artist friendly gallery space and inviting me to be a part of it.

Here is just a teaser.

You have to go to the gallery to see the good stuff in person. I completed a necklace, earring, and pin set with dolphins. There are several pairs of embossed brass earrings. And a whole slew of whimsical earrings created with all different materials...paper, metal, stones from my trip to NYC... 
Check out the Multiplicity website for events and class information.

Save the Date

Here is a quick update on my fall event schedule.
I am currently making plans to participate in the Local Color Studio Tour sponsored by the Lubbock Art Alliance. It will be held November 10 and 11, 2012 here in Lubbock, Texas. I will find out on Monday my "studio home" for the Tour.

I have been busy in the studio working on new designs incorporating some new materials. I can't wait for the great unveiling of the Fall Collection. But for the loyal, there will be a couple of opportunities for sneak peeks coming up at the end of August and mid-October. Stay tuned for location and date updates.

Meanwhile, here are a few more pictures of my adventures in the Big Apple. Apparently I was not interested in much other than food, shopping, and souvenirs.

Here is a piece of super awesome cheesecake from Junior's. As you can see, I could not wait to take a picture before I had a bite. Yum!

Of course, we had to stop at the Godiva Chocolate store for a sample... and a purchase.

Couldn't stop to buy the fresh flowers but I could take a picture to remember the moment.

Thursday, August 2, 2012


I just got back from a whirlwind trip to NYC, Niagara Falls, and Toronto. As I have been going through my pictures, I realized I didn't take any iconic shots. The top picture is as close as I could come. Rockefeller Center during the summer.

I was all about the food. This is a shot of the tasty treats from the famous Magnolia Bakery. Yes, it was good enough that we went twice! Yum! Chocolate silk pie, chocolate cupcakes, and cookies!!

And what did I take a picture of while we were in Time Square? Yes, you have it. Street vendors and horses. Now I should have taken a picture of the Walgreen's. It became a favorite spot. We bought souvenirs and band-aides and other tourist supplies. Coming from the land of flat, it was interesting to take time to shop in familiar stores with unfamiliar two and three stories. Good use of the space!

Festival Fun

Here is a picture of the mini-set-up for the High Art on the South Plains. As a group, The Llano Estacado Clay Guild had an awesome array of art. The South Plains Woodturners demonstrated and the Quilting Guild had a beautiful fabric art display. Despite the heat, there was an excellent turnout for the event. Below is a pic of Brenda, friend and customer, wearing one of my necklaces and the matching earrings she purchased at the Lubbock Arts Festival in April.

Thanks so much to all the friends, family, and the like for coming out to enjoy the food, fun, and festivities.

Had to include a picture of me and my best roadie!

Here is a link for more pictures by Amanda Madrid of the High Art on the South Plains event:

Post-Show Work

This week has been all about tying up loose ends from the Wine and Clay Festival. I had a few custom necklaces to get done. Studio clean up from the last minute mad dash of last week. Putting away my awesome display stuff.
Speaking of display...Thanks for all the great comments about my new set-up. It debuted at the Lubbock Arts Festival in April, and it has gotten rave reviews every time it is seen. I have a few variations so each show has its own specific look. My mother is the 3-D design expert so she actually designed the under workings with all the stuff I had collected. Then we draped the table with many layers of fabric...that too I had collected this past year. The final step is placing all the necklace busts and lights to create the magic.
Voila! Art show in a bag.
Each event has new merchandise to showcase and that adds to the uniqueness of each event.

Here is an example of the mini version of my 2012 display. At its debut, I had 16 feet of room. This is just 4 feet. At the Winery last weekend, I did an 8 foot version. While I was setting up, I had other artists watch and absorb. One told me she was going to "steal" some of my ideas. Go right ahead. We need to bring more interest to Art Shows. Our art is better received and sold if it is displayed in a pleasing manner. So go for it! Change up your set-up. Draw a new audience. Put that 3-D design class to work!

Heat of Summer is Here!

As I watch the temperature rise, I think back to times when I was cold and wishing for warmer weather. Ah, yes. Walking to the Art Institute of Chicago was a cold, cold day. I was there for a conference and before we flew out, my travel companion and I decided a quick trip to the Art Institute was in order. It had been a cool March in Chicago but when we woke up Sunday morning, the city was blanketed under an unexpected layer of snow. So down Michigan Ave. we drag our suitcases through the sludge on the sidewalk. It really was a beautiful sight to see the snow falling on the Lake but not so fun with the suitcases in hand. 

That's better.
I have a cold mind set now.
Back to my studio and the heat of the South I go.

Inspiration and Community

We all get our inspiration from different places. I took a workshop last year where we discussed this extensively. What is the difference between copying someone else's work and just being inspired by their work? The perimeters the instructor put out for herself was to change three things about the work...the size, shape, color, material...that inspired her to create something of her own. That's a good rule of thumb, but why not just do our own thing? I saw a bracelet that I just loved. I thought to myself, I can do that. Yeah, right. We all know how that works out.

I get my inspiration from the world around me. Recently I have been reading a blog: Adele's work is pictured above. This artist inspires me with the goals she has set out for herself. She is not afraid to share her successes and her failures. She gives the reader a glimpse into her day as an artist, and she is very good about posting pictures to go with her words. She has inspired me to be more diligent about taking photos so I too can share things along the way with both words and pictures. She also has a Buy It Now button attached to her blog so readers can purchase her art directly. That is a trick I have not figured out yet.

There is a vast virtual art community at the tips of our fingers. I have been asked recently by several viewers of my art if I sell on the internet or if I have a website. I could sell my stuff for big bucks if I just put myself out there. Yes, that is true and a dilemma I have been wrestling with for many years now. I see the advantage of having a web presence. I love it when other artists have a website I visit to see where they are showing or if they have the perfect piece I want to purchase. But I am not ready for that kind of market. I love talking with guests that stop at my booth. There is a personal interaction that happens when someone looks at my work, loves it or hates it, (whatever the case may be) and I get to watch that inner reaction. Most times people share what they are feeling or thinking or ask questions. I love talking about how I do my work or what materials I use or where I come up with my ideas. Those conversations fuel me for the times when I am alone in my studio. It is a good way to balance not thinking too much of ourself and our work to knowing that other people appreciate it, too.

I recently created a piece to enter an event where I was also going to be a vendor. After spending untold hours designing, second guessing, and creating my show piece, I was really proud of the finished product. I photographed it and sent in the forms for the show. But I didn't share it to anyone. I just put it in my personal display case in the studio and continued on my creating way. When it was time for the event, I was almost shaking when I dropped it off. Seeing it in the gallery for the first time was like receiving the world's acceptance, and it agreed with me that it was good. I got lots of comments about it, mostly good. But the best came from the patron who purchased it. Once it was placed on her neck, she refused to take it off. She happily displayed it and stopped for others to look at it. She talked about what she liked about it and left the event with a smile. I may never see her again but she totally made my day, my week, maybe even my year. 

So cruise through books, magazines, galleries, blogs and see what artists are creating in your area. Join the artist community and have a conversation or discussion. Thank an artist for their hard work and voice your opinion.
Buy what you like but go home and create what you feel.

I haven't been in the studio to work in a couple of weeks. All those life things that have been stewing on the back burner have needed some attention. But that doesn't stop the creative flow or desire. In between running errands and such, I still have found the time to buy some new stones to work with, and I can't wait for a few free minutes to create something new. Inspiration is everywhere. This top photo was taken at the Dallas Museum of Art in the Cafe area. I love this wall of Chuluy glass pieces. He is an amazing artist and this display still makes me stop and stare no matter how many times I have seen it. I think I am going to spend some time working on a series of earrings that are this colorful...

Despite no new shows, I have still sold a few pieces...from the trunk of my car! Yes, I admit it. I did a delivery a while back for a custom job. The client told me to bring in a few extra pieces, you never know who will be around. So that trip yielded the sale of two pairs of earrings and a necklace. The "leftover" bag of goodies has been riding around in the trunk of my car. When people ask what I have been up to or how my last show went, I mention I have a few pieces with me if they would like to take a peek. People love it when they get a peek at the secret stash!

The month of May is dedicated to doing some behind-the-scenes work for b street studios. The next event I plan on showing at will be the LECG Wine and Clay Festival at the Llano Winery in Lubbock, Texas. The date for that event is June 9 and 10. More info about that when it becomes available.

Art Business

So the business side of the art world is never done. I have spent this week emptying the car from the last show, cleaning up my storage area to put everything from the last show, rearranging my display stuff in the storage area in prepartion of the next show... I have a few appointments this week to delivery custom earrings to coordinate with necklaces that have already been purchased. I also have been lining up some little non-artist jobs so I have money to spend on my art supplies and such. Life is never dull!

Part of my art business this week has been that I received an email from a local restaurant looking for art to hang. I got really excited, forwarded this information to my local art community buddies, and then went to my picture folder to forward some pics of my own artwork. And promptly realized that I don't have any pictures of the artwork I currently have to sell. I only have pictures of artwork that is gone! Just another chore I added to the art business "to-do" list. I hope I can get some good pictures soon so as to take advantage of being displayed at the totally cool local eatery, The Funky Door, before all my pals take up the best spots!

In my picture files, I do have great pictures of my friend's work. Here is just an example of what Kathryn Millis Flanagan has to offer. This is from an event, Art Splash on the Square, we did together in Graham, Texas several years ago. 

Back to my "to-do" list!

Stop to Smell the Roses

Just a quick walk through the backyard to see what spring has done to the plants. The smell was just awesome from all the roses in bloom.
Found a few iris were also blooming. Got to love the Iris Society sale. We have quite a collection.

And of course, our daisy that always blooms is still alive and kicking.
After a relaxing walk, it was back to the studio to get ready for this weekend's event. There will be a variety of vendors present with all different kinds of goods. So stop by to look and chat.

This event is to benefit the Adult Protective Services Silver Star Room of the Llano Estacado. It is a small charity that does a wonderful, quiet work for the senior community. The APS Silver Star Room collects food and other necessities for seniors who have been abused or neglected. It is a collection point for canned goods, boxed dinners, dried milk and other high protein foods, as well as blankets, cookware and other necessities. They don’t have an advertising budget and have gone largely unknown for the past decade, but their impact has been immeasurable for scores of abused and neglected elders.

Here is the perfect opportunity to help support a small charity in need of assistance. We artists will have a table full of donated arts with the proceeds going to the APS Silver Star Room. All are welcome to bring donated canned goods and other provisions to add to the APS storehouses.

Life outside the Studio

My mother and I went to visit our neighbors...Glitter, Razzle, and Aerostar. Yes, they are horses. When Glitter was pregnant with Cats Track Paint better known as "Razzle", we would bring her bananas as a treat. So now that the baby is here, we bring everyone fresh cut grass. They just gobble it up. In fact, today Razzle tried to take a bite out of Mother's hat! It is a nice break during the day to walk over and pet the horses.

Hump Day

Still recovering from Lubbock Arts Festival last weekend. I have not downloaded pics yet so today will be about the upcoming weekend. April 21, 2012 I will be at Mackenzie House located here in Lubbock at 8609 Boston Ave. It is an assisted living center hosting a Jewelry and Craft Show on Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 9:30 am to 3 pm. Stop by to see my new spring collection including my reclaimed necklaces, copper necklaces, and paper earrings.
