23 Sandy and the Emmy!
Pop-Up Art for Grown Ups
Here's something exciting. Remember the TV spot featuring our Pop-Up Now exhibition on KATU’s AM Northwest program way back in October? Well, the photographer who shot the segment, Bob Bullock, won an Emmy! He won for “Photographer – Program – Composite.” The composite included four short segments that he produced, shot and edited—one of which was Pop-Up Now. Bob told me, "I've reached the pinnacle of my career. The only thing bigger I could ever win is an Oscar or a Pulitzer."
A big thanks to all of the artists who were featured in this segment and to all of the artists in the show who helped make this show so compelling. Bob discovered us while taking a break from working at KATU’s studios, which just happen to be located just two blocks away from the gallery. During his walk, the amazing books inside the gallery windows caught his eye and the rest is history.
During my Marketing 101 for Book Artists talk I always talk about the value of entering juried shows. Exposure is one of the greatest benefits. This was great exposure for the artists featured plus great exposure for the book arts in general. A whole new audience discovered the book arts with this plus the Oregon Art Beat feature about the same show. Keep entering all the juried shows you can muster—you just might be part of an Emmy winning show.
