Mandy - handing one of her prints to a customer at her art space in the sun. A Happy Face in the foreground sets the mood for this transaction.
Mandy is part of the "Art In Public Places" program of the San Francisco Arts Commission. A juried certification program allowing an artist to sell his or her art at specific venues within the city.
I joined this group in July and have been selling prints of my work at Justin Herman Plaza a few days each week. I'm really enjoying the process and the fascinating community of artists that are participating in this daily market. Several of them have been doing this for decades.
Our photographer Mandy welcomed me into this experience before I ever attempted setting up my display. She answered my questions, gave pointers, made suggestions, and spoke about what to expect. Above all - she made me feel at ease and welcomed. Thanks, Mandy.
