Fall into the Arts in Battle Creek MI

Fall into the Arts in Battle Creek in October was a great success! i sold 1 print and several greeting cards too. personally for me the best thing is the socializing and networking as an artist at these events, i love meeting new artists and artist patrons. The evening of the event i was in the Heritage Tower and my son Sam played his guitar. we had a great time. the Downtown partnership for Battle Creek (Alyssa and Terri) do a great job of promoting the event and getting sponsors. here a couple of pictures of the event. check out www.downtownbattlecreek.com
