Breakfast with the ARTIST

Foccacia Rustica is a small French bistro in the heart of Coconut Grove. This venue has proved to be productive for the artist on several levels. The hanging and size requirements challenge the artist and the location brings in a clientele that may not wander out for each and every nighttime art opening. Focaccia Rustica has been the artists' friend from the start. Through this small bistro, sales have been made, one artist found herself invited to mount a one woman exhibition at a well known gallery and many friends have been introduced to one another over coffee. The breakfast is an inexpensive dutch treat affair.
This Saturday April 18, 10 a.m. will be my affair. The work as you can see is small and tourist oriented, my Flip Flops are my bread and butter art. I've sold two pcs. to date at Focaccia Rustica. A good way for artists to see how it functions is to attend. For all artists this is your open invitation. Via one of these breakfasts I met Holland, who came to support an artist friend of hers from a figure drawing class. Getting to know her was pleasant and we followed up with studio visits. I extended an invitation for her to showcase her work in this space. She is now working on putting together a cohesive body of small art. If you read this and you're in the area this Saturday morning come join in and have "Breakfast with the Artist". It is a place where you can hear and converse with any number of people at one time over coffee, croissants, or your choice of breakfast. Hope to see you there. Focaccia Rustica is located at 3111 Grand Ave. Coconut Grove.
