I am excited to release several new developments! I have been working hard the last few weeks to prepare for my first ever exhibition booth at Illuxcon. Illuxcon is a “ground-breaking art show, symposium, and celebration dedicated solely to imaginative realism” that takes place on October 21-25 in Allentown, PA. Yours truly will be participating in the Showcase, an event during the expo that is at the Allentown Center City Holiday Inn’s on the evenings of Friday, October 23rd from 8 p.m. to MIDNIGHT and Saturday, October 24th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. It’s my very first time exhibiting at Illuxcon, so wish me luck!
“Messenger” and my other recent paintings will be on display and available for sale, as well as prints and a new series of small drawings that I plan on bringing to the event. I am quaking in my boots imagining the incredible amount of talent on display, but am also extremely excited and looking forward to soaking up as much inspiration as possible!
In other news, I have recently switched to a new web hosting service. Enjoy the much decreased loading speed here at colinnitta.com 🙂 I also plan on releasing many more blog posts than I have previously to take advantage of this optimized service and hope you will enjoy my ranting on about the wonders of art. More process posts and how-to posts are forthcoming. Several colleagues and friends have mentioned that they enjoy the strange macgyver posts I occasionally create about how to build maquettes, set up a photography studio on a budget or build custom frames, so I will bring more of that sort of content to the table. I am also aiming to rerelease my online print store, which has gone through a number of iterations up to this point but I hope the next one will stick. Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you are as excited for the future as I am!
