You can find me with more than 20 other local artists inside the Foust Funeral Home and Event Space located at 523 S. Main Street in Grapevine, Texas. Don’t worry, there’s no funerals during festival weekends. Guests can “Texperience” more than 75 craft brews from 36 breweries across 15 states, boogie down to live music on three stages, sample delicious festival food and much more right in the heart of Historic Downtown Grapevine. Free parking with complimentary shuttle service is offered. Admission prior to 5pm Friday is free, the rest of the weekend has an admission fee to enter. For more details please visit the official site.
I’ll be bringing a range of product from blank greeting cards, photographic prints, ready to hang works, as well as highly collectible museum conservation quality signed, numbered, and limited edition prints.
I’ll be set up inside the Sagebrush Cafe located at 1020 Halsell Street in Bridgeport, Texas, which closes its food service at 2pm that day. The Art Walk is happening in conjunction with the Butterfield Stage Days Rodeo and Rodeo Parade, which celebrates the toll bridge built over the Trinity River built for the Butterfield Stage in 1860. More information about the BSDR&RP can be found at the official site here, for information specifically about the art walk please visit the FACEBOOK event page.
I’ll have a range of my photographic works on sale including blank greeting cards, prints, and ready to hang artworks.
As an emerging artist, here’s the photographic works I will bring to this year’s Main ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (April 19-22, 2018). You can find me near Sundance Square, at the intersection of 3rd & Main Street inside Booth #351. Please drop by and say hi!
This past January while the Fort Worth Stockyards were happening, I had an opportunity to go to the attached carnival and experiment with some long exposure photography. By allowing my camera to take in light slowly over a longer period of time, I get to see the rides come alive thanks to all their decorative lights.
I’m honored to say that I have 5 pieces on display [featured below] in the Grapevine Art Project‘s Juried Art Exhibit in the Tower Gallery inside the Grapevine Convention and Visitor’s Center located at 636 S. Main Street in downtown Grapevine, Texas.
The Free Exhibit runs April 6-26, 2018 and is full of art encompassing a range of mediums: jewelry, ceramics, photography, painting, block printing, textiles and so much more! If something catches your eye, guess what — it’s for sale too! Gallery hours coincide with the hours of the Visitor’s Center itself.

Unfortunately for me, I will not be at the Artist Reception on April 21st, since it happens to coincide with my appearance at the Main ST Fort Worth Arts Festival. But many of the other artists will be on hand to talk about their art and process, plus there’s free refreshments too.So if you’re not visiting me at my booth in Fort Worth, then I’d recommend you pop in for an evening of art!
I’ll be doing a presentation for my fellow artists at this week’s monthly Grapevine Art Project meeting. As part of that presentation, I’m asking folks to click on this link: “http://bit.ly/2tlkZoY” and in turn to also post and share it, asking others to click on the link and copy it exactly as it appears. You’ll find out why during the presentation!
For those not in attendance, and who are curious I’ll update this post with the reason why after the meeting.
Here’s the blurb from the Grapevine Art Project website:
Grapevine Art Project Member and photographer K. C. Hulsman, possesses over 10 years of experience marketing in the pop culture entertainment field. She worked her way up from an entry level coordinator to a Brand Manager that supervised over a hundred entertainment properties, including multi-million dollar properties that aired on TV. During her marketing career she’s had to become a veritable chameleon and jack-of-all-trades, and that included both social media and online marketing. Join us for her presentation geared to fellow artists on the ever-changing arena of online marketing with a focus on the importance of social media for growing your business and profile, insights into social media outlets, strategies for implementation and content generation, as well as helpful resources and tips! A Q&A will follow the presentation. KC’s knowledge base is dense, so we recommend you come ready to take notes.

I’m incredibly thrilled to announce that I have been named an emerging artist for this year’s Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival, which will be held April 19-22, 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival is one of the top three juried Fine Arts Festivals in the United States, which uses a five-member panel of art professionals to make their selections. They had 1282 artists apply from around the world. While 223 artists were invited to participate, their emerging artist category is specifically used to help spotlight new and emerging Texas artists. To be included in this group of 20 artists across a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, and jewelry is a tremendous honor. There’s only a very limited part of a career where an artist can be eligible for this category, and this was in all likelihood the only time I would ever by eligible for this wonderful opportunity that will have long-lasting repercussions for my career. To say that I’m ecstatic, is an understatement.
So please save the following dates: April 19-22, 2018 and come out and support all of the amazingly-talented artists specially selected to this year’s festival. I’ll look forward to you visiting me at Booth #351 (near the intersection of 3rd Street & Main Street).
I’m pleased to announce that out of a multitude of submissions from across the United States, my work, Wide Open Spaces, will be part of the 3rd Annual Conroe Art League National Invitational Show featuring 100 artistic pieces from 95 artists as selected by Juror Peter Andrew, Professor of Art at Stephen F. Austin State University.
Mr. Andrew is a Fulbright Fellow and member of the New York Society of Illustrators. He is also a working artist with the Liquitex Acrylic’s Artist’s Outreach Program. As an accomplished figurative and abstract painter, his work has been featured in over fifty solo shows and two hundred group shows. His paintings have been exhibited at three Presidential Inaugural Galas in Washington, DC. His commissions have included such clients as Amegy Bank, Houston Methodist Hospital and Fort Belvoir US Army Hospital, Virginia. See more about Peter and his art at www.peterandrew.net.
