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’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.

A former GCISD art teacher, and fellow member of the Grapevine Art ProjectChris Brandley has something a little special to celebrate this holiday season. One of her oil paintings was licensed for use on Christmas snack tins. The tins have some mass distribution as they’re for sale at Big Lots stores around the country! I’ve nabbed some images from the artist’s website so you can see for yourself.

You can read the adventure of not only how the painting came to be, but how her art ended up on these tins by clicking here to visit her blog entry on the subject. So if you go into a Big Lots store and find the tins, I encourage you to send her a selfie with the post to her Facebook page, it’ll make her smile! Of course you can not only take a tin home from a Big Lots, but she has prints for sale of her artwork too.
I’ve got 4 different outlets this month where my photography is on exhibit. One of them now open to the public is at the historic Palace Arts Center in Grapevine where my photograph I took of Beacon Falls in the Hudson River Valley in New York entitled Bridge Over Troubled Waters is on display. It is but one work among many of the other talented works by members from the Grapevine Art Project. The show is free and open to the public.
