My 2013 recap email I sent to my mailing list of supporters that I wanted to share here as well:
As we step into 2014, I look back at the variety of events that have changed my life over the past 12 months. 2013 has been epic, to say the least, but it puts 2014 in a whole new exciting light for me. Since a part of last year's success was due to your support of my dream of launching my first solo exhibition, I thought I'd share a visual recap of my 2013 (including what happened after the show) and what's in store for the year ahead. Thank you again for your support and cheers to a happy 2014!
My pop-up exhibit for Soundtracks:Freestyle took place on March 14, 2013 at RogueSpace Gallery in New York City • From that show, my work was mentioned in PM360, Sheen magazine, madamenoire.com, and was selected for an outdoor public exhibit through see.me • I sold a few pieces, and two were commissioned for a residential project in China • I dj'ed quite a bit: the Gansevoort Hotel for a superbowl party, closed out my residency at the C Wonder flagship, and worked the tables for Precious Dreams Foundation celebrity charity fundraiser • I found some time for a little R&R as well - with a vacation to Anguilla.
Want to see what it's like juggling a full-time job, a dj residency, teaching dance classes, all while trying to launch a solo exhibition? It's all here in this mini-documentary, Eunice Kindred • Artist, which takes a look at how I became to be me, the role art has played in my life, and the challenges I encountered turning this dream into a reality.
And in true Eunice fashion, it seems I'll be juggling another hat into my occupational line-up...that of "mom." I closed out the year welcoming a brand new addition to my family. Winter Josefina made her debut on November 26. Feel free to follow our adventures on my blog, da8count.com.
For 2014, my goal is to not only continue to find venues to exhibit my work but to also get my art out into the hands and homes of art-lovers everywhere. Starting today, prints will be available for purchase at my shop on society6.com. Original paintings as well as additional products, such as iphone cases, apparel, and housewares will be released through my shop available on my site. My soundtracks:freestyle Tshirts and iphone cases are currently on sale (so grab one before they sell out!) but look out for the release of additional designs in 2014.
