The 1st ever Art'n'light Clearance Sale will start tomorrow at 11.am at the Loose Ends Store, Bandra. My association with Loose Ends is a special one. I have always felt connected to Madhumita Goswami and trusted her innately. She is one of the 1st people to contact me to retail my products & ever since, its really been great working with her.
This is very different exhibition and many 1sts for me - the1st exhibition I will have at a store, the 1st time I am alone & not with many many exhibitors and the 1st time I'm holding a discount & clearance sale. I decided to have it because there were many pieces that were accumulating with a spot here & a chip there that I was reluctant to send to my retailers or sell them myself at my exhibitions. Also the finish of my products when I started was different than it is now. And I could never get myself to sell both at the same place. Thats when I figured that I could sell them at a discount. I'm very curious to see how it all goes. Will people come? In so many ways I feel this weekend will be a reality check for me. In a way every exhibition is, but more so this one.
Many pieces of wall art from my 1st exhibition will be there. So that is special. Many pieces which I have never carried to any other exhibition will be there. Like my photography framed, or some of my designs framed & my one off experiments like this little photoframe here.
I'm still not very sure I actually want to sell this piece. It hung on my office walls after I quit my job 2 years, before I moved into my new larger workshop. It is special for me & in a weird kind of way, I will be happy if it doesn't get sold. Its up for sale because, because who knows if it is meant to go to someone else? Its a possibility I must be open to.
Do treat this as a personal invitation & do drop by. I will be there, it will be great fun to meet up :)
