47 (who?)
Earlier I had put out a call for entries for a show of DA prints at a local cafe, and after a series of missteps and mishaps, the show finally got on the road.

Barefoot Coffee Roasters is a funky venue in Silicon Valley that caters to a rather broad clientele, and offers everything from a rather quirky staff to even quirkier musical performances regularly.  Everyone from tech-startup executive staff to retired musicians (the former guitarist to Iggy and the Stooges is a regular) make part of their day there.

I made arrangments to show off DA artists there for the month of April, and in the end, zemotion, noah-kh, IngeVandormael, kucharo, fourteenthstar, fangedfem, Yamenja, and yours truly are on display.  

Basically I made arrangements that they would send prints within certain parameters to me. I would frame, mount and install them and provide contact info at the venue, and return said prints back once the show concluded. I am hoping if this takes off to try again later this year, with either all new artists, or a mix of old and new (depending on who is up for it).

I would like to thank the artists, including those who I was not able to due to logistics to include but wanted to, and to everyone who was patient in letting me figure out how to pull this off without losing my mind.

hi just read your article and it sounds like it was fun exciting and very stressful all at the same tie - can i just ask (and i am not bitchin or moaning - just asking because i may have missed a bit of info-i have been offline for a bit) why are the people who have been chosen staff -just that if it happens again in future i would like to promote it in my journal but if only staff are used then i would nt want to set people up for dissapointment if you know what imean - a very interesting idea :clap:

Are you going to do this again in the Silicon Valley? I live in the area, so I'd LOVE to see dA represented in the Bay Area, and submit some entries myself.

I've been told by some artists I know that I should do a show, but I don't know how to market myself, and I only have a couple of quality prints anyway.

I am going to attempt to schedule at least one more show in 2007, and if I get a venue, I will make another invitation the same as I did for this one.
