Throwing My Own Art Show

Why did I do this?

For the past year, I've been focusing on making art, something I never thought I'd do. A lot of people close to me know me as a graphic designer and not an artist. I wanted to come out to my friends, family and the world with an event that offered a glimpse into the world of Ponnopozz.

I opted to host the event myself because I wanted total control of the experience and I didn't want to give half my hard earned profits to an art gallery. I'm not knocking this approach – I do believe galleries grant you wonderful exposure and validation – but something didn't feel right about that path for me. This whole art thing has taken me to unexpected places, so why would my first show be normal? Plus, I typically resist authority or traditional approaches so finding a way to do something different felt more authentic.

I thought of the venue while cleaning yoga mats at Corepower in July 2018. I was fretting about moving in with Seth and getting an apartment way before my current lease ended. To me, paying for two apartments over the course of a month was a complete waste of money – until I thought of hosting the art show there. It made total sense – I'd be moved out by 8/15 and had the apartment until 9/30 so it gave me plenty of time to do something.
