Family, friends and fans,
First and foremost, I can't thank you enough for all of the cheerleading that's been taking place over the course of the last few years while you've watched me grow and pursue my professional art dreams!
While hustling towards my ultimate goal of success within my career has it's up's and downs, moments of triumph and moments where I just want to throw in the towel, it's the folks that believe in me and what I do that keep my fuel levels high. Not only will I not let you down, I won't let my self down.
So let's get down to what I'm proposing...
The Artist Project is a mega Toronto Art Exhibition that takes place once a year housing over 250 top contemporary artists from Canada and abroad.
This is my second year as an exhibitor for this well renound weekend long show and let's just say, it's not for the faint at heart. A lot of time, devotion and dough go into participating in this exhibition but it's well worth it. During this show, I'll have access towards gaining ample exposure, the opportunity to network my socks off and of course the opportunity to get my art out there and in the flesh for potential art buyers, gallery owners, curators and the media to view in the flesh.
The show will run from February 23rd - February 26th and I'll be exhibiting all that is Lipstick Lex! It has been my primary focus this past year as I believe this unique art approach holds great potential.
My expenses to participate in this show are a bit daunting and will run me just under $6,000. This includes my booth fee, the surplus of art supplies that have gone into creating enough content (canvas, lipsticks, epoxy resin and framing), as well as the purchase of electricity, lighting, storage equipment, and various items and furnishings needed for my booth.
What I am asking for today is your support as a friend, family member, client, art appreciator and fan/follower by helping me fund this project/exhibition. While many of you may not have the means of purchasing my art, a small contribution to help me cover a bit of my of $6,000 expense would truly mean the world!
This will provide me with the comfort and peace of mind knowing that a chunk of my expenses are covered, thus any sales I make can go towards the things in life that matter most (a down payment for a house, our kids education funds and the means towards further developing my business - just to name a few).
Lipstick Lex is on the rise. I can feel it! And with a little support, you can help get me there just a wee bit sooner!
With sincerest gratitude,
Alexis (Lipstick Lex)
