huguette's 85th birthday

2017

 

 

may 1, 2017

huguette turns 85 and a huge party was organized to honour her for all the good she did to many of us (luckily we honoured her at the occasion, we were far from imagining her being gone a year later ravaged by cancer).

a huge table was set up and a seating arrangement would be needed to make sure all of her guests knew where they would be seated.

we placed this 'plan de table' immediately at the entrance of the banquet hall.

MESSAGE from THE NEWBIE that I am in the Art World

As a newbie int the art jungle I had to learn quite a painful lesson indeed - two years ago I was contacted by

ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK 

telling me that they were quite interested in representing me and my artwork.

THAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER ...


As a newbie I have never before heard about so-called VANITY GALLERIES, etc. and believed that - if you wish to exhibit here and there - then one  would have to pay for that. Today I - as well as plenty of other unhappy artists which had put their faith in ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY - have learned that I had been fooled for almost 2 years and that my reputation as an artist must have been dangerously jeopardized because of my ignorance and naiveté, or - as many art critics see it - for wanting to boost my ego.

That has never been my attention at all ... unfortunuately, I didn't know it better at that time.

What had happen however is that not only did ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY  NOT do anything of what they promised and got largely paid for

 but worst of all - they never returned my two artworks in their "care"


# 280   THE TEAR

as well as

# 285   BREAKING FREE - the last journey of huguette


The two artworks that connected me to my late mother-in-law !!!

 

May this mishap be a warning to other inexperienced artists - never accept invitations from any VANITY GALLERY that are pure scam ...             

 Be careful, watch out, check out before making a decision involving your artwork or your money !!!
