American artist Pat Timbrook is a full-time fine art painter living in the state of West Virginia. Pat has sold many of her large abstract acrylic paintings over the years. But, in September 2016, Pat began a new venture with the owner a local clothing boutique called MIXX. The artist placed many of her small abstract paintings on display in the boutique, using ART-to-Go as her selling point. That is, making small and affordable pieces that are easy for buyers to purchase and carry home. She develop this sales concept, reaching out to fashion conscious shoppers, after coming to the conclusion that not many people in her area knew how or where to purchase art locally. Pat knows that not everyone can afford to make a large art purchase, so she wanted to offer an easy option to buyers to own her smaller works. “There are still many people whom we know who cannot afford art at big prices. The clientele of MIXX varies in income range. Plus, we have factored in other business possibilities to help make this work. It’s a new venue for the boutique owner and for me as an artist,” says Pat Timbrook.

Apart from all the works shown on her websites here, and her ART-to-Go sales project, Pat has also taken up another new art project. This year, she completing 10 contemporary abstract acrylic paintings in her series called Flowers for Vince. These paintings will be used for prints sales to raise funds for a children’s charity organization in the Philippines called www.H_manility.org, founded and run by her close friends Bryan and Diane Thomas. The purpose of this painting series is to honor Vince, a five-year-old child at the children’s home, who was killed by a car in the Spring of 2016 as he played in the street. Sale of prints from the paintings will also help fund the children’s organization.

Update: the Worlds First Art Mall

On November 25th 2012, I published news of the K11 Art Space, the Worlds First Art Mall, which is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of the city of Hong Kong.

The K11 Art Space Art Mall has grown considerably since I first wrote about it here! Like many visitors to Hong Kong, I quickly found myself in the Tsim Sha Tsui district shortly after arrival, on direct route from the airport, in search of an affordable room and the best places to shop. The Tsim Sha Tsui district has a lovely night view of the waterfront and city skyline, a public fine arts library, and a new fine arts museum under construction.

  • K11 Art Space now publishes the free Artoid art magazine.
  • K11 Art Space is showcasing the Photography Exhibition – Scenes of the City, on view from the 6th of January to the 3rd of February 2015. Photographs by expatriate Hong Kong resident from The Philippines, Xyza Cruz Bacani. Her work has been featured in The New York Times and Vogue.

K11 Art Space Art Mall exhibits, promotes and sells local artists and artists based internationally in live exhibitions, online, and in their K11 Design Store. K11 Design Store features budding and exceptional designers from all over the world every season. In the past they have feature design works by an American living as an expatriate in Thailand and other artist-designers living in France and Italy.
