I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
stARTup is a unique concept that connects artists with thousands of collectors, curators, dealers, consultants, art writers, and designers who come to discover and buy art from some of the best independent artists working today. Your work will be reviewed by a prestigious selection committee of art world professionals so you can exhibit your work with confidence, sell on your own terms, and enjoy 100% of the sales.
Exhibiting with stARTup includes:
4 nights plus parking at The Kinney Hotel
20 complimentary fair passes
Free business cards and postcards from MOO.com
Strategic marketing and advertising on your behalf through media buys, social media marketing, and other key partnerships.
Art and bio featured on the stARTup website with a link to artists' website
Professional support covering all aspects of the art fair experience from pricing and sales strategies to lighting and hanging information, promotion and fair follow-up tips to optimize results beyond the fair weekend.
“I think it's about the quality of the visitor here, not the quantity. The quality has been stupendous. The art writers, the gallerists, etc. On both days we’ve had about 8-10 different gallery owners. At one point there were 3 independent art dealers in here with us at the same time.”
"Thanks for your strong support for us on top of everything else you provided. There is no question in my mind that this was worth both the money and effort...the fair allowed me to more fully envision how this event can be implemented to move my practice forward."
