Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Maybe you've already been struck by the clean-lined modern, yet nostalgic, quality of Brian Jensen's paintings, but he's only been in the art fair business since 2004, so possibly you haven't seen his work. 2011 took him from Scottsdale to Sausalito with a few stops in Iowa and Michigan in between.
He began his career as a graphic illustrator after finishing art school in Minneapolis. He and his wife, Leslie, owned a design studio there, then decided to downsize to a home studio which eventually led them to the art fairs where he's found many collectors.
His work includes original paintings, mosaics, wood trays painted mostly on wood. He also builds his own trays, boxes and frames. There is a cohesiveness and vision to the work that draws you into his booth. His iconic images of Chris-Crafts, MG's, old motorcycles and summer days at the lake resonate with a regional flavor that should be much appreciated at his next show in Chicago, The One of a Kind Show, December 1-4, at the Merchandise Mart.
