Artexpo New York 2010 Exhibitor Lands a Contract with Art.com

Artexpo 2010 exhibitor John Woolley is now a featured artist on Art.com

Many artists ask me what kind of exposure and networking opportunities Artexpo New York can offer. Simply put, a single show can have an extraordinary impact upon your career. Take 11-year-old artist John Woolley, for instance.

At the show, John sold 35 pieces of art (actor Jane Seymour and Peter Rosenthal of NYC’s First Creative Capital were among the buyers). John was also interviewed for Art Business News Magazine, Urban Sketchers, Moonlight Chronicles and The Press-Enterprise, and was featured in the Artexpo New York 2010 Show Guide. He forged connections with many different industry professionals and recently landed a contract with Art.com. Congrats to John Woolley, a young man with considerable talent!

John was 9 years old when he first started drawing and painting on a regular basis. Inspired by everyday scenes from his neighborhood, he began his “Backyard Journals” series, which included imaginative drawings and musings.

Rob Carey, of Urban Sketchers, has this to say about John’s work:

“A quick perusal of John’s sketches reveals his pure love of drawing…. After showing some of my students samples of John’s sketches, they were amazed a boy their own age had such talent. His sense of proportion and perspective, and his use of cross-hatching and composition are exceptional.”

Congrats again to John Woolley—I’m thrilled to hear about this latest success. Hope we see you again at Artexpo New York 2011! For more info on John, you can visit his website: www.backyardjournals.com Also, here’s his product page on art.com

    What an amazing guy this John Woolley is!! And what an artist at 11 years old. He certainly has a great future ahead of him. I might just have to buy a few pieces of his artwork like Jane Seymour and Peter Rosenthal did before his prices are out-of-sight. Keep up the great work.

Also very fortunate to have such a supportive family. I am very proud to own a few pieces of John’s work and have my eye on several more! Looking forward to watching his career take flight!
