Here's a video about Jay Schmidt's work showing at the Missoula Art Museum in his own words.
ARTCHAUCER showed work at the Affordable Art Fair Seattle with work by Jay Schmidt, Kathryn W. Schmidt, Harold Schlotzhauer, and Chaucer Silverson. Hosting 50 galleries and a huge array of contemporary art, the first-ever edition of the Affordable Art Fair in Seattle took place November 8-11, 2012 at the Seattle Center.
The Affordable Art Fair concept is an inspiring atmosphere in which you can find thousands of original paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs all under one roof, ranging from $100-$10,000, with more than half priced under $5,000. The work of young, emerging artists hangs alongside some of the biggest household names, and the Emerging Artists Exhibition provides a chance to snap up work by a future art world star.
The A R T C H A U C E R art gallery at the Affordable Art Fair Seattle received coverage in the Art Nerd New York art blog along with many other galleries and artists in attendance. You can see images of the fair, including two shots of the ARTCHAUCER booth on Lauren Albrecht's New York City based blog.
The fair hosted work from the Smart Ship Gallery in Tokyo to the Civilian Art Project Gallery in Washington DC. Many galleries from Seattle represented the Pacific Northwest and Galleries form many points in the U.S. were in attendance including the Galleria el Arupo form Equador and the Villa del Arte Galleries from Barcelona, Spain. Work by Damien Hirst was shown by the Manifold Editions gallery in London and numerous other galleries contributed to provide an accessable collection of affordable art. If the market doesn't come to Bozeman, Montana then Bozeman will have to go to the market.
