The Krissy Whiski Traveling Art Truck

The Krissy Whiski Traveling Art Truck

If you follow me on social media, you've probably seen me post about the art truck. Now it's time to get into the details. The idea for the art truck came sometime in 2019. Shortly after experimenting with the mobile art cart. If you haven't seen that, here's a photo.
The mobile art cart was an idea from 2017, that Jeff built for me, so I could easily paint outdoors, at pop-up art shows and events. It worked out well and the traveling art truck was the obvious next step. It's an art gallery without having to stay put. I can show up with my art anywhere. I can drive my art around.
The traveling art truck has 200 square foot of hanging space There's the length on both sides of the cap, as well as the back. I currently have 5 large paintings displayed in it. It was designed and built by Jeff. We passively tested it on our road trip. If you'd like to learn more, including the technical aspects of the build and the data we were able to get from our tests, below is a video of a  talk Jeff gave at TechLancaster.
No more galleries trying to charge me for wall space. No more hanging fees or bad weather at expensive art fairs and shows. No more wasting hours submitting to juried shows and galleries that don't even bother to respond. No more shipping my art across the country. No more worrying about poor turnout to an event I am participating in. We've solved more issues than I can list.
Being an underground, outsider artist, I tried to find my space in the ecosystem. If you know me well, you know, I've been selling art since 2006 A lot of the ecosystem has changed and is broken. I've been saying that since at least 2018 Covid further broke it. I'm done trying to play the rigged game. There are no rules in art. I can go park out front of museums, galleries and shows. I don't have to ask anyone for permission to have my art seen.
