Art Galleries-The holidays

Ah, yes those ‘after Thanksgiving sales’ are upon us and galleries that help local artists survive during these brutal winter months so we don’t have to make cardboard signs for a daily ritual of standing on corners asking for donations are doing their upmost part to keep us warm. I digress, lol.  I have a bunch (that’s artist talk) of artwork in two galleries over this holiday season.  This is one at Katsea Gallery in Towson.

Art Stuff 80-The sketchbooks


Second part of the Art Stuff 80 video was about Sketchbooks. One was mine and one is for Hauptcee. For those following the Hauptcee Haupt year-long oil painting project being documented within the Art Stuff video series, he needs sketchbooks to create ‘doodles’ to develop ideas for his paintings. My treat!
Shown is his first new sketchbook and his first two pages.

Art Stuff 79-Another Art Show

Art Stuff 79-Another Art Show & a few other art things

This 3 minute Ep. focuses on an upcoming group art show and, yes, some other art stuff.

A group show, not a solo.

I’m joining a group of 17 artists that will be displaying lots of art stuff. Some of my work is at the gallery in what you would call permanent display. Some additional artworks for the exhibit I just dropped off at the gallery a couple of days ago.

And these (the three on the workstation), I’m prepping to pack up and take to the gallery in a few days.

And yes, I’m baking some chocolate chip cookies for the opening reception!

Art Stuff 78 – Art and my twin brother

Art Stuff, Episode 78

This Episode recounts all my art projects in motion and the start of a new year-long oil painting project.

It also brings the realization that it’s too much for one artist type person to do.

And with a knock on the door, help has arrived in the form of my fourth twin brother, Hauptcee Haupt.

Yeah!!!

Hauptcee Haupt, my ‘fourth twin brother’

Hello Friends! Please take a moment to read this as a prologue, so that you may better understand my next year-long art project.

Here’s the quick backstory. I had submitted my art to “The Huts Magazine,” an Instagram online/print publication, and it was accepted. Of course, I ordered a print copy. The four images, Biography, and Artist statement all looked good in the magazine’s two-page spread. But ahh, there had been a mishap.

My name was reversed and minus the ‘L’; rather than being Craig L Haupt, I was now Haupt Craig!

While addressing this name snafu with close friends, comments ranged from theorizing that my new name sounded like a German or Dutch Renaissance artist to progressively sillier takes, finally culminating with my announcing I was now Haupt C.  — or the final version — Hauptcee Haupt.

Then why not have a slight bit more fun and sign my next oil painting ‘Hauptcee’. That seemed like a simple progression.

Then I thought if I could have fun as the jovial ‘Hauptcee’ for an evening and a painting, why not be ‘Hauptcee’ for a year?! The next long-range Body of work/series of paintings could all be painted and signed by this fictitious Hauptcee Haupt, kind of like my fictitious ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ ArtStory project.

So, I wanted all of you to know that in my next YouTube video tomorrow I’m going to introduce my fourth twin brother, Hauptcee Haupt. Three previous twin brothers have already been featured in earlier video episodes. And even better, my next solo art show in November 2023 will feature the new oil paintings of Hauptcee Haupt, himself. This artwork project will be the only paintings Hauptcee Haupt will produce. After his year of fame as an artiste, he’ll return to his family in Blue Ridge, Georgia, and continue working in his trade as a plumber and part time Librarian.

All this to make you aware of any references within future YouTube video and social media postings over the next year pertaining to ‘Hauptcee Haupt’ and just who the hell is Craig talking about!!

Thanks for reading and future watching!
