Pach goes to Art Expo New York

Where I'm from... I'm from a small town with big hopes and dreams, but is mostly known for sports. We have an even smaller art scene that is doing it's best to survive. It's primarily known as "The Football Hall of Fame" City. It's a place called Canton, and it's in Ohio.  I work a fulltime time job and often much  overtime to support my family, and my creative endeavors. I would love to create public art and formulate ideas to help enhance my community locally, and beyond. I have dreams of philanthropy and art.  I have been blessed to have been a part of some really inspiring events for any artist and have proven to many my beacon and creative competence.  Over the past 20 years I have really pushed myself and my work to the point that I'm synonymous with arts and creativity in my community. I stand in being regarded as one of a handful, in a sea of many. One of my  mottos is, "I'm no Picasso, I just believe in what I do."  I have figured out a unique way to literally paint with fire. I call it "Pyro-Chromatic" arts. 

Where I'm going...  Recently I took a chance and submitted some images of my work to sell and feature at "Art Expo New York 2019".  I received an email the very next day stating that my work was excepted. (I'm super excited to represent my city in such a manner!)  Art Expo New York  I am selected for "Rising Artist", meaning I'm excelling in my creative ability and becoming more known in my region. The booth fee is $2,600 for a 10' x 10' wallspace with lights. Which is fine for me, being this is my first time at a show of this magnitude.

What I need... I would love to attend this event, but I just can't afford it. I need travel money, boarding and food... Which is why I'm trying to reach a $4500 goal. (New York is $$$$) I believe this would open up something much more magnificent for my career as an artist, and make any work I've sold be that more valuable.  So please help me with any donation you can afford. You can donate as many times as you want. I have until the end of the year to come up with the goal. but I only have a few weeks to come up with the down payment.
