Wallace Peck - Sh*t's About to Get Real, Y'all!

Wallace Peck and his artwork are increasingly turning heads (and hearts) all over the capital city. I've had the honor to work with Wallace at Open Door Art Studio for almost two years, and I knew from the minute that I laid eyes on his drawings and paintings that he was destined for greatness. Wallace has a unique gift and a way of looking at the world that no one else can come close to achieving (no matter how hard I try!). It's no wonder that he's blowing up!

This gracious and humble man seems to finally be getting his Karma Cash-in! Wallace's art sales have been increasing steadily for some time, but when he had a small mention in a article we saw that as yet another sign that he was becoming a force to be reckoned with in the larger arts community. We decided that it was time for him to enter some major art events so we sent samples of his work to the Columbus Arts Festival for consideration for their Emerging Artist Program. Wallace was selected, and through that connection (and because he's awesome) he was recently interviewed by both 614 Magazine and WOSU's ArtZine (We love you, Cindy!). Wallace has been incredible throughout this entire process, and we're so excited to get to hang out with him all weekend at his booth at the Fest June 1-3. Stop by and meet Wallace and see what all the fuss is about!
