Share with Me Saturdays - Apryl McAnerney

This week's Share with Me brings me to the Slap-N-Tickle Gallery in the Crossroads Arts District of KC. Apryl McAnerney is the owner, curator, and all around beautiful hostess of this space. I had visited the gallery for First Fridays events, but we finally met-met while she was creating plaster masks for a personal project back in 2012 (mine was one of 100 she's working toward). I've enjoyed her smile and her hair ever since.

My classy self post-mask session.

Q1: Hi! What's your favorite pizza topping?
Spinach, feta, garlic sauce, thin crust!

Q2: What project/business/profession are you sharing with me today?                            
Curating Galleries

Q3: How did you join this project/business? Did you create it, or get hired in, or....?
Fell into my lap, after everything else fell completely apart. Then I pushed it till it worked.

Q4: What's the most rewarding part of this project/business for you?
Seeing the look of absolute joy on an artist's face when their heart-felt creations are hung up professionally into a cohesive show on fresh walls!

Q5: What part of this project/business makes you want to throw things out of anger or frustration? Be vague if you have to. It's OK.
Artistic drama! Ugh!

Q6: Do you ever question if this is what you are supposed to be doing in life? Do you feel like you are on a good journey with your project/ least for now?
I am absolutely certain this is what I'm meant to do with my life right now, but I always question what other opportunities I might consider- everyone needs something to look forward to. Maybe my next goal is to move to the country and raise chickens!

Q7: Do you think you are getting any better at what you are doing? Does it matter?
Yes, and Yes. If you're not getting better at something every year than you're wasting your time and your life. Although, I really love to crochet and am not getting any better at all, nor do I care.. so I guess some things are motivational and others are just relaxing, and both are important.

Q8: What do you love most about existence right now? I mean this in the broadest sense possible. Or whatever sense you want to interpret that in, I don't care.                            
Of course you care, or you wouldn't ask:-) I love that my existence is finally focused on finding what brings me the most joy, and understanding that having boundaries and making money is a part of that joy. Being able to pay rent just gives you more freedom to spread the bliss!

Q9: How is that love reflected in your project/business?
When you love what you do it shows in your every endeavor and more love is attracted to you!

Q10: Where can we read more about you and what you do?

The Slap-n-Tickle's 7th Annual Erotica Art Show- This Feb First Fridays!!!

We will have our dabble session soon, so stay tuned to see what we learned from each other!
