Art Nouveau Brought Good Fortune for the Chinese New Year to Respectable Street

Within minutes of walking into Respectable Street last night, a red envelope was placed in our hands with no explanation. The mysterious exchange became less so when we recognized the bestower of the traditional Chinese good-luck gift as none other than Art Nouveau creator and curator of events Teresa Korber

In our experience covering Art Nouveau's numerous shows, we've found them to be well-attended, whimsical, and filled with local artists who are working the grind. Most of them have day jobs while they make an honest attempt at living the artist's dream. After all, creating money is still creating. Creating money from what you love could be defined as success.

Last night's event was no different from the others we've attended. The focus on good fortune for artists and attendees was expressed via the Chinese New Year theme.
