Jennifer Nelson Artists Does The Impossible, Appearing In Two Places At The Same Time

JNA Will Be Exhibiting At Both Blue Print 3 + SURTEX in May 2016 In NYC


Boston, MA. March 14, 2016:  Artist’s agent and entrepreneur, Jennifer Nelson will be exhibiting at the upcoming Blue Print 3 show in NYC on May 12th to 16th, and SURTEX on May 15th to 17th, 2016. 

“We love going to trade shows,” says Jennifer Nelson, “and both of these events are very important to us.” Rather than make the difficult choice between two shows, Jennifer has decided to exhibit at both. “It will be frantic but fun!”

Representing Jennifer Nelson Artists to an international audience, Jennifer will share the latest work of the company’s 6 in-demand illustrators: Anisa Makhoul, Bee Brown, Jennifer Orkin-Lewis (August Wren), Jessica Swift, Jill Howarth, Jill McDonald and Lauren Lowen.

Given that Blue Print and SURTEX overlap by two days, the agency is going with a bold plan. “I will be at Blue Print the first 3 days, then move myself and all the prints to SURTEX on May 15th.” Jill McDonald’s husband Antonio will be holding down the fort at the Blue Print booth the remaining two days.

“Exhibiting at these shows is often the only time I get to meet clients face-to-face,” said Jennifer Nelson from the JNA office in the Boston area. “Most of our business is conducted by phone, email and Skype so these events are social occasions for us, as well as serious business. I hate to miss one.”

JNA’s artists create lovely artwork which is then licensed to manufacturers primarily for surface design. Ordinary household objects become beautiful decorative art pieces when adorned by these visually stunning illustrations. JNA specializes in a quirky, hand-made, and feminine look that is popular on all sorts of goods from suitcases to tabletop to holiday cards. Our philosophy is “Anything can be made more beautiful while still being functional. Why not get more art into your life?” 

“We look forward to seeing our customers, and to making new friends with artists, other agencies and potential clients.” To arrange a meeting with Jennifer, attendees should make an appointment, as her time is limited at these busy shows.

Jennifer Nelson Artists has been going at full speed every day since their launch in January, 2015. In just over one year nearly 500 individual deals have been made with manufacturers and licensors.

Jennifer Nelson Artists is a Boston-based illustration agency representing talented artists whose work is available for licensing as well as commissions. JNA can be reached at (781) 643-2002, on Instagram or by email.
