The founders of Start Shows met at the art drop off for Septemberfest Art exhibition at One Art Space Gallery, in TriBeca NYC in September 2018. Sophocles Plokamakis an NYC artist, published illustrator and author, was curating the show and Thais Coelho Plokamakis was one of the featured Artists, a painter from Brazil. After 5 more shows at One Art Space, Thais and Sophocles formed Start Shows, a company that creates art exhibitions for artists from around the World in NYC Galleries. Since then Thais and Sophocles have helped 300+ artists exhibit and sell their art in New York Galleries and network with collectors, curators and fellow artists of many disciplines while keeping 100% of the money earned from sales of their art. Thais and Sophocles are Art teachers having taught artists of all ages how to draw and paint for many years. They are also Art Coaches and can help you become a full time artist and take your art game to the next level.
