SO many things going on. First and foremost let me apologize to everyone I owe a hello or an email to! I am so behind, and have been working nonstop. Let me break it down.
The Silent Stair opening was a blast! We had an excellent turnout, thank you to everyone who came out. I hope you took some bananas..and I hope you liked the art too. This is GreenLion's last show, so make sure you stop in to see the space before it comes down. Here's a couple of images from the opening for those of you who we didn't see there.
This is Perry and I finishing up the walls the day before the opening.
Packed to the brim. What a great turnout!
I love this picture of Perry. She's the one in white. So purdy.
And these are some cool dudes (who also are great artists) who are standing on the opposite side of the gallery, where Steve and Adam Close were showing as well.
This is the man with the plan.
So..Thank you again, I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.
If you couldn't make it that weekend but would still like to see the show, it will be up until Dec 10, and the gallery is open on the weekends. This weekend, the 2nd and 3rd would be a perfect time to stop in...while your on your way to or from the UICA Holiday Market (where I will be selling work) or the Holly Jolly, which is another festivity going on downtown.
And that does, I suppose, naturally bring us into talking about the Holiday Artists Market, or HAM as it's unpleasantly put...at the UICA! All of the artists met tonight to see their booth spaces in the new facility, and it really got me pumped. Usually it's snowing by now and since it's not, it's hard to get all Christmassy. There's over 50 amazing artists there selling paintings, jewely, home goodies, prints..and tons more.
This year I will have, of course, the Little Fridge Friend Collection, greeting cards, ornaments, paintings, and a new little project I have been busy creating: Little Coloring Friends. I will be selling loose coloring sheets for those of you who want to revisit the joys of coloring we all had as children. Here's a sneak peak of one of the pages.
Other exciting news for the UICA Market: Jennifer from CraftSanity and I will be debuting out Paperdoll Print Collections! She unfortunately won't be there with me, as she will be attending another sale in Detroit, but we will be debuting them in spirit together! These pups are limited editions, thats right! Only 50 will be made.
The Paperdoll Prints come from the last four issues of CraftSanity Magazine, which began last winter with Priare, the girl who loved to sew. Follwing her, were Celia, Lucy and Charlie. The Print Collection is available as an 8x8" set, and is printed on archival paper. Jennifer took a snapshot of the proofs..they are so close to being ready!
And...I think that's all I can muster up, as I sit now at 2 am in the morning on a cold kitchen floor, to a faceless and perhaps non-existent audience. If you're out there, I hope you are staying warm!
