Yeah, I’m completely floored, but the fact is that this year I will be a part of this amazing experience. This art/craft show is filled to the brim with some of the best artists and crafters in the area, and I’ll be there with them. I can’t overstate how happy I am.
Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752170168174181/
The basics, this is a big art and jewelry/craft sale on December 13th, going on from 10am to 4pm at the Wired Coffee House, RAIN OR SHINE. There’s going to be an immense amount of talent here and I will be bringing my best game, including some new art.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and most of all FREAKIN’ AWESOME presents for pretty much anyone in your life. The prices are always nuts too (me and a lot of my buds here practically give our art away, it’s crazy) so this is a holiday shopping event not to be missed on any level.
Come on down to the Ahh Spa, 600 North Weinbach, tomorrow October 4rth from 6pm to 9pm to snap up some fantastic scary and morbid art, jewelry and other treats and goodies! At least 20% of all sales go to benefit PAAWS Animal Rescue, and some artists do more! The lovely piece above is by Jamie Gish-Bates of Silent Salvation Jewelry and Watches.
Here’s the Night Gallery event page where you can see awesome art and cute Voodoo Babiez plushies that people will be bringing, and more! I’ll be bringing a fistful of new morbid and creepy art prints, so be warned.
From the adorable “pot o rocks” and cute sock critters to block prints and leather masks, Art in the Wild featured a whole gamut of creative beauty. Many of these artists and crafters will be at the Earth Day Art Crawl and I’m doing my best to get even more there! In the meantime, feel free to drool over these beautiful examples of local art:
Individual shots of the mandala, necklaces and flower print are the pieces I went home with. Sorry, you can’t have ’em! =D (Incidentally the cute white, pink and blue crocheted surface these items are resting on was created by my friend Jenny of Jenny’s Unique Crochet! It’s actually my favorite hat.)
