My art booth using my new homemade posts for hanging framed artwork
Friday night Dec 3 I was an art vendor at “I made It for the Holidays” at Southside Works right next to REI. My niece Frances flew in from Portland, OR and was a MAJOR help to me as well as her dear friend Meghan Olson. Meghan was premiering her new venture Clothespin Press at “I Made It”.
Fortunately we were set up opposite each other. Meghan and her husband Darren Olson and their three young children moved here from Portland while he pursues his MBA at CMU. Megan then moved a printing press right into their rented house and is making some very cool etchings and cards (and much more).
Meghan, Frances and I got everything set up early and went around the corner before I made for the Holidays started- to get some food and wine before the event began. We did get food I promise! This pic seems to only show Frances and Meghan and our wine glasses.
The first weekend of December 2010 = BUSY!! Not only this event but the next day I was a vendor at Chatham University Alumni Holiday Artisans Festival. With my spiffy new website coupled with actual business cards and a brochure, people can find me later! Finally some identity emerges from the fog!
Having some fantastic, super recent publicity for my artwork also helps:
