Copper Goodies for Art Walk

If you are going to the Surreal Expressions Opening at the SOAP Gallery on Champion Street in downtown Youngstown tomorrow night, be sure to stop by my table to see my latest creations: Copper Goodies… Odd shaped hooks, dangles and charms. All were made with copper wire,  except the napkin rings… they’re nickel silver.

Yes, I will be one of the Art Walk vendors set up outside. Hopefully the weather will cooperate so we can enjoy live music on the loading dock.

I will also bring small art and some buttons, but not the machine this month. I might bring a few pieces of jewelry, too.

I am seriously trying to reduce my inventory of buttons already made, so here are this month’s Art Walk specials:

  • Small pins, 25 cents each
  • Small magnets, 50 cents each, 3 for $1.00
  • Large pins,  $1.00 each
  • Special backs, $2.00 each, 3 for $5.00

Thanks for reading, hope to see you there!

TILT art WIP maybe done

This is the “Tilt” drawing started awhile back… taken to the emotion depths of grief. Faber Castell Polychromos on 140 lb. Canson paper, 9 x 12 inches.

It’s done… maybe… I had to walk away from it before dark pencils blackened the entire sky.

Photo is a quick cell phone snap… if you want to see it in person, odds are that I will take it to the SOAP Gallery’s First Friday Art Walk, 5 to 9 PM on Champion Street in downtown Youngstown on July 1, 2016.

Thanks for looking!

 

Street Vendor Girl

I was the lone vendor at the First Friday Art Walk by SOAP Gallery in downtown Youngstown last night. That’s okay… check out the Big Nasty (local jazz band) up on the loading dock behind me (photos snapped before the crowds arrived):

So, I was there at the entrance hawking handmade jewelry, buttons, and small art (mostly drawings matted 5×7 ready to frame) with my rolled onto site “itinerant retailer” set-up… so it’s not exactly proper for upscale art or craft shows that require “professional displays” in white tents and table covers that drop to the floor, &c… but, oh well… I’m more of a street vendor girl.

It was a good night… sold some jewelry, a few buttons, and a couple pieces of art while listening to a cool band play lively jazz on a beautiful night while “Celebrate Youngstown” opened in SOAP Gallery. It was a great night for doing a gallery hop or wandering around downtown as there were other openings and events at several different venues.

Hopefully, next month’s First Friday Art Walk will attract more vendors.

Well… I’m out of coffee, got to walk… thanks for reading!
