I had the most amazing time at this past weekend’s Art Fair on the Square. We had a steady stream of people coming through the tent all day long, and it was so much fun to meet so many new people! I did three demos throughout the day and loved sharing my process with those who hung out with me during those times! I had lots of sales and my cheeks hurt from smiling all day. It was a LOT of work, but SO worth it. I am feeling so overwhelmed with gratitude!!
This was the biggest one that sold at the fair, and went to a couple who were having a hard time deciding on a piece, and ended up compromising and both getting something they loved!
I am feverishly working to get everything ready for the BIG event THIS Saturday!! And it looks like the weather is forecasted to be AMAZING for Art Fair on the Square!!! Also, I just got my booth assignment and am super excited to have a corner booth near the HCAA tents! Check out the map below to see where you will be able to find me!
Also, I will be offering LIVE demos at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. I have most of my signage ready to go!! This is getting REAL!! And I am excited to meet new people and have a good time!
Two weeks from today (on Saturday, August 3rd), I will be setting up my very first art fair booth! I am SO excited about this opportunity and I can’t wait to share my new work with everyone! I will also be doing live demos throughout the day. Please stop by and see my FUN, colorful space!!
I have been juried into my very first ART FAIR!! The ART FAIR ON THE SQUARE will be held on Saturday, August 3rd, in downtown Noblesville! I am SUPER excited and also quite nervous about this endeavor!! But I have enjoyed daydreaming about decorating my booth space and collecting all of the necessary materials to pull it off. This has been quite an investment (both time and money), and I am just praying to get at least a little return on the investment at this first show! And hopefully, this will be the first of many!!
Below is a sneak peek at what my booth may look like. I set this up last week in my family room. It won’t look identical to this, but will be close. It is going to be a splash of sunshine and color! And I will have pieces ranging in price from $15 for small prints to $600 for the largest original. Everything will be marked down as a first time fair special!! Something for everyone!! 🙂
There will also be a drawing for a FREE matted fine art print of the winner’s choice! So be sure to stop by and check it out!!
I have been SO busy this year creating a variety of abstract landscape paintings. I have mostly been working in soft pastels, and have been LOVING this medium! Here are a few examples of recent work that is available and will be hanging at the show:
It’s that time of the month again…FIRST FRIDAY is THIS week! I have work hanging in FOUR separate places this month! If you stop by the Fisher’s Library, be sure to check out the Origin Stories exhibit at IGNITE studio (that exhibit will run through the end of September). I also have a piece hanging at Fishers City Hall this month, with many of my fellow HCAA Artists. Beautiful work both upstairs and in the main lobby!
THIS Friday, July 5th, I will be at the HCAA Birdie Gallery for their “All Our Best” exhibit and awards ceremony. They are giving awards at 7pm. Once that concludes, we will head over to Nickel Plate Arts (less than a mile away) for their “Weird and Wonderful” exhibit. I haven’t had a chance to see any of the other pieces in that one, but based on the theme, expect a lot of weirdness. Haha!
So if you are free THIS Friday, please come hang out with us and see some beautiful artwork and enjoy some free food (and live music at Nickel Plate)!!
I am excited about this week’s artist reception at IGNITE studio in Fishers! This is the first reception they have held, and we are hoping for a great turnout! I have four small pieces displayed and I also look forward to seeing (and reading about) the other pieces in this “Origin Stories” exhibit. If you happen to be free this Thursday evening, come on out to the reception!! (The pieces will all be up until September, if you don’t get a chance to see them this week.)
I am excited to share about THREE different exhibits that are beginning this month!
The Hamilton County Artists Association is holding its annual “All Our Best” exhibit, where patrons get to vote on their favorite pieces. Judges will be brought in to award prizes in multiple categories. We had the option to submit three smaller pieces or one HUGE piece. I opted for one BIG one, and was tickled to find that it made it as one of the featured images for the association newsletter! You’ll have to come see it in person to see how bit it is and how it looks in it’s black and gold frame!! THIS FRIDAY from 6:30-8:30 is the opening reception, and there will be free refreshments, as well as three different artists offering demonstrations during the reception. Would LOVE to see you there!
EDITED to add address of Birdie Gallery: 195 S 5th St, Noblesville, IN 46060
I will also have three pieces hanging at the Nickel Plate Gallery in downtown Noblesville for their “Just Dance” exhibit this month. These are also some of my favorite pieces and will certainly be a fun exhibit to see, along with some live music and refreshments THIS Friday evening!
I have another exciting opportunity to share about, but that exhibit doesn’t open until the end of the month, so I will share that information in another post!!
