Yesterday, I helped MISSY hang up a new batch of CUT PAPER SILHOUETTES at the KRISTEN ASHLEY ARTIST SHOP in downtown Athens. She’s participating in a group show called ARTISTS FOR ANIMALS…lotsa great local Athens artists showing animal-themed pieces with a portion of all sales going to benefit an animal charity of their choosing. Missy is hoping to raise some money for the NORTH GEORGIA HOUSE RABBIT SOCIETY, in honor of our bunny Jumbles, who we adopted from them. The exhibit started TODAY and it runs until August, so if you’re in the area, please check it out if you get a chance! Awesome artists and worthy causes…and a well-curated collection of art and craft supplies!
Before we started hanging the frames on the wall, we figured out the layout on the ground while Kristen marked off our work space. Then, Missy used a ruler to measure out where to put the nails and where the edges of the frames should go:
After hanging Missy’s pieces, we did a bit of shopping. Of course we couldn’t walk out of Kristen’s store without buying something cool…I went with a pack of GRAPH PAPER POST-IT NOTES and POLKA DOT WASHI TAPE:
WEREWOLVES’ newest album, “WHAT KIND OF PET DEFINES YOU?” drops this coming weekend, but for the next couple of days you can pre-order the album and listen to a couple of tracks on the Werewolves’ Bandcamp page HERE. I am proud to have recorded trumpet on a handful of songs on this album and I believe this might very well be my favorite Werewolves release yet. I am especially fond of the track “A.H.F.P.”, which sits squarely in the part of the Venn diagram where Graceland-era PAUL SIMON and ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI overlap. The horn line sounds, ahem, especially tasty, in my humble opinion. But don’t take my word for it…you can listen for yrself HERE. There are even lyrics that you can read and sing along to as well. Poetry in motion. RIYL: The Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel, indie pop, folk-punk, folk-folk, or punk-punk. Yay for new music!
