At long last – some photos from the SPRING SHOWCASE at the KRISTEN ASHLEY ARTIST SHOP, here in Athens, Georgia. The exhibition was up from mid-April to mid-June and I’m only now getting around to posting photos from the installation to the opening event…
MISSY used her allotted wall space by painting a cloudy sky inhabited by LITTLE PLUSH FLUFFY CLOUDS, with a FABRIC KITE flown over a HAPPY LITTLE MOUNTAIN RANGE by a CUTE GREEN BUNNY. Oh, and she made a bowl-full of ONE-INCH BUTTONS to boot:
TONIGHT is the SPRING SHOWCASE at the KRISTEN ASHLEY ARTIST SHOP in downtown Athens, Georgia and Missy has an “ART INSTALLATION” in this exhibit, along with a handful of fellow local Athens artists, making for an eclectic mix. Come see some wonderful art, have some snacks, and hobnob with some fun and friendly folks! Come say hi! The event is FREE and starts at 7pm (we’ll be there around 7:30). The K.A. Artist Shop is downtown on Jackson St., right above the Pita Pit…for more information, click on their Facebook event page HERE. Hope to see you there!
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:
