SCENES FROM THE SPRING SHOWCASE (FINALLY!)

SPRING 0207

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:

Artists For Animals

KA 3789

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:
