Meet Your Maker indie art/craft monthly show was last night from 5-8. The new location in the Broadway wine bar was great! Big windows to bee seen from outside, actual spotlights on our tables inside (!!!), a wine bar crowd, downtown AND during the first Friday Artwalk. Nice. As always, I'm happy to see artist friends and meet new ones.
Here's my new display. Max made this clothesline rack for me, and each cozy is labeled on the pin holding it. I put clips on the very top for whatever I wish to display. It's very different from my previous "coffee bar" display. I kinda missed that part, but wanted to really get my work vertical. And the wee dish of coffee beans did not impart the same aromatic impact as the whole coffee bar full of beads does. See all the wrist cozies?
Other vendors kept saying, "Nice rack!!!" I'd blush and gush, "Yea and it only cost me $15. Other girls have to pay $5000!"
Me sittin by my booth.....
See this blue guy? He's my actual Bliss Monkey. He hangs out in my studio as one of my muses. I found out at the show, I don't want people to touch him!! How would I know that ahead of time? Every time a kid came up, they wanted to touch him, pose him, arrange him. I was really uncomfortable with that. I thought I'd bring him in to show how much he LOVES the coffee cozies I made, esp the sock monkey one. The best I could say is, "Hey hon, you better leave him just as he is, my six year old spent a lot of time getting his pose JUST RIGHT". :-)
When it wasn't busy, I walked around with the camera. I always wish I had more photos of live events.......
Antennae Art's confident look. Her work is bold and unique! I got to model a gorgeous and large silver torc style necklace most the night.
This artist is Marlis. Sorry to notice only now that my flash obliterated her art. Perhaps you can click on the photo and see the tattoo she has of her own art! I love it.
I loved the Iconic art at the back of the wine bar there.......
A great night, lots of visitors, fun products and vendors, glad to be there, and wish I sold a bit more. The wrist cozies were going well but people didn't seem to think they needed to have the coffee cozies. I can't imagine!!!!
