So, I’m not really ready to be think-y about Branding yet; I’m still trying to figure out what it means for me specifically and what it will look like in practice. I could totally parse it out here, but I really don’t want to subject y’all to that sort of babble–and it totally would be disconnected babble!–so, instead, owls!
Fungoid owlets, to be specific.
And my Fourth Quarter exhibit at the ARTgarage.
And, an Art Reception at IQ’s!
So, I’m going to begin at the end and work back through to the beginning. Cause I’m tired. And it makes sense in my head. Have I mentioned I’m tired?
The Fall Art Reception and Open Mic at IQ’s in Green Bay. It’s totally a Heather Peterman gig, but she totally shares her stage with other artists. She invited me to come and play with everyone else–to the point I’m on the flyer. *hands* Heather is totally awesome and makes beautiful art and bags (I have one; it’s my favorite bag!).
Actually, she had invited me to participate in the last Art Reception, but I wasn’t feeling ready to be out with my art and
potentially not sell anything sell my art. <–Have I mentioned that I have raging insecurity? And a height-related inferiority complex? *whistles*
So, yeah, come out to IQ’s on Saturday and see a bunch of fantastic art–maybe even buy a few things–and listen to a lot of good music. The Fall Art Reception coincides with an Open Mic. We might even get The Husband up there to play!
*and we segue over to here in a non-awkward self-aware fashion because I don’t have a good transitional idea right now*
Sometimes, ya really just have to go for the obvious transitions, ya know?
I finished putting up my Fourth Quarter Exhibit at the ARTgarage. Here are some pictures.
From left to right: unnamed friends: AT-AT ($140), unnamed friends: sheepapillar ($150), and unnamed friends: twitter-tail ($130).
Still talking about the framed pieces, from left to right: unnamed friends: squid attacked by bird-blob ($150) and unnamed friends: uni ($130).
Sculptures, from left to right: unnamed owlets: fungoid owlets (1-3/100; small owlets $65, medium owlets $85), unnamed friends: from the 100 acre wood ($1200), and unnamed friends: fungoid owlets (5-7/100; small owlet $65, medium owlet $85, large owlet $120).
The unnamed friends: fungoid owlet artist doll edition is going well. I’ve already sold one–mind, it was sold to Miss ‘Lain, and she always buys my stuff. She’s my own personal patron.
Here are the little buggers (in close-up!) so far:
This little guy was #4 in the edition.
And, I have 10 more owlet carcasses waiting to be stuffed for Saturday.
Have I mentioned that I really like not being afraid of my sewing machine anymore?
So, here’s the currently updated calendar:
Story Beads: Beading to Heal–September 30th $30.00
The ARTgarage has a class cooperative with St. Vinny’s, and this class is being offered through that program. This class is also totally based upon one that I took with Lisa Kay a couple of years ago. She’s totally as awesome as you’d think she’d be winning a Fulbright. Share the love!
So, I had one person signed up for this class, but we had such a good time, I think! Definitely going to see about doing this again in the Spring–maybe as more of a series of “come and learn; come back to hang out and work together!”
“Visualizing Your Hopes and Dreams”: An Art Night for Freedom House–October 3rd, 6-8 pm
It’s basically an art class being taught for the families that Freedom House helps out.
Kelly and I had about 10 people (though 2 were too small to do more than run around) plus Freedom House’s coordinator-lady Robyn (who is totally awesome). We all had a good time, one student tried drawing for the first time in her life, and I made a new friend.
Studio Tour–October 7th, 12-6 at the ARTgarage
It’s really Chris Style’s studio tour, but all the ARTgarage studio artists were invited to join the fun. This tour happens the 8th and 9th also, but I’m only going to be there the 7th and the 9th.
Bay Area Watercolor Artists Opening–October 7th, 5-8 at the ARTgarage
Not necessarily my art scene, but ya know, I’m still gonna be supportive!
IQ’s Fall Art Reception–October 8th
3-8 pm at IQ’s Bar 2105 University Ave., Green Bay
Studio Tour–October 9th, 12-5 at the ARTgarage
Same sitch, different day.
4th Quarter Artists Opening Reception AND the first Artists’ Demo-ing Night (hip name yet to be chosen)–October 13th
5-8 pm at the ARTgarage. The Artists’ Demo-ing Night is something new that we’re trying, so if you’re an artist in the Green Bay area, come to Demo Night! We all aren’t ARTgarage artists either, and we’re willing to share our windfall awesomeness!
Japanese Stab Binding: Books to Heal–October 14th $30.00
Also, a St. Vinny’s class.
Artist Books: A Bookmaking Workshop–November 11th-12th $150.00
Bookmaking techniques and artist books! \o/
Artists’ Demo-ing Night–November 17th
Same sitch (yes, I did use “sitch”) as the other one.
Artist Dolls–November 18th-19th $150.00
Really, this is ‘Lain’s gig; I’m just co-teaching.
Black Friday Mixed Media for Kids Class–November 25th
Co-taught with the fabulous Miss Carrie. Bring your kids
to be babysatto learn about and make mixed media art while you get some peace and quietsome Yule/Christmas/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Saturnalia/insert-your-holy-day-here shopping done.
Artists’ Demo-ing Night (I really hope we come up with a better title soon.)–Decemeber 15th, 5-8 pm
This Demo Night happens during the ARTgarage’s annual Holiday Sale/Show, so it’s a double header.
Miss ‘Lain is also teaching a couple of other classes that I’m kinda helping out with (Mostly so that I can take the class without paying for it! Don’t tell!).
Circuit Bending 101–October 28th $60.00
Puppetry–December 2nd and 9th $150
So, that about covers everything…okay, probably not, but it’s all I’ve got right now.
