Artist’s Garage Sale

 Tuesday News Day

Welcome to News Day Tuesday –  the day for jewelry updates and snippets of life

Upcoming Show – Sort Of

I am blessed to live in a  funky, artsy town.  An annual event here is called the Artist’s Garage Sale.  This is not your everyday art show!  It is an opportunity for area artists to destash unwanted art supplies and sell their less expensive artwork.  It’s a great event for people to pick up affordable art,jewelry, beads, art print cards, paints, canvases, fabric, yarn etc.  I will have a booth at the Artist’s Garage sale this Saturday.  I will be selling my jewelry, plus I’m destashing tons of beads at below cost.

Garage Sale Olympia, WA

 

The Facebook event page describes it this way:

Need art supplies? Searching for a great gift for yourself or a friend? Check out the artistic wares and whatnots of over 70 area artists! The Artists’ Garage Sale is a unique event that gives Olympia’s artists and art lovers the opportunity to meet, shop, and connect.

The event is just $1.  All proceeds benefit POSSCA’s mission to support the arts, including the Cultural Assistance Program for Students (CAPS) program which provides musical instruments to students who otherwise couldn’t participate in school music programs and annual arts scholarships for high school seniors pursuing a college arts education.  

Olympia Armory, 515 Eastside St SE, Olympia WA 98501

If you live in the Olympia area, I hope you’ll stop by, say “Hi” and support a good cause!

On Broadway

On Broadway

The Broadway Center For The Performing Arts is hosting a fundraising auction, in support of providing performing arts opportunities for young people, in Tacoma, WA.  The person in charge of the auction visited Catwalk Gallery, saw my work there and asked if I could contribute an item to the auction.

All proceeds from Star Chefs on Broadway support a stellar cause: The largest arts in education program in Washington State, serving 35,000 students and teachers per year. For most of these kids, the Broadway Center is their only arts experience of any kind. Many face a tough mix of economic need, cultural barriers, geographic and social isolation. No child is ever turned away because of the inability to pay. This year, with your help, we’ll raise more than $300,000 through silent and live auctions to help these kids access vital arts education programs, from school matinée performances to youth violence prevention programs, and from original touring shows celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. to year round classes and workshops.

 

Here’s the necklace that I designed for the Broadway Center’s auction.  The necklace features lampwork glass by Beads and Botanicals and Genea Beads, plus ceramic beads from Gaea.

Bunny Love

I was lucky enough to snag a bunny pendant from Nancy Schindler of  Round Rabbit Extra!  Nancy’s work is so sought after that the moment she posts something new, it sells out.  I just happened to be at the right place at the right time!

I love bunnies – not just at Easter –  but all year round.  Who can resist their so-soft fur, wiggly noses, and bunny ears?  Melt.  I had a German professor in college that had a pet bunny that was trained to use a kitty litter box.  So therefore the bunny didn’t need to be caged.  She just hopped all around his house.  I thought it was so cool!
