thank you SO SO much to everyone who came out for this past weekend’s Art for the Cash Poor 12 at the Crane Arts building in NoLibs! this was my best show to date and i’m very excited for what the rest of the year will bring 🙂 if you didn’t get to come out, i thought i’d share some photos from the weekend and of the work of some talented artists i got to meet! on the second day, this great organization called Rock to the Future performed for attendees- the nonprofit provides free music lessons to young adults in Philadelphia. they played some adorable renditions of bands like Muse and Blink 182:
on both days, there were delicious food trucks everywhere. i got to chow down on some food from Guapos Tacos and indulge in these fantastic cupcakes from Jimmies Cupcake Truck! holy moly deliciousness.
i got to bring home these super ornate hummingbird giclee prints by mixed media artist Ilene Perlman– thanks so much for the swap!
this necklace is a photo of an adorable little house courtesy of the very talented Michelle Ciarlo-Hayes– she sells whimsical digital photographs and reproductions of polaroids in all sorts of forms- prints, necklaces, etc.
every year, i pick up a business card from this girl- this was the year i finally got one of her necklaces! a beautiful piece by photographer and digital artist Jen McCleary.
my table was across from Gretchen Miller, the designer for Dahling Accessories and i spent both days drooling over this bright and beautiful bag . . . so i went for it. i absolutely adore it 🙂 check out her shop for an assortment of well crafted purses and clutches.
not pictured is a matted photograph courtesy of Caterina Giordano, a super talented photographer and very friendly gal. i LOVE the colorful print from one of her journeys to Italy- but you have to click the link to find it.
thanks so much for stopping in! Art for the Cash Poor 12 concluded my spring/summer craft circuit in Philadelphia . . . I have one more show left called Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair in Jersey City on June 25th. after that, i’ll be back in the studio working hard on new prints and display fixtures for my table for the fall and holiday craft shows! also, i’m in the process of developing a groupon-esque deal with the website Heartsy– hopefully it will work out! and if it does, i will post info about it here and on my TWITTER (i’ve decided i don’t want to go the newsletter route just yet- if you want to be up to date, follow me on twitter or like me on Facebook :).
