The Artisan’s Summer Art Sale

This was my first time to be invited to participate in The Artisan’s Summer Invitational Art Sale held on Saturday, June 5, 2010 in Alta Loma, CA. The show was at the gardens of Beverly Maloof who was a gracious host. During the one-day art sale 170 people took the tour of the Maloof Historic Residence Museum in two hours! A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of art work benefited the Maloof Foundation. The residential Maloof home is my backdrop! Pine trees were around the porch. The garden path lead to my spot!

I tried to create a colorful and welcoming space. My newest items were collage scarves and poetry Zines. At first people seemed hesitant to enter the space, but that changed later as I tried to be welcoming. My art work needs to be seen close-up to see the embellishments, drawn elements and to read the poems. It was fun watching people try on the scarves. Usually my fiber art hangs on a wall.

Friends were generous to lend me stands and racks. Preparing for a show like this takes a lot of work because you are basically creating a room and filling it with art. The reward is having people understand and get excited about the art work. I enjoyed meeting new artists, the beautiful surroundings, friends stopping by and making new friends.
