Exhibition coming up

A couple of my works were accepted into the upcoming juried exhibition titled Sustainable Source.
Sustainable Source is a show hosted by Longwood University’s Art Department and the American Democracy Project and it features works that highlight the theme sustainability and the resourcefulness of international contemporary printmakers and papermakers.
The works accepted are one of my light boxes and a couple of my small booklets (above) from 2006. The show opens this friday Sept. 29th and closes Oct 24th.
I am also working on a couple of commissions right now, I was going post pictures of them in a couple of days.
I also have to mention a couple of printmaking resources I ran into this week. One of them is another blog, Dean Clark's printmaking blog. He works for the Graphic Chemical company, and has updates on new materials coming out, conferences and other neat things related to printmaking.
Another website, Archival Methods, is a store that sells archival supplies-boxes, interleaving etc. They have very reasonable prices, and right now you can receive 15% off on your purchases. *CODE # 12066 for 15% off your next order*.(Valid until 12/31/2008)
Lastly a nontoxic printmaking website, with a lot of helpful information can be found at http://www.nontoxicprint.com/.

Junk in da Trunk Indie Craft show

Yeah! I was at a cool little art & craft fair organized by the Desotorow Gallery in Savannah this weekend. The weather was hot and humid, but that did not hinder people from showing up. It was so much fun. I am thankful for all the people who supported my work and purchased some prints. My little hedgehog print was popular - I'll post a picture of it finally. I made friends with Christi, Jeff and Doris, my nextbooth neighbors. Christi makes awesome jewelry and is co-owner of a great new gallery in Savannah called Kobo Gallery. Their store can be found at 33 Barnard St. in Savannah.

Here are some other pictures from the fair, first a photo of the street with people setting up friday afternoon, and then a photo of my little table. I also had a couple of boxes on the ground with prints and other handmade things in them. Good times, good times...
