Ang Art Update

Hi faithful blog readers! Here's some recent Ang art news:
Etsy update: In the shadow of economic woes, many Etsy artisans are facing low or no sales. We continue to help promote each other’s work, and buy handmade whenever we can. I have completed a few custom jobs and trades recently, which have been very rewarding.

Thanks to Jillian Spencer at Eternal Images for calling out my Green Elephant Buddy mini-sculpture on her blog recently. Jillian has made some art objects that really capture my fancy as well… these green worm earrings call to my love of bright and creamy looking colors as well of my love of squirmy creatures and jewelry with eyes.

OK, now for local news! The Arts League is hippin’ and hoppin’. As you probably can imagine, the economy is making it even harder for non-profits like this to do their thing. So we volunteers keep plugging away. I continue to help with Exhibitions primarily. I have made it a goal to enter at least one piece in every show we hang. This is a challenge, as most of our shows are themed. However, I entered two pieces in the December/January Black and White show, one of which sold! Also, due to the encouragement of friends, I entered one photo in February’s Annual Photo Show. It’s a framed 8”x10” featuring the tall ship Kalmar Nickel and Ol’ Glory. I’m working on publicity for the March show “About Face” (Faces, masks, etc.) and hoping to get a piece ready in time for the deadline next week.

Most amazing about the League are the friends I have made, and following their work over the past few years. I have been meaning to do blog write-ups on a few of them. For now, to wet your whistle… be sure to check out Lois Kuck and Emily Kalwaitis and I’ll say more about them when I get a chance!

Last year, making small jewelry and sculpture and setting up an etsy shop was fun and a great learning process. I will continue to keep small affordable art items and jewelry in my shop on etsy. I recently put note cards in the gallery for sale. I hope to soon make the cards and other items available over the internet via zazzle.com. (think t-shirts!) However, this year, my main focus where my art is concerned is this….I would like to paint and draw and focus on getting work into galleries.
