I am very busy getting ready for my first solo art show. We hang the pieces on July 29th, which is coming so soon! I have so many fun ideas for projects for this show and beyond.
I kept thinking about designing a postcard or business card for the show and in the end I decided to do things a little bit against the usual grain.
For one thing, instead of paper postcards I am hanging a poster that encourages people to photograph it and share it on social media. Saves paper, saves landfills, and it is nearly free. I might add a QR code too, although I don’t know if anyone uses those (you know the bar codes for smart phones to read).
Below is a rough draft of the poster:
I still wanted to send people home with something special so I created mini quilts for the first 40 visitors to the artist reception. The reception is Thursday July 30 , 2015, 6:30-8:00 PM at the Black Birch Vineyard in Southampton MA. I hope you can attend!
I made these mini quilts from the scraps of many of the projects in the show. I signed my name to each and every one of them with thread (free-motion quilting).
