October Art Exhibition & Sale

 

Join me on Sunday 10/25 here at 2:00pm eastern for a Facebook Live for an art exhibtition. I will be showing my recent artwork and sharing stories behind their creation. Feel free to join even if you have no plans to buy art. 

At 4:00pm, the exhibited artwork will go on sale in the online shop on my website. While I am not currently shipping products outside of the US from my shop due to the pandemic, I am shipping original art internationally. So everybody is welcome to purchase.

Have a peek below at some of the pieces I will be sharing.

PaperArtsy Maintenant en France

 

PaperArtsy has made the move from the UK to France and is now back up and running. Bigger & better than ever. That means that my empty shop shelves are now filled once again.

 

My collection of 24 mini stamps

 

 

 

New and restocked stamp sets

LOOKBOOK #1

Hello friends. Today I am happy to share my first and all new Lookbook.

NEW Release: PaperArtsy Stamps

New Release

 

Thrilled to share with you my newest release from PaperArtsy. This UK-based company has just moved to France and are about to reopen - even bigger and better. C'est vrai!

 

 

All three sets are deeply-etched, red rubber cling stamps. They are currently available for pre-order from many of your fcvorite craft destinations throughout the world. I have a small supply in my online shop shipping now. Once I run through those, I will also be taking pre-orders.

 

ESA16

 

Inspired by the events of 2020, this set includes my favorite stamp of the new release: the abstracted butterfly - which to me symbolizes transformation, metamorphosis, and change. I got some good grunge in this set too!

 

 

ESA17

 

This set is all about symbols. The designs were inspired by the magic of symbols. And mark making -- one of my very favorite activities.

 

 

ESA18

 

The final set in the trio was developed with the idea of making stamps that could both be used to create background detail and abstract focal points. Had to throw in the word believe too given my love of all-things-text.

 

 

Thanks for having a look-see. I cannot wait to see what you create with these beauties.

 

Jo Packham Art Sale

Thank you all. This sale is now over and I am pleased to say that every item sold.

 

Welcome to an art sale fundraiser to suport our friend and collegue Jo Packham. Jo is the mastermind behind such publications as Where Women Create, Where Women Cook, and several others. She is based in Ogden, Utah where she has a studio and event space. Don't know who Jo is? You can read a little bit about her here or get to know her through this podcast with Suzanne Redmond. In all her endeavors, over many years, she has been a promotor and uplifter of others. Now the time has come when we need to lift her up. 

 

 

The pandemic has impacted everybody and creatives are no exception. As a result of the subsequent economic downturn, Jo has had to shut down the publication of her magazines and is in the process of selling her studio/event space. Unless...we all rally and help her. Her longtime photographer Brooke Lark has started a gofundme page and 100% of the proceeds of this sale will be donated to that endeavor.

 

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

--The art sale is being held on Sunday, October 4 from 10:30am to 10:30pm Eastern.

--If you see an item you want to buy, leave a comment on this blog post with the artist's name and the word sold. If more than one person leaves a comment, the person whose comment appears first gets the item.

--I will monitor the page all day and when an item is sold, I will write the buyer's name in the body of the blog post.

--Once you see your name appear by the item you purchased (and not before please), head to the gofundme page and donate the exact amount listed for the item (or more if you are feeling extra generous). You need to include your name in the donation and cannot do it anonymously.

--Once you have donated, please forward the email receipt you received to me at shap97@gmail.com. Or you can send a screenshot of your donation to the same email address.

--I will connect you with the artist so that you can provide shipping information and complete the sale.

--Please note that if you live in the same country as the selling artist, shipping will be paid for by the seller. If however you live outside of their country, you will be required to cover postage and can work this out with the artist via email.

 

Thanks to the artists who donated their work, to those of you who have come to visit the sale, and to the individuals who have purchased art in support of Jo. And just a reminder that you are welcome to donate to the gofundme page even if you are not purchasing an item here.
