It’s almost time to go back to school and Little Bird de Papel has beautiful school supplies featuring my art. Check out this drawstring backpack. Look at how much it can hold. It’s available in 23 designs at http://etsy.me/2urxfDI.
Albuquerque artists and patrons look forward every month to ARTScrawlABQ‘s First Friday ARTScrawl (5-8 pm) and ARTful Saturday (third Saturday from 1-4 pm). While First Friday ARTScrawls are city-wide events. ARTful Saturdays highlight galleries in different parts of town each month, rotating among galleries in Old Town, Downtown, Nob HIll and the Northeast Heights.
ARTful Saturdays are a great opportunity for families to visit galleries in a concentrated area. Events include artist “meet and greets” and lectures and demonstrations. This month’s ARTful Saturday is July 15 and features galleries in the Northeast Heights. Two of the galleries are the Weyrich Gallery and Palette Contemporary Arts and Crafts.
Located at 2935D Louisiana Blvd NE, Weyrich Gallery’s exhibit “Water” features four Albuquerque area glass artists: Emily Brock, Doug Gillis, Sarah A Nelson and Marcia Newren, as well as pieces by recently deceased glass artist Jerry Barnett. Artists Talk 3:30 – 4:30 pm.
Weyrich also represents me for my handmade greeting cards, origami earrings and handmade boxes.
Located at 7400 Montgomery Suite 22, Palette presents “Birds of Paradise” featuring paintings and assemblages by Charlie Aldrich. Opening Reception with artist “meet and greet” 3:00 – 6:00 pm.
I hope to see you at the July 15th ARTful Saturday event. Information on ARTful Saturday is available at http://artscrawlabq.org/#artfulsaturday.
