Art on Vine

My first show of the 2018 season… Sunday, January 14 at the Rhinegeist in OTR, about a block north of Findley Market. I’ll be selling my hand painted light switch covers, including this new design, ‘Big Red Flower’.

The event starts at noon and will go until 7 pm. The brewery is located at 1910 Elm St and is on the northernmost edge of the streetcar route.

2017 Holiday Shows

The holidays are approaching, and with it comes the opportunity to buy handmade items for Christmas gifts. My first show of the 2017 holiday season is the Sycamore High Craft Show Saturday, Nov. 18, 9 am to 4 pm, 7400 Cornell Rd 45242.

Then on the weekend of December 2, I have two shows: the Essex Studio Art Walk, an old favorite of mine (the first show I ever did), and a new one (for me); the Showcase of Arts at the Barn in Mariemont. The Essex is Friday and Saturday evenings, and the Showcase of Arts is Saturday and Sunday during the day. A huge thank you in advance to my husband who will be helping me with the challenge of running two shows back to back.

Fall is approaching…

… and with it comes the start of outdoor shows.  A list of my upcoming shows is at the end of this message.

For the first time in nearly two years, I have updated the prices of my hand-painted light switch covers. This is due to the fact that I refuse to skimp on quality just to increase sales.  In addition, some patterns take more time to create than others.  Thank you to those that have enjoyed and purchased my art as well as to my repeat customers.

I now have a two-tier price structure.  My hand-painted switch plates now start at $15 and deluxe plates start at $17. The $3 fee for each larger size has not changed.

So for the regular plates it’s $15 for singles, $18 for doubles, and $21 for triples. In the deluxe category it’s $17 for singles, $20 for doubles and $23 for triples. My Etsy site has been updated to reflect these new prices.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at my Fall shows.  If you can’t make it to a show or if you have a custom order please contact me through my website.

Trillium Art & Music Fair

Had a lovely time at the Trillium Art & Music Fair on Sunday. It was a hot day, but we had a spot in the shade, with cool breezes going thru. And I enjoyed the acoustic music from the stage area.

Most importantly, it was a great sales day, making this and the Madeira Art Fair from last month two of my best shows. My next show will be in September, at the Westwood Art Show. A big thank you to everyone who came out and checked out the music and art.

A colorful 2017…

p1070829-ce2016 ended up being my best year ever for art sales and fans of my art.  Thank you to all of those who have liked or purchased my work.

Spring 2017 is just around the corner.  The mild Cincinnati winter is leading to a warm and colorful Spring.

Coming up I have the Art On Vine show at Rhinegeist on Sunday February 19th from noon-7pm.  Looking at my future calendar, I might not have too many shows until April.  However, you can always check out and order my work on my website.
