*Huge* craft garage sale Saturday, June 13th plus Copic Classes

craftgaragesale

Do you have a love for all things crafty?  And are you a fan of great deals?  If so – you won’t want to miss out on this weekend’s craft garage sale taking place at the Jaycee Arts Center in Irving starting at noon.

What started out as a side table after my next Copic Club class has turned into *14 BOXES* of crafty goodness.  Yup – you read that right…  14 full boxes!  That means literally HUNDREDS of rubber stamps, clear stamps, paper, inks, ephemera, punches, tools, and other crafty  treasures at a mere fraction of their original cost.  I’ll have a box of freebies as well.

Why am I sharing all this crafty goodness with you?  I’m paring down my existing collection (affectionately called a “Michael’s store” by my friends) to make room for visiting relatives and a few new hobbies.  ;)  My limited space is your gain!

So here’s how it will work.  I will be teaching the DFW Copic Club class from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday morning (June 13th).  I’ll be shutting down the classroom from 11:30-12:00 to get supplies unloaded and will re-open the small gallery room right around noon for shopping.  The sale will go until 3 p.m. I hope you can swing by, say hello, and pick up a treasure or two!  Feel free to forward this message to any of your crafty friends that might also like to come by.

Accepted Forms of Payment:
Cash and personal checks.

Location:
Jaycee Arts Center
1975 Puritan Dr., Irving, TX 75061
(near Story Road and 183)
We’ll be in the small gallery room to the left as you enter the front door.

Oh – and just in case anyone is interested…I have just *one* spot left in Saturday’s Copic Club class.  We’ll be practicing feathering two different color families together while making the below yummy cupcake card.  (Anyone hungry yet?)  ;)

copiccard

If you have attended Copic 101 and want to join in the club fun this month, please respond to this e-mail.  Open spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.  The class fee is $25.  Additional registration details can be found below.

Holiday Presence 10 opens Dec. 4 at Kettle Art

Holiday_Presence_10

Kettle Art proudly presents our tenth annual holiday gift show “Holiday Presence 10”, opening on Thursday, December 4, 7:00-10:00pm. This exhibit will run through Wednesday, December 24, and will feature small works and unique, artisan-crafted gifts made exclusively by local artists, including Richard Ross, Judith Lea Perkins, Brad Albright, Emily Hawkins, Clint Scism, Megan Petasky, Clay Stinnett, Michael Francis, Jody Pham, Cabe Booth, Corey Godfrey, Richard Andrew Sharum, Justin Clumpner, Larry Carey, Patricia Rodriguez, Nick Glenn, and more, with most pieces under $100.00. In light of the holiday season, all pieces are ‘cash (or charge!) & carry’.

Expect to see plenty of special announcements posted, such as artists on hand doing ‘artsy things’, updates on new items, impromptu parties, and extended hours throughout this exhibit. Be sure to stay ‘in the know’ by checking in often on our facebook event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/497250047084912/?ref=ts&fref=ts

Kettle Art began its mission in 2005, a year that also introduced Art Conspiracy and The Lollipop Shoppe. There must have been something in the air that year as these three preeminent showcases all evolved into forces to be reckoned with. From the very beginning, Kettle has maintained two overall objectives: to offer local creatives a place to exhibit; and to rejuvenate the artistic roots in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Throughout the years, we have hosted over 140 exhibitions, in various media, featuring only North Texas artists. This averages out to one show every three weeks, with over $200,000.00 going directly into the pockets of local artists.

Join us during “Holiday Presence 10” as we enter our tenth year of celebrating the amazing local artists who make our art scene one of the most vibrant in the country!

The Art of Nature

Ann Neal
Recent Artwork by Silvia Thornton and Anne Neal

Through January 31, 2015

Presented at the White Rock Lake Museum (located inside the Bath House Cultural Center) during the Art Mart

The White Rock Lake Museum presents The Art of Nature, a mixed media art exhibition that features recent works by Silvia Thornton and Anne Neal. The exhibition pays homage to nature by exploring organic forms and processes selected by the two artists to create their works of art.

Brookhaven Spring Student Art Show May 6 & 7

SAM_1413sm

Something fabulous is going on at Brookhaven College!

The energy is palpable – the music is blasting in the sculpture courtyard while sparks fly from metal, pottery wheels whirl in clay, waxes are finely carved and cast in jewelry, blocks are inked in printmaking, and students stand for hours before their easels, absorbed with color, light and shadow in drawing and painting studios.

The Art Kids are crazybusy gearing up for their Spring Student Art Show and Fundraiser! The Last One of the year!

And when I say “Kids”, I mean students ranging in age from 17 to 75!

 

The Particulars:

When: Tuesday, May 6th and Wednesday, May 7th, Dec 5th, 9am-6pm both days.

Where: Lobby of “S” building (Student Services building), Brookhaven College campus

3939 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch ,Texas.

 

Featuring: handmade jewelry, potter’s wheel thrown and handbuilt ceramics, printmaking, photography, painting, drawing and sculpture.

How shoppers can pay: cash or check.

Free admission with plenty of free parking

 

Why You (and everyone else) Should Shop At Our Show:

Everything is hand made by Brookhaven art students in their studio classes.

This is a sale of art and fine craft by budding artists passionate about their work, developing their own voice,

as well as experienced artists who have taken classes for years striving to refine their work.


This is an excellent opportunity for the public to buy exceptional and unusual handmade fine craft and art at very reasonable prices!

 

Who The Fundraiser Benefits:

Brookhaven’s Student Art Club – 20% of sales goes to scholarships, and to bring artists to campus for workshops/demos.

 

The Students’s Goal:

To have their work shown to the public, to earn monies for summer class and art supplies

(canvas, stretchers, paint, metal- materials for class are expensive).

 

So Don’t Be Tardy For The Party!

The tables will be piled high with treasures.

Have an Individualist to buy a gift for? Love to wear or decorate your home with unique, beautiful or funky finds?

I’ll be there with you, lining up, eagerly waiting for the doors to open!

Let’s ring in the Jingle Bash together

The Bash happens 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.Saturday, November 23 at the Shops at Park Lane. The Jingle Bash is a juried, handmade only show.

Since 2007, Etsy Dallas (an independent local craft collective run by volunteers) has hosted 7 wildly popular and successful independent art shows in support of the handmade movement in Dallas. The Bash features hand-picked artists, designers and crafters selling their top quality handmade goods to the public. Additional fun includes live music, entertainment, food, and a full bar. The Bash is home to the famous and original free Bash Goody Bags. While the Bash is a family-friendly event, the vibe is fun and hip – a show full of handmade love and good times. Think of it as a party – not your typical craft show!
