Upcoming Art Sale

Or, "Help Me Clean Out My Studio!"

Or, "Studio Blowout!"

My neighbor 2 houses to the north (Paul Damon) is an artist and works part time as a manager at our great local art store (Wet Paint). For the last few years, Paul has had an "art sale and garden tour" at his home in the summer. His wife has transformed their yard into a giant "native plant garden," so she shows that off as Paul sells his paintings inside the house. I've stopped over the last few times during his sale, and it's always really well-received by the neighborhood.

Paul talked to myself and another artistic neighbor, and we all teamed up for a 3-person "Art Sale / Garden Tour." Here's the front and the back of the postcard that Paul just dropped off to advertise our 3-person event:

I'm using this as a "studio clean-out sale." I have a lot of framed work left over from the mini-exhibition at Kernal Days last summer:

And I have some pieces that recently came down from being on display at the Nash Gallery in Minneapolis:

So I'm going through my studio and finding loose prints and framed work that I know I can part with, and I'm setting my prices at "sellable!" So mark your calendars:

Friday July 15th: 5 pm - 9 pm
Saturday July 16th: 11 am - 3 pm

345 Cleveland Ave N, St. Paul, MN 55104
(me - photography)
355 Cleveland Ave N, St. Paul, MN 55104 (Paul - painting)
393 Cleveland Ave N, St. Paul, MN 55104 (Kelly - jewelry and stained glass)

We're all within a block of each other (all on the west side of Cleveland), and we're just a few blocks off the Cretain / Vandalia Exit on I-94:

View 345 Cleveland Ave N in a larger map and/or get directions

Hope to see you there. Or, I guess I should say "Hope to see you HERE!"
