I have some really exciting news that has me scrambling in ‘make-it-work’ mode! I have been invited to install my latest installation “Every Moment Lost is Lost Forever” in Paris, to recreate my installation/performance at the Le Beffroi Cultural Center, in February, 2014! This installation premiered in October at Arte&Arte’s Eros exhibition, an international fiber installation exhibition held in the 17th century Villa Olmo on the banks of Lake Como, Italy. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working again with Arte&Arte, and sharing my work with yet another international audience. But I have to come up with the funds to do this, including the dire need to raise funds for airfare and lodging for 3 performers(including myself)! I also have on the farther horizon in March 2014, the cost of shipping my crates back to the US. SO any help from those that support what I do is invaluable!
So, Please join me at my studio this weekend to kick off the fundraising for an Open House and Studio Sale of more than a decade of artwork, priced at below studio prices (i.e. less than half of purchasing in a gallery)!
Come hang out and have treats, wine, hot tea and cozy candle light (it’s the Solstice, my favorite day!)
Time: 12/21 SAT from 12 – 6pm
12/22 SUN from 1 -6pm
AND after that, BY APPOINTMENT until January 4th, 2014, prices stay low!
Just contact me to set up a meeting.
AT: My studio, the Silver Studio in Columbia City, contact me for an appt.
I have more than 30 professionally framed artist proofs of my photographs for purchase, in a wide range of sizes and prices.
As well as all images are available to order in three different sizes, in limited editions of 25, at discounted pricing from my online print shop, if you order them in person.
I also have done a huge studio and deep-storage clean-out and have unearthed many many “vintage Mandy Greer” pieces available – works that are about 10 years old – at incredibly low prices. Fiber wall sculptures, sculptures, collages, drawings of larger works.
I’ll also have books, and large woven blankets, elaborate neck pieces, hand-knit elaborate and simple cowls, pom-pom necklaces and wrist-let accessories! Something for all….for gifts, for yourself.
..if you enjoy, love, respect what I do, please consider investing in it and living with it!
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP: Many friends have asked how they could help if they don’t want to buy something, if I was going to do a Kickstarter. I’m not this time, for a variety of reasons. If you want to donate to this Italian-Franco project of mine, I would be utterly grateful for any amount!
I’ll have a big donation jar at the Open House, and with any amount donated ($1 or $10 or $100), I’ll make you a pom-pom wristlet or necklace in your choice of color! Poms will be available at my studio in March, when I return.
Another way to help is to join, like and share this event on Facebook! I’ll continue to post preview images on Facebook, so follow me if you’d like to keep up.
If you can’t attend but still want to donate any amount for a Pom-Pom accessory in the color of your choice, you can do that with this link! email me your color.
THANK YOU SEATTLE for the support, and nurturing place to grow as an artist! I’ve been working hard here since 1999 (…unreal!) I am trying to share what I do with the rest of the world, show them what we do out here between the mountains and the sea! And I still need your help and support to make this happen! Please join me for some warmth and beautiful things at my studio this weekend!
