At the market

I wanted to thank everybody who came to the Forks Market to support me and to check out my spring collection. It was 2 days full of meeting great new people and having a chance to show off my work. I even managed to participate in the chocolate festival and taste some incredible chocolate treats. The Forks Market really is an inspiring place to be at. I am planning on being back to sell my work at the Forks a few times this summer by participating in the Outdoor Farmers Market.

If you missed me this week-end and are looking for the perfect gift for mother’s day just give me a call or send me a quick e-mail to arrange a time to come by my studio (p. 204.510.3939, anjastudios@shaw.ca).

Ciao!

Wish I was there

I wish I could have been in New York this week-end for the opening reception of “The sketchbook project” exhibition. It have never not been at the opening reception of an art show that I have had art work in. Too bad. I just have to make it work to go see the exhibit in one of the US cities it’s going to. Maybe Washington DC in April or Chicago in July. I will let you know once I have a trip planned.

Met the deadline

Months ago I had blogged about participating in The Sketchbook Project. I am so excited that I have completed the sketchbook on time and it’s on its way to New York to The Brooklyn Art Library.

Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums across the US.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be available for the public to view.

28836 artists from 94 countries around the world are participating and the tour starts February 19, 2011. It’s like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks.

I have chosen the theme “Below the surface” and in the end it turned into a very personal self-portrait consisting of poems and illustrations. If you are in any of the cities below make sure to check out the exhibition.

Brooklyn, NY, Feb. 19 – 27, 2011 (opening reception Feb. 19)
