Small Things for Sale at Eat Your Art Out!

 Carmella Jarvi is the curator for the gallery at Packard Place in Charlotte NC and invited me to display art for sale this Saturday night.

In addition to a selection of my most recent art work, I created a half dozen small works based on the pine cone and needles that work as a group or individually. Four are 8 x 8 inches, and two are 4 x 4 inches. I will also have some of my small sketches that are the designs for my textile art.

I am trying for a range of price points - from $12 for small sketches to $2800 for the largest piece in the exhibition.

It was fun trying to capture the shape and form of both the needles and the pine cone.
 This piece shows the dense echo quilting and a branch of pine needles.  This specimen is from a pine tree that grows in our side garden next to the meadow and shades the blue bird box.

If you are in the Charlotte area Saturday night-- 5:30 - 8:30, I hope you will come out and support this fund raiser (tickets are $20 ahead of time, $25 at the door and children are free with a paying adult).  Tickets cover 2 beers, and 2 food samples and entry to seeing lots of art from over 20 different artists in a variety of mediums.
