Springtime is supposedly almost here, and around my studio it's all about getting ready for the Farmers' Market season and planning shows for the year. We open again on the waterfront in early April, and I'm excited to be back with a fully stocked booth. If you're not a local, my cards and paper ephemera are always available online here, at Handwork in Ithaca, and at several other fine retail establishments around the country (here's a list). I also just updated my online catalog and order forms, and included a link to download an order form for my colorful tiles on the "order forms" page! You can find a list of shows on the "events" page.
One of the projects I'm working on one this winter is the Stewart Park Carousel. Myself and another artist are giving those hard-working horses a new coat of paint. It's a big and fun and glorious project, and we will be working in several locations around town. I am currently working on the horses at the History Center in downtown Ithaca through the end of April, you can find me there most Tuesdays and Thursdays during their open hours. You can see photos and get updates on our progress on our blog! We are fundraising for our time and work, and you can donate to this project at the Friends of Stewart Park website. We are hoping to have all of the horses painted and ready to ride when the carousel goes back up in the spring.
