Greetings, art lovers! In case you’ve been putting off buying that piece from the MummySam Spotlight Gallery Show that you’ve had your eye on, now is the time to sieze the day! Bit and Bobs, number 5 in our ongoing Spotlight Series will be closing it’s doors (figuratively, of course. Our gallery doesn’t even have a door) this Sunday, March 28. Soooo, if you’re in Chicago, come on by and get to looking, and if you’re elsewhere and wanna look like one of the cool kids with real art on your wall, get to browsing the online store! There are still some amazing pieces that can be yours, including all the work pictured above. And a bird in a boat. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Oh, and in case you forgot what’s coming up next in the Spotlight Gallery, My Paper Crane’s “Seedlings and Sprouts” will be on display just in time for t-shirt weather (we hope), starting April 3rd. Yay spring!
It’s so fun to make little impulse purchases here and there, but there’s something so great about finding that perfect piece that you know you’ll have forever and ever. Here are a few of our new favorites that will surely be your new classics:
We’ve been going crazy here at the shop for these porcelain pieces by Stephanie Kao. Each one is hand-thrown and hand-painted. Seriously, you’ll want to have these forever.
If there’s a better way to spend your money than a hand-blown flask, we don’t know what it is. Think of all the uses! These little guys fit right in your pocket, so you can keep your favorite hooch near you at all times. It just makes good sense, really.
People are always talking about what a great investment a piece of fine art is, but who can afford that? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out these affordable art pieces, like this rad bike painting by Susan Najarian. Or how about a sweet forest painting by iamhome? If you’re more into art you can frame, you could always go for this cool print by Ashley G and Drew. Love ‘em!
We are thrilled to announce our next Spotlight Series, “Seedlings, Sprouts, & Spores” by Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane!!
Just in time for spring, the show will feature works in plush, paper and more! Here’s a couple little sneak peeks to get you excited- We sure are!
There will be an opening reception (free food, free drinks, awesome art!) on April 3rd at Renegade Handmade, so mark your calendar and dust off your favorite spring threads!
Hey Chicago! If you haven’t been in to see the current Spotlight Series show, Mummysam’s Bits + Bobs, never fear– You’ve still got a couple weeks left to come check it out! The show runs through March 28th, so be sure to come on down to get yourself a healthy dose of fabricy, mixed media, Anglophile goodness!
Here’s a couple shots from the show, and the opening reception on February 19th:
We also had to share this adorable photo from the show– Sam/Mummysam herself couldn’t be at the opening since she lives in New York, but she sent her mom to check out the show in her place. (We hope we got the Mum Stamp of Approval!)
Everything featured in the show can also be seen in the online shop, and a couple of these awesome and affordable pieces are still for sale, so get yours before it’s too late!
