Touring the Town!

Thanks to Amy Jarvis of Jackson Creative for the great logo!
Hooray!  Tonight is our third consecutive "Tour the Town", a gallery walk that a handful of us started back in September.  Well, actually, we started meeting in June and after a summer of working on the logistics with the downtown businesses (and NO money), we launched on September 16!  Our first two were major successes and of course we're hoping tonight is no different.

I took October off so I could actually walk the tour but I'm back as an artist tonight!  Tonight I will be stationed at Fond du Lac Seafood Co., LLC and because of that, I wanted to do some fish/seafood-related art.  Here's what I came up with:

Both items were done using handmade paper and my vintage Golden Guides.  The pendant is about an inch square and the clock is 4" square and 1.5" deep, just to give you an idea of scale.

Part of the reason I want to do "themes" (loosely interpreted) is to showcase the businesses that are participating in our gallery walk.  Many of them usually close at 6 or 7 p.m. so for them to stay open until 9 is fantastic.  All of us on the committee want the walk to be as beneficial for the businesses as it is for the artists.

I know this blog post isn't really about Ephemeraology today, so thanks for indulging me.  Here's to a fun evening and supporting local artists - wherever you live!  :D
