spring art sales 5.10.2018

I just finished up with 3 art sales in the last 2 weeks. Whew! It’s a lot of work! Here’s a photo of the lists I make in order to keep myself sane. Each show requires different setup and display supplies, so checking items off the list as I gather them up helps keep me organized.


At the end of April, I participated for the third time in Cattywampus, a sale and silent auction put on by a group of local female artists and crafters, to raise money for non-profits. This time we raised over $3000 that was split between the Dane County Rape Crisis Center and Underdog Pet Rescue of Wisconsin.

Here’s a pic of my setup at Cattywampus. It was held inside the High Noon Saloon, which is rather dark inside, so we used a lot of lights to show off our wares.

Less than a week later, I participated in the biannual Madison Gallery Night, and showed my wares with the other members at Midwest Clay Project.

Member’s pieces were mixed in together, so in this photo, not all the pieces you see are mine. And I only took one photo that night:(

And two days after Gallery Night was the Marquette-Atwood Neighborhood Art Walk, which is a walking tour/sale of about 25 artists. It was my first time participating in this annual event. I had about 50 people stop by. Some were walking, some bicycled, and others drove the Art Walk.

This is the grouping of RESIST, Naked Lady, and Cat cups, mugs and planters. I also displayed information about Potters for Peace, to which I donate a percentage of my annual ceramic sales.
A plate of ceramic hearts painted with acrylic paint, bud vases, and my Blue Splash series of bowls.
Here’s the grouping of porcelain spiral or ribbon series on the left, along with vases and mugs. Like my display of snow shovels and hanging scarecrow? (I re-use him every year!)
This is mainly my Wire Bowl series and Rust series.


And here’s a photo of yours truly with all my wares! Three tables inside the garage and 3 more on the driveway (many borrowed from my lovely neighbors), displaying all the pieces I have to sell! It was great to get all my work displayed in one setting. Several visitors commented on the variety of styles I offer, and my tidy garage;) I’m glad the sales are over for awhile! I’ll be updating my Etsy site in the next month with many pieces that are still available.
