Back for Another Arts Show

FINAL_habitat_posterI had so much fun at last year’s Habitat for Humanity Recycled Arts Show, I joined the planning committee for this year’s! Having worked as an event planner / fundraiser for the Southwest Land Alliance, I know firsthand how much work is involved in planning an event and how valuable good volunteers can be. That’s why I jumped in this year and created the event poster, solicited donations for the silent auction, helped research venues, will be bar tending at the Artists’ Meet & Greet and showing my work selling my work to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County.

This year’s show is April 24-26 and located downtown next to Dorothy’s Restaurant. Here’s a breakdown of planned activities:

My bottle cap artwork was well received last year, selling 2 of the 3 pieces. I started to think about other things I could create that may not be as physically demanding—I smash the caps with a hammer then nail them to plywood. That idea, coupled with brainstorming a poster design led me to the creation of these flower arrangements.

As usual, I have a bunch more ideas on the drawing board but haven’t found enough time to create them all! Come check out the show, and join me in supporting Habitat’s mission of “Building Houses & Hope in Archuleta County.”
