From Powderhorn

Gridwalls & a window into my past

Thanks to my pals at Vine Arts Center for pointing me to Accent Fixtures, one of my favorite stores in Minneapolis, and saving me a road trip to Hudson  WI and ton of money.

I need a gridwall

One of the great joys of The Art Business, is finding new (to me) tools, techniques, and ways to display and sell my work.  The combination of seeing a gridwall-well-used at Powderhorn Art Fair and having one at the Walker Cat Video Festival persuaded me that I needed at least one gridwall for art shows.

Success! In one quick trip to Accent Fixtures, I got 2 gridwalls, 2 sets of gridwall feet, and lots of gizmos with which to hang stuff on them. Each gridwall was $20, and they fit nicely into The Art Car.

Look through the grid and see some of my past

Look through the grid and see a set of vintage car ads that hung on my office walls from the long-ago days when I worked in the car business.

New Art: Cards and Tiny, Original Paintings

I have lots of new cat images because I’ll be at the 4th Walker Cat Video Festival on August 12 at the new Saints’ stadium.  New cats! New birds! New abstracts ranging from calming to crazy!  Cards are $4 each and tiny original paintings that fit into 5×7 frames are $15 each. I know that everyone doesn’t have space for 4-foot paintings. But everyone (and this means you!) has space for 5×7 inches.
