Maryland friends: I’m happy to share that I have some of my prints on display (and for sale) at the Towson Arts Collective holiday show this year!
- Where: 40 West Chesapeake Ave in Towson, MD
- When: Wednesday-Saturday, 12-5pm, now through December 18
- Reception: Friday December 11, 6-8pm — During the Towson Fire and Ice Festival, so there will be music and ice sculptures and more!
I’ll be gallery-sitting and working on some artwork Saturday December 12, so stop on by and say hi.
I saw the other work that was being collected when I dropped off my prints, and it looks like it will be a fantastic show, with a variety of work from painting and sculpture to fiber arts and fine crafts. For more info about the show check out the Towson Arts Collective website.
Can’t make it? That’s ok, I also have my work for sale in my online shops, StephSmith at RedBubble and the Critterwings shop at Zazzle.
I’ll add pictures later when I have some!
As noted in my last entry, I was honored to have my work chosen for display among 70 other illustrators from around the country (and the world!) for a group show during ICON, the Illustration Conference. The opening was this past Friday at the Land Gallery — an awesome little gallery and art shop in Portland, Oregon. It will be on display until August 24, sharing wall space with the likes of Allison Cole, Thomas James, and a boatload of other fabulous illustrators!
Even if you’re not in Portland, you can still take home a piece of the show.
From now until the show closes on August 24, you can buy an 8×10 archival print of my piece above, “Artist at Play” for the low price of $25 plus shipping (usually $5)
Buy “Artist at Play” now at buyolympia.com!
Take another look at the closeups in my previous blog post — or marvel at the blurriness of my photography here (the actual print is not blurry, I promise!)
Last month, I created a new piece for the Work+Play show at the Land Gallery in Portland — a group show in celebration ICON, the Illustrator’s Conference. Here’s a peek at the drawing when it was still in progress on my drawing table. I think this is the fastest I ever finished a piece this intricate — probably because I created it by throwing together all of the things I like to draw the most (except for myself… I’m not big into self-portraits!) and not thinking too hard about it for a change. Although I’m reserving the right to go back and tinker with the colors later….
If you’re in the Portland area, the opening/reception is Friday, July 11 starting at 8pm — but the show will be up for the rest of the month… and for a limited time there will be small prints available.
I’ll post details about that when I get them. UPDATE: Until August 24 you can buy 8×10 prints from BuyOlympia.com. In the meantime, it’s kindofa big image, so click on it to see it bigger, and have some more details below! (also viewable on Behance)
Look what has just arrived: new giclee prints from my Aesop’s Fables series!
These new prints are smaller than the originals, but will also be produced in a limited edition. They were created for this week’s Gallery of Hope fundraiser for the Maryland Melanoma Center. Anything that doesn’t sell by next week will be for sale online… stay tuned!
This November I’m participating in the second annual Gallery for Hope event. Celebrate the Arts is a networking event for charity that includes an art sale and raffle. All donations and a portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the Maryland Melanoma Center. This year’s event is the evening of Friday, November 15th, at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center in Baltimore.
I’ll be selling some of my large giclee prints as well as some of my smaller pieces, I’m donating a print to the raffle, and I’ll be there to say hi. If you’re interested in attending or just donating, visit their EventBrite page for tickets.
Spring has sprung and the flowers are in bloom… in fact, they’re blooming all over the place! At Irvine Nature Center not only are their woodland trails and habitats sprouting, my Flower Alphabet has taken root in in their gallery. With a different flower for each letter of the alphabet, the prints will be on display April 30 – June 9, and prints and notecards will be for sale in their gift shop. If you’re near the Owings Mills area, stop on by to visit their lovely grounds and learn more about nature and ecology!
