The Buckman Arts Show and Sell

Wow! Have we been busy! In addition to our wholesale and online endeavors, the Portland Saturday Market is back in full swing and, last week, we participated in the Buckman Arts Show and Sell. Which means, we did two shows on the same day! Yikes! We just received a nice note from Mary Bradshaw at Buckman, which reads:

Hello everyone - I wanted to take a moment and quickly thank all of you for donating a piece of your work to the Buckman Art Show and Sell Silent Auction. You should have all received a receipt for your donation except for a few that are being mailed out today. Please let me know if you have not received something by early next week. The show was a smashing success. We were able to raise over $2000 on the silent auction alone. When combined with the proceeds from the Art Show and Sell and the Buckman Bash we were able to raise over $40,000 which goes directly to supporting our arts and music programs. Everyone on the Art Show and Sell Committee and especially myself as the silent auction coordinator want to thank you for your generosity. I hope you enjoyed your participation in the show and hopefully will be back next year! Please let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy the rest of your spring!

The "Dance" collage shown above is from a new writing journal cover that we created especially for the Buckman show.

ETSY item of the day:

Our featured Etsy item of the day comes from artist KatHannah of Pennsylvania. We love so much of the work in her Etsy shop, it was difficult to choose just one, but we are particularly fond of this one, entitled Jetaime -Mae and Bebe:

You can purchase a print of this lovely oil painting at KatHannah's Etsy listing .

Thanks for supporting Etsy Artists!
