So, sweeties, I have some bad news.
The original "Scenes from Capitol Hill" series of mini paintings I did for CakeSpy Shop is nearly 75% sold out! That means you missed out on many sweet original paintings, including the three pictured below, which are all now owned by people other than you:
But you should know that I'd never say something mean like "sucks to be you"--especially since happily, I have good news, too. I've done some replacement pieces which are now up in the gallery, including, but not limited to:
But if original art isn't your thing and you want some sweet stationery, why not check out these totally sweet new Toasties Getting Toasty while toasting marshmallows notecards?
And believe it or not, that's not all. There's even more awesome coming to CakeSpy Shop next month: a show featuring work by Kris Garland entitled Suspect + Fugitive! It features pop culture icons made from...well, largely food! For instance, "Dill Bert"--that is, Bert, made of Dill--pictured below left.
Here's the 411 on the upcoming show:
"Suspect and Fugitive" is a companion show to the 365 blog
(suspectandfugitive.com) of the same name. All pieces in the
series are composed of suspect (questionable) and fugitive
(nonarchival) materials. Kris Garland, the artist behind the
blog, has been making nonarchival pieces since 1996 when
she learned that she enjoyed silk screening with nail polish.
She has since moved on to working with food items as that
is what she typically keeps in the fridge.
Artist reception: Thursday, June 10, 2010, 5-8 p.m. at 415 E. Pine St., Seattle WA 98122.
The items still left in the Capitol Hill Series are available online here; the Suspect and Fugitive artwork (and cards and prints) will be available in the store starting June 1!
CakeSpy Shop + Bluebottle Art Gallery, 415 E. Pine St., Seattle; open Tue-Sun, 12-7 p.m.
