Big Wheels Keep On Turnin. . .

Last weekend Art In The Park yielded one sale of a Now.For.Art shirt, we have 8 dollars as an organization. At least that will be one round of flyers that doesn't come from my or anyone else's pocket. Thank you to our number one fan, who ever you are.

More importantly a lot of really excellent dialog about art, specifically in Northampton, took place at least in the one day + hour and a half I was able to be present. I feel like a lot of exciting things are going to start popping up in Northampton, perhaps finally living up to its (currently unwarranted) tag as being an art hub.

In other news, Now.For.Art will be picking up a couple extra hands this fall, and we will also be implementing a monthly artist's t-shirt series. Featuring a new artist every month, we will show case and sell 3 original shirts, hand printed on organic U.S. made shirts.

Im keeping this vague so I can keep your interest, shit is going to get exciting.

Oh, and pass the word on Papergirl 2010, again mail or drop off submissions to
103 State St Ap. 4
Northampton Ma
See this post, for a few more details.

I will write more indepth about Papergirl in the next few days for those who aren't totally keen on what the deal is.

Art In The Park, Follow Up

So the itinerary for Art in The Park, as compiled by the great organizer Andrew Huckins is quite lengthy to the extent that I don't have the time to re-post it here at this moment.

Im a busy person.

I highly recommend heading over to Facebook and Joining their group, so you can be better informed about what is happening when and where and which artists will be pitching tents in Pulaski park over the 4 day event.

Art In The Park

Next week is Art in The Park, an initiative by the B.I.D. to allow free booth space to artists in downtown Northampton in conjunction with the towns side walk sale.

Brendan McCauley, Eben Kling and myself, amongst many other folks will be present selling artsy goods.

I believe Brendan and Eben will be selling works on paper along with some paintings. I on the other hand will be selling shirts for which the proceeds will go towards NOW.FOR.Art's operational expenses. This is one of three designs, the other two which will miraculously formulate somehow between now and Thursday.

Here's a sneak peak, or rather a lousy photo from my phone.

A full itinerary for the weekend, which will also include performances, is expected late this weekend, I'll post when it comes out.

just be groovy.
