Thanks Thurmond Goins for creating this....

Sunday, July 8, 2012

I'm finally getting around to printing the 50 plus found silk screen that I got from a print shop going out of business two years ago.  Thurmond Goins and I have an exhibition in August at the Clayton Center in Clayton, NC.  Both Thurmond and I paint as well as print.  For the exhibition, we both decide to have our prints on exhibition.  Some will be collaborations and some will be our own weeks.  Here is an example of a found print assembles we are working on together.   I'm titling my exhibition "Disorganized Organization".

Bottlecap Keyrings

Over the weekend I set up Friday night at Deep South the Bar and on Saturday I set up at the Saturday Market.  Cheerwine is my most popular Bottlecap Keyring and I ran out so I made more Saturday afternoon.  Thanks for your support!
