Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

 

Email update sent September 12, 2016

Coming right up, find me at the
Bedminster Traditional Artisan Show,  September 17 and 18, 2016. This show takes place at Delaware Valley College, Doylestown, Pa.. I was born in Doylestown, so this show is like coming home! For those of you on my mailing list, hopefully by now you will have received a free show entry coupon for you and a guest. Because of this show I will NOT be at the Ithaca Farmers' Market on Saturday September 17.

 *************

September/October is an excellent time to come by my booth #3 Saturdays at the Ithaca Farmers' Market. The weather is pleasant and parking is much easier. I've had a great season at the market this year -getting people's votes on their favorite pieces, being energized by the process of talking to people about my work, and of course selling my work, the ultimate of applause for an artist. Most Saturday mornings and until the end of the market season I post to my Facebook Friends page and to Instagram (@folkartmary) on the latest news.

 *************

COMMISSIONS: winter is when I like to take on commissions, or special order pieces. Please speak up if you want to run an idea by me and see what I think.

 *************

Later in the year find me at Plowshares Annual Craftsfair and Peace Festival, December 3-4, 2016. The show takes place at Nottingham Highschool, Syracuse, NY.

*************

Folk art, is it a good descriptor for what I do? Any one have any better ideas for categories where my artwork might best belong?

*************

Consider a gift to you or someone else - anniversary, wedding, Christmas, birthday or other special event. Discounts apply to some older pieces, please enquire. Buy on time, I do payment plans. And yes, I ship.

*************

After 43 years of making my carved and painted pictures, artwork keeps flowing out of me. I take pride in improving as a painter. There's never a problem with coming up with ideas. Instead there's just not enough time.

 

*************

Please tell me if you receive multiple copies of this email. I have recently had a problem with multiple emails going out, and I'm hoping it has been fixed but want to know if it is not. Please bear with me if there are continued technical glitches, I only know if you tell me.

 

Blog, blog, blog. Don't be timid, please open the link. There are lots of pictures and a little bit of text. It's an easy way for you to see what I am up to and to show others. I especially encourage you to subscribe to the blog and have postings sent to your email whenever they come out. When you subscribe to the blog I have no idea who you are, you can browse anonymously. I regularly post this blog at my facebook friends page.


Thanks for reading. Please pass this email on to any interested friends, Mary
