Last weekend was Burlington's South End Art Hop. We debuted the new studio on Pine Street, and what a debut it was! 266 Studios enjoyed it's first Art Hop too, and we were right in the middle of all the action. Live art auctions, a literal art hop-scotch in the parking lot outside, comedy next door and a barbecue or two on the corner. What a great way to kick off the end of summer and celebrate all the great creativity that Vermont houses. We're so lucky!!
Getting ready for Art Hop!! The studio featured lovely roses from our Rose Gardener. The scent was amazing! We shared the studio with Carol MacDonald, Casey's friend and mentor. See more of her amazing monoprints here.
|Printing Press had center stage. Behind it, Carol MacDonald's cards, notebooks and sketchbooks were a huge hit!|
|It got pretty busy!! Our peanut M&Ms (a staple at any open house) were gone in just a couple hours!|
|This trendy art lover rushed in at the last minute. She just HAD to have some of Carol's notebooks. They do make perfect gifts. Some are small enough to be stocking stuffers too! The holidays are just around the corner!|
|Casey and Carol, tired but happy! The first Art Hop in the new space was also the first open house, and it was a huge success!|
Even with a thunderstorm and tornado warning on Saturday that cut our afternoon short, the first Art Hop for the new studio was a success. Thanks to our little Square from Apple, we were able to accept credit cards and sold quite a few pieces!
Thanks to everyone who came out for the event! Cant wait to do it all again next year!!
