When I first opened my store (handcrafted gifts made by 140 local artists), I featured an Artist of the Month. It lasted about a year and for no reason passed by the wayside. Six years later, I am reconstituting the idea, with an added feature of raffling off an item made by the Artist of the Month. Anyone can stop by the store – anyone can stop by the store ANYWAY! – and sign up for the free raffle, no purchase necessary. Depending on who the Artist of the Month is, there may even be a workshop held sometime during the month, depending if the artist makes something that can be taught. Below is the first artist I am featuring. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
The Artist of the Month is
Anne is a fiber artist and designer. She loves to use yarn and fabric as a medium to create all sorts of interesting, beautiful, and whimsical things to wear. Anne has been exploring the concept of recycling and reusing materials. Using odds and ends of scrap yarn, she knits them into hats, scarves and sweaters. Anne came up with her idea to make T-Skirts out of a bag full of old favorite T-shirts. Her over-dyed T-Skirts have elastic waistbands and come in 2 sizes: small/medium and large/XL. There are 2 designs: flared or tiered. Normally sold for $125, at Blue Cloud Gallery they are $79.
Warm fleece wraps and ponchos are another of Anne Shuman’s specialties. She embroiders them and decorates them with bits of yarn. When the cold winds are blowing inside or out, you’ll be snugly warm with one of her creations wrapped around you. They are enough to chase your winter blues away! And at $79, you can buy one for mom! One size fits all.
