The RISD Holiday Sale was terrific yesterday. Complete visual over-stimulation is how I would describe it. Too much beautiful stuff, none of it to be found in your local big box stores.
This was our first time participating and figuring out the logistics was a little overwhelming. We worried about things that didn’t matter, didn’t worry about things that ended up mattering, and somehow we sold a bunch of art anyway!!! Best of all, we met several terrific artists, and reconnected with some we’ve known for a while. Here are some highlights:
For an overview and links to websites (where you can buy cool stuff) here’s the RISD flickr group:
