JUNE 2015 UPDATE (brief!)
[A.K.A. Where my (Molly Block) art work & creative-reuse work can be found in person, in addition to being found online on Etsy in the Molly Block Finds shop here, & on Facebook here.]
Recent past happenings in May 2015:
I was a vendor at the Vintage Market Days in rainy McKinney, Texas, on May 8 and 9 – and it was fun! Thousands of people attended the event, despite the rain. And they purchased items there! Plus, I met two women whose fathers owned two of the Dallas businesses that have extant vintage signs that I’ve photographed.
At Texas Art Asylum in Houston: A signed, framed print – an 8″x8″ print matted to 12″x12″ of the “Vacant Victorian” image you see above – sold yesterday, May 30, at Texas Art Asylum in “Show Stoppers,” An American Horror Story-themed show. Artwork sold there benefits Houston’s Center for Recycled Art. Yeah! (Someone at Texas Art Asylum was nice enough to take this photo of the artwork yesterday.)
A small print of mine was included among other small works of art available to supporters of Houston-based DiverseWorks’ annual Luck of the Draw fundraising event. (Here’s a photo I took at the fun event.)
I participated in Houston Center for Photography’s print sale last weekend. And I had a great time! And a bunch of nice photography-lovers bought a bunch of prints! If you purchased one or more of mine, thank you! (Some photos from HCP’s event can be seen on HCP’s Facebook page here and here.)
Saturday and Sunday, June 13-14 — Pop Shop Houston’s annual Summer Festival, at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards Street, in Houston — Pop Shop Houston’s Holiday Market in November 2014 was the first market at which I sold prints of my photos, and I had such a great experience that I’ve participated as a vendor at one or more markets each month since then! Pop Shop Houston’s upcoming two-day indoor market will have everything from clothing, jewelry, furniture, food, home decor, and art items — including gallery wraps and framed and unframed prints of my photos, plus pieces of my upcycled film jewelry — to items for children and pets, and more, at 90+ booths. Also: Music, food trucks, and more. For details, check out the Web site:
After that, I’ll be taking a break from participating in markets, and I hope that some of my work will be available via one or more galleries.
P.S. My house *still* is outfitted with a sophisticated security system that includes security cameras and other motion-detection gear and alarms, plus a strong man who’s very adept at using weapons, in addition to a large, loud, easily angered dog, plus very watchful neighbors. So burglars: Stay away!
