Local Show - Julia Veenstra's Square Foot Show

Friends,

How is it approaching the end of November already?

My mind is spinning with the fact that the countdown to Christmas, and year end is already upon us. This is the time when lots of us look back and reflect, and make plans for the next year. While I have been doing all that, taking lots of fun courses on skillshare- I have also been working excitedly on 5 new pieces of work to display at Julia Veenstra’s Annual Square Foot Show.

Julia is an local artist whom I admire greatly, and this show is held at her studio in Hamilton. (167 James Street North) On 11.11 I was doing lot’s of reflecting and anticipating the New Year, when this opportunity quite literally came to me. Of course, I jumped at it.

The 5 pieces will be delivered to the Studio this Saturday and I am absolutely in love with each and every one of the 5 I have chosen. I always work on more pieces that I will end up needing so that I can literally choose the ones that are speaking to me the most- to ensure the collection is full of works that I have a strong connection to, and works that compliment each other. The ones that I do not enter into the show, will be be sold here on my website.

The Square Foot Show is just as it sounds. Julia has hand picked artists to be a part of the show, and each artist is to enter 12” x 12” canvas pieces. Each canvas will sell for $250.00. This is phenomenal deal and a chance for people to get really amazing art at a lower, and more affordable price- just in time for the holidays!

The show begins on December 12, for a ticketed event (which is ALREADY sold out- it sold out the day she posted the tickets in fact!) However, the show also runs through to the 15th so if you are local you will have plenty of time to stop by and see these works in person.

I will be aiming to be there on the Thursday Night, and if anything changes I will update you here, and on social media. I would love to see anyone in person that is able to come- and meet some of you lovely supporters, of whom I am so thankful for.

On a side note, regarding Black Friday/Shop Small weekend discounts- I have decided with the Canada Post Strike to not offer any big sales at this time. I had everything ready to offer hefty discounts on my shop- but after thinking it over I have decided to postpone this sale. I want to save everyone the hassle of shipping. (Canada Post has said there looks to be no end in sight for the strike, and that people should stop sending packages to Canada- and vice versa. They have such a long backlog.) I also want to say- I am not saying anything negative regarding Canada Post workers, they have every right to strike and fight for their livelihood. But, shipping rates from other reliable shipping companies will defeat the purpose of me having a sale price on my work.

If and when the strike is over- I will offer the same discount that I was planning on offering. If there is something that you want, or must have from the shop before the holidays, please email me at hello@laurafedorowicz.com and we can arrange different ways of shipping- and I can quote you for another carrier.

All that said- Thank you again for coming along on my vibrant art journey- I am grateful for each and every single one of you!

Hand Made Pop Up

How is it that summer is now officially over? Don’t get me wrong- I am FULLY ready to embrace fall, and all that comes with it, but that. went. fast!

With the beginning of fall comes some exciting news. I have been accepted as a vendor for The Handmade Pop-Up. I have ALWAYS been such a fan of The Handmade Pop-Up initiative. It is run by Grace Gulley of CYL, and Sam from Maker’s Movement. Together they hand select the best artisans from around the world and curate the prettiest shop you ever did see. (I am so flattered to be one of those artists selected for this years market. #grateful)

Not only is this shop a one stop shop for all your holiday gift giving, but it also donates 10% of all the profits to an education fund. You cannot get better than that!

SAVE THE DATE

Market goes LIVE November 1, 9AM PST

The market will run from November 1 2018 9AM PST and will close November 12 2018 at 11PM PST.

So what do I have planned as products for this market? While I won’t give away all of the details, (what fun would that be) I can disclose that the items featured in this market will be exclusive. The amount of items I have available for sale will also be limited. So when that sale goes live- if you see something you like- for you, or a friend, GRAB IT, DON’T WAIT! You will not find them available for purchase anywhere else.

I am feeling some really beautiful neutrals, lots of movement, yummy brush strokes, and likely some metallic for good measure. I am aiming to have a mix of works on paper, and work on canvas for you to peruse.

I am being secretive, I know! But, don’t despair you can follow along on my instagram and Facebook where I will be sharing some WIP shots, and sneak peeks of the work headed to the market. I cannot wait to share where these pieces are headed.

In the mean time friends, take care of yourselves. Find the beauty in the everyday- in each moment- in the mundane. It’s there- we just need to look for it,

Love,

Laura
