RAW Current Wrap-Up, Upcoming Shows

If you get our newsletters, you know that I like to describe RAW Artists shows in two words – Art Party!

The Current show in Richmond, VA this past Thursday was no different. It was at the Hippodrome, which is a beautiful venue. I love the Art Deco look of the place, and the interior is just as gorgeous. Setup went well, and I finally got a chance to try out my new lighting kit! I think it looks pretty good, don’t you? Also, this is the first time Brian was able to show with me at a RAW Artists show, which was a huge help.

I decided to debut some new scarf pins there, along with a bunch of new pendant styles. I want to get them up for sale here on the site soon, but with three local shows in the next three weeks, I might be a wee crunched for time.

Speaking of, if you’re local to Pittsburgh and want to shop in person, I’ve got LOADS of opportunities for you! First off is Shop in Shadyside, which is a multi-weekend event that kicks off on November 29th, AKA Small Business Saturday. That’s when I’ll be there with my goods. Right after that is the Sweetwater Center for the Art’s Holiday mART. It’s a weeklong sale of local artists’ works, and some of my jewelry will be in the mix.

For those of you who don’t dig the craft fair or gallery scene, there’s an art party for you! Yep, I’m doing the Holiday RAWk show on December 10th. You can buy tickets for it on my artist profile page. Some people have had trouble in the past buying tickets (there’s no button, and the text is small), so here’s a handy-dandy guide for where to click on the page to get them. Like the image says, tickets are $15, but they go up to $20 at the door. There’s a cash bar where you can put that extra $5 you save to good use!

Will you Shop Small on the 29th? What are you looking to buy? Tell us!

2014 Holiday Season Shows

The Holiday Season is upon us, so you can bet that we’ve got a bunch of shows coming up! We’re going to be BUSY.

First off, we’ve got two RAW Artists shows coming up, one this month and one in December. If you’ve never been to a RAW show before, they are nothing like your typical art show. There’s music, runway shows, films, dancers, paintings, photographers, a cash bar – It’s pretty much an art party! Tickets can be purchased through an artist’s profile page. I’m not selling tickets for the show in Richmond, but my fellow Yinzers can buy them for Holiday RAWk by sending me an email. We can use Square or PayPal, and after the Current ticket sales are over you can get them through my RAW artist profile.

November 20: Current – Richmond, VA
December 10: Holiday RAWk – Pittsburgh, PA


I also have two other Pittsburgh events that I’ll be in, with the first happening in Shadyside on Small Business Saturday! If you’ve not heard of that, it’s the Saturday after Black Friday, and the goal is to support small, local businesses on that day in lieu of shopping at the big box stores in your area. If you’re too tired from Thanksgiving to even venture out in the days after it, that’s okay – It’s happening again later! I won’t be at the next ones, but you can support your local small biz people all the same.

November 29: I Made It! Market – Shop Small in Shadyside

If your holidays weekends are as busy as ours, you can still shop small. My work will also be in the Sweetwater Center for the Arts Holiday mART. There will be lots of other goodies there for the art lover on your list, and it runs for a whole week!

Holiday mART Info & Times In addition to our upcoming Sinclair Jewelry holiday shows, we’re even doing an event for Brian’s new book! We’re going to be at the Steel City Con with copies of his book to buy and some merchandise to go with it. It’s a three day event starting December 5th, and it’s perfect for getting your geek shopping out of the way.
