The recent silence is not indicative of inactivity on my part. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The past weekend was spent making some amazingly delicious whole wheat carrot cake cupcakes for a bake sale, trying to finish the nursery, and attending our last baby shower. In between all of those activities I also managed to work on some ID exclusive pouches for a new venture I am taking part of.
The Female Art Collective (FAC) is a Louisville-based group of (yes) female artists. While the group is based here, not all artists reside in town. I think I saw some from Portland, Oregon and somewhere in California (both places very dear to my heart!).
The group does sell online at their website and is also planning a host of shows and events in the next few months, the first of which is sure to be a great time.
FAC is hosting a benefit show right here in Louisville on August 8 for the New Roots organization. New Roots seeks to bring fresh foods to urban environments that otherwise wouldn’t have much access to them (ever heard of the “food desert”? I suggest doing a little Google search on that term. You’ll learn something new today)
And to bring this back to why I am writing, Irene Design is one of the new artists that will be making a FAC “debut” at the Aug. 8 New Roots show! I promise to give you all a sneak peek at what I have been up to, but that won’t be for a few more days. For now, feast your eyes on the art already being presented at the FAC website, check out their Facebook page, and if you’re in town mark your calendar for the evening of August 8!
