In the Gallery: It's a Banner Day

You GUYS. My artwork is hanging in a gallery nearly 3000 miles away and I have the lovely Patti Murphy to thank for it!

You see, Patti and her sister Kat invited artists from all over the world to participate in their "It's A Banner Day" show this month at Hygienic Art Galleries in New London, CT. The sisters wanted to add a collaborative element to their curated show exploring color and symbols. Here's a little snippet from the website:

The Banner Collaboration hopes to engage theartistic side of artists and designers and will also connect them on this website. Each banner is created by a different artist and will carry the theme of "It’s A Banner Day" sharing artful messages of hope, good news, happiness and success. 100% of banner proceeds will be donated to Hygienic Art Galleries.

So if you happen to be in New London this month, be sure to stop by Hygienic Art Galleries through June 29 to check out the show! You can also see more of the super fun banners online at the official "It's A Banner Day" website.

I hope you're having a banner day, friends!

California Redwoods + Steinbeck + Happy Links

Happy Links:

  • I love this list of ways to "get local" while traveling. Anything you would add?
  • Patti Murphy and her sister Kat are launching a collaborative art show and they're accepting submissions from all over the world. I'm thinking about submitting something. Anyone else creating a fun, inspiring banner to submit?
  • Do you all follow the Flickr blog? They call for contributions to a themed collection every week. This last week the theme was "London Calling" and now I want to go. Like, now.

Wrap it Up:

  • I shared a little north coast goodness (including a little glimpse of California's magnificent redwoods) on Monday. More to come, I promise!
  • Mighty Girl Maggie Mason and her life list got me all inspired and I finally posted my Mighty {fine} Life List on Wednesday. I hope you'll share links to your lists as well.

Have a lovely weekend, all!

Tall Trees + Thoreau + Happy Links

attachment-5188fba6e4b0921527f9812d

Well, we've made it to Friday and I'm back with a snap, a quote and a handful of happy links for you. I'm also adding links to all of my posts for the week... you know... just in case you missed anything. ;)

{"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees." // Henry David Thoreau}

Happy Links:

  • Can we just talk about the visually stunning recipes over on The Forest Feast for a moment? So lovely.
  • This post by Megan of The Fresh Exchange about her experience at Alt Summit is so incredibly honest. After seeing all of the "hustle, hustle, primp, wear polka dots, sell, sell, sell" recaps about Alt, I had questioned whether or not I'd ever go. This is a great reminder that not every blog is the same and we don't all have the same goals.
  • I've been following Patti Murphy's Project 365 and am loving her "things to think, believe and do."
  • This video. So hilarious. So ridiculous. So true. {Warning: this is the explicit version. Bust out those headphones if you're living the cubical/coffee shop/co-working life today.}
  • It's been tough for me to stop admiring the work of Nicole Franzen after finding her work in the latest edition of Wayfare Magazine. Just look at her photos of the English Countryside.... {sigh}....

Wrap it Up:

If you missed any posts from this week, just follow the links!

  • Catch my latest GoPro video edit + dirt bike shenanigans + black lab cuteness right here.
  • Read a review of the new Wayfare Magazine here. {spoiler alert: it's incredible}.
  • Remember summer with me in a fun guest post I put together for my friends over at the California State Parks Foundation over here.

Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend, all!
