i rec'd a note from Alex McCarty recently – she's a talented painter and local art friend i met in 2005 when we were both launching new businesses. we fell out of touch (even tho she lives 2 miles from me) when she went back to work – but she tells me she's back in action and jumping in with both feet! yay Alex!
she's coordinating Crafty by Nature - an exciting new indie showcase in Adamstown, PA at Shupp's Grove, which is an outdoor vintage & flea market. Shupp's has allocated a great section of the grove to host a monthly craft show of up-and-coming indie designer, crafters, artists & makers. lots of newspaper ads went out this week in philly, bethlehem, pittsburgh, reading, baltimore, DC, NY and NJ.
the details were ever-so-recently worked out, so now she's doing a big push to get the word out! if you're interested in showing your work, here's some info:
- shows will take place every first sunday of the month, may – october.
- shows will be juried, and spots must be reserved in advance.

hooray for PA art venues – way to get something new rolling, Alex!
