now framed and at the Octagon Shop

It was fun reconnecting with the Octagon Shop in downtown Ames (413 Douglas Avenue, Ames, IA) which is featuring my artwork during the month of October. Plus, my work in the shop is 15% off, now through November 2020.

From their Facebook page:
“The Octagon Shop is a consignment retailer for original handmade works of over 175 area artists. Enjoy a unique shopping experience where you’ll find hand-crafted jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, fiber, wood, cards.”

The shop is open for walk-in customers, with face masks required (see their website for hours and more information), and they have a new online shop to check out! Manager Terrie interviewed me in an enjoyable Zoom call which she recorded and posted on the Octagon’s YouTube channel (an edited version — we talked a long time!).

There are always beautiful things from many different artists at the Octagon Shop and I am appreciative to have my artwork featured among them. Keep an eye on their website and social media to see what’s new, and the Octagon Center for the Arts website to see what’s going on in the galleries and classes.
