July 2015 First Thursday Show at Boise Brewing

I got an email back in January that this new community supported brewery was looking for artists to show their work and design their posters and tap handle art for their beer of the month. I contacted them showed them some samples and was assigned the month of July. The opening was last Thursday.

I have got to say this was my funnest First Thursday Showing, so many friends came by to say hi and I had the whole top floor to myself so It was like I had my own private party. This was the second group of guests. On the couch with me are my studio gals, the other couch are my bike riding friends. Thanks to all that came out!

12" x 12" Mountain bike collages with bike parts 

One of a kind collaged cards, keychains and my email sign in book. 
This piece I wound up moving to another wall as I didn't want a rambunctious foosball player to bump into it. This is a collage on a round wooden table top with a bike wheel drilled into it, and it turns. 

You can see where I moved the wheel and I think it looks a lot better. The "glowing" on the bottom left are the posters designed by local artists for the beer of the month. Mine is on the right next to the couch. 
The second piece from the left sold at the opening.

This is the poster and tap handle label that I made for beer of the month. Warm River Wit- named after the smallest town in ID. Population 3. It is a Belgian style wheat beer. I didn't get to try it that evening as it wasn't ready yet. The posters are for sale at the Brewery for $10 artists do not get a portion of those sales but we don't have to pay any commission or fee for having the show.

My pieces will be up through the end of July 2015 so if you get a chance go by Boise Brewing at 521 West Broad St. next to the Boise Weekly.
