Pendleton Final Friday is this week-December 17th. I posted that notice on my Facebook page yesterday and a friend replied- “What day is Final Friday”? So, let me be perfectly clear-Final Friday is THIS FRIDAY at the Pendleton Art Center from 6-10 PM in downtown Cincinnati. Valet parking is available. People tease the PAC artists because of the inexpensive boxed wines that are served for the typical Final Friday open studios. Well, think about it, if you were serving 500-800 of your closest friends in hopes of luring them into your studio to see your art, you would serve wine, right? However, you wouldn’t serve the good stuff month after month-that would not be fiscally responsible. However-that being said, this month is special in STUDIO #315. We will be serving a great selection of wine and food this month! There will be appetizers, good wine, and until they are gone-special iced sugar cookies that are soooo good! Mark and my BFF Cathy are throwing a birthday bash for me. When asked where I wanted my birthday celebration to be held, I decided what better place to hold such an event than our studio at PAC. It is large and I won’t have to clean the house. I won’t worry if someone spills something on the floor and there is a huge bar. Plus, I love being surrounded by art. Also, if a guest gets bored, they can go look at someone else’s work. Perfect!!!
To add to the mix, Mark has recently installed the coolest dartboard cabinet ever. It is 86″ high and made from reclaimed shutters and wood. You have to see it. There is just enough of the old paint left on it so give it a red finish. On a normal Final Friday there would be room for a game of darts.. I doubt if that would be a good idea this week. Add to that, SARA PEARCE will be in the studio debuting her new greeting cards for sale. This is the first time Sara has shown these images to the public. They are beautiful embellished recreations of vintage cards. You will want one or a dozen!
SO, please feel free to crash my birthday bash! We would love to see you. Studio #315; and, did I mention, it’s on FRIDAY?
