Greg has been busy!

May 12, 2012

Greg has been busy recently, creating a group of the cutest birds for the garden (I am trying not to steal them for our garden) and little jelly fish (which I admit I might have to steal the pink one).  He has also made a couple of elephants, which I love.  He tried elephants previously, and struggled, but something has clicked this time, because they are really great!

We are still trying for 54th and the Monon, but we haven’t actually gotten confirmation.  We did get confirmation for the Festival of the Arts in Brownsburg, which is on 7.21.12.  The bad news is though that we decided to not have an open house this year.  Our work schedules have not allowed us the time to get the property ready for a proper open house, which is sad.  Instead though, we are going to try to focus our time (and by “our time”, I mean Greg’s time. he! he!) on getting inventory up and talk to some galleries to get him into.

Here is a picture of one of the jelly fish, but be sure to hop over to our Flick account to see all of the recent additions.


I just sent off the application for the Brownsburg’s Festival of the Arts, scheduled for July.  We haven’t done any shows on the west side of Indy, so we are looking forward to expanding our shows out. 

For our regular shows, I am keeping track of the Art Fair at the 54th and the Monon Shops show, but they haven’t posted the application yet.  In addition, we plan on being at the Carmel show in September again, which we always look forward to.

And the one that has me already worried with getting the gardens in shape is our open house again.  We had one two years ago, and wow!  that was a full-time job getting the property in shape!  It was a lot of fun though, so I decided that we should do it again.  Time to get out in the gardens to start getting them ready.

Greg has been busy with putting clocks together lately.  There is one hidden in the studio now that I will be bringing to work next week to “test” (of course my idea of testing is bringing Greg’s clocks to work and then “forgetting” them there, since I like them so much.  He! He!)

Well, time to go work on our Flickr account.  Check it out when you have a chance.  I have been cleaning it up to hopefully make it easier for you to find something in particular.

Great Indy Star article!!!

October 15, 2011

Greg was featured in the Indy Star in late September.  Both Dan, the reporter, and Zach, the photographer, did such a great job showcasing Greg and his work.  It was a really exciting opportunity, and it’s been neat getting comments from people who recognize Greg from the article.

Check out the link below for the article and pictures!

What time is it?

August 21, 2011

Well, Greg has been hard at work getting ready for his show in September.  He had made a couple of really neat clocks out of old hubcaps last year, and he has decided to look into making other clocks.  It has been a challenge with trying to reuse clock mechanisms, but it has been fun seeing what he comes up with as ideas.

Here are two that he has finished recently.  I will be “borrowing” the second one for my office at work.

Hi!  It’s Dawn.  With everything going on with Salvaged Beauty and “real life”, Greg and I are going to share handling the blog, to try to be sure that we stay on top of it.  So, let me catch you up!  SoHo is going great; we continue to showcase new pieces every month.  Stay tuned for new pictures in the next week or so of some great new pieces that we just dropped off there.

We have also been in discussion with a new business venture down in Franklin, Indiana.  We have mostly stayed up north of Indianapolis with the shows that we had done to date, and we had been having discussions of moving to other areas.  An opportunity came up for a new shop opening in September down in Franklin, and we are currently working with the business owners.  Stay tuned for more details.

Now, show-wise, we have had to cancel our August show, but we still plan on being one of the artist-in-residence in September through the Carmel Old Town Antique Mall.  As always, we appreciate Roman and Linda’s support and invitation for this every year, and we look forward to it.  Which means that Greg has been quite busy though, as this is always a successful and wonderful weekend for him.

Today was the “Meet the Artist” at SoHo!  The gallery looked great!  Here are some pictures of new works currently on display.
