Yay!! Posters are here! Actually, they’ve been here for some time, but I’m finally just able to get off my lazy end and take a picture or two. Kris Johnsen and Meagan Anderson (who will be setting up their wares at The Thaw on May 12!) spent some quality time making yet another work of art for us to share our event with the world.
The posters are for sale in the Etsy shop, and you can send me a message if you’d like a listing created with no shipping fee and you can just pick it up at the sale. Purchasing these posters at $10-a-pop (what a deal!) really helps to support the time and effort that goes in to the creation of our Big Thaw event. If you need any more incentive, just know that they are gorgeous, three-color screen prints on a Spring-y green french paper as the background — Kris and Meagan also used a ‘split fountain’ on the sky, which is why you get such a nice gradation in the blue sky.
Some people have asked why we’re so crazy to spend time and money on a limited edition, hand printed event poster when just a flyer would do. The answer? We really care about quality work, and we also really care about artists working in our community. Even though we only have 100 posters to sell and post around town each one of those packs a real punch. This time it’s a deer, squirrel and birdy punch. Pow!
The Big Thaw arts, crafts and vintage sale will take place on Saturday, May 12 at Mayo Street Arts Center at 10 Mayo Street in Portland, ME from 10am to 4pm. We hope to see you there!
