In the Studio with Jessica Tenbusch

Last week I got to visit our September artist, Jessica Tenbusch in the studio while she prepped some of her luxurious objects for our show. I first discovered her work during a post for DIYpsi and was taken with how beautifully organic her pieces are, as if they sprung from nature themselves. 

Much of her work is derived from animal parts but she only uses objects that have been found deceased or gifted by friends and family. Jessica is a master of melding materials and creating surfaces that are at once awe-inspiring and slightly macabre. In her "menagerie" that day, I got to see skulls of deer, coyote, raccoon, possum, a few teeth, casts of cicadas, and other various insects. 

I was in awe of the myriad of hammers and supplies in general that Jessica uses for her metal, plaster, woodworking practices. She is truly a jack of all trades.

From conceiving the idea on paper to creating the real thing, this piece   includes such materials as   resin, wood, cicadas, cast bronze and various metals  .

Check out Jessica's intricate jewelry for purchase at her Etsy store, equilibria. And save the date September 4th, 2015 for her opening party with her exhibit running the entirety of the month, September 1-30, 2015.  We can't wait to unveil the exceptional craftsmanship and splendor of her work. More to come!

Press Releases and Publicity: How You Can Get Some

One of the most valuable lessons I learned (or rather, taught myself) during my years at the gallery, was how to garner press and publicity. Since the internet has vastly changed how media is consumed, an article is golden because it lingers, ready to be shared with your audience at the push of a button.

Here are just a few samples of articles printed as a result of press releases I wrote and distributed as well as a published article I wrote for Antiques & Fine Art Magazine. Because publicity builds the idea of "good faith" in a consumer's mind versus ads that are bought, they generally bring more traffic and more sales to our clients, making them a valuable asset to any company.
