We are abstract artists: I (Alicia Philley) am a painter and my co-artist Emily Hoyt Weber creates sculptural wall hangings. Our two-person show at Link & Pin Gallery has been an amazing opportunity to create new work--conversing with each other about light, shadow, line and color. This show is a huge leap for each of us, taking ideas and techniques that for years we've worked on separately and bringing them to new levels by discovering the places of convergence. The purpose of making a professional catalog to accompany this show is threefold. First, to offer viewers and patrons a less expensive option to take home a piece of our art and enjoy it even after the show comes down. Second, to give Emily and me new avenues for stating our ideas by having support from a professional art writer and art photographer. And third, to better market ourselves to galleries and public art spaces, presenting what we have created and giving the managers of these spaces a better understanding of our creative voices.  The images below are of completed works or works in progress that will be in our show and possibly the catalog.

Risks and challenges

Emily and I have been working all year to make sure we finish our artwork for the show with enough time to complete the catalog as well. We have already scheduled photographer Philip Rogers for the end of August, which will give us a week to lay out the catalog once we have his edited images. Our arts writer, Emily Cayton, has met with us in studio to discuss our project, and we are excited to have a second meeting just after the photo shoot so she can see our finished works together. This will also give her a week or more to write. And finally, we've researched printing companies and have a clear understanding of when we need to send them the catalog layout in order to receive the printed copies before the opening date of September 26.

Budgeting has also been very important. As working artists making objects, our materials and studio costs are always the starting point. This Kickstarter campaign will help us manage the catalog costs, which include paying our photographer, writer and printer.

    Assemblage Art Box

    This is the first of what I hope to be many assemblage pieces made from the detritus of my painting process. Using masking tape to create every line on my paintings leads to a lot of colorfully painted, tendrils of tape strewn around my studio (and often stuck to my shoes). I've started using more care to save them, sort them and this piece is the first result of a new practice in my art making!

    A 12" x 8" x 4" Wood box, paint/stained like my wood panels, filled with the curling, painted masking tape that was used to create the works for this gallery show. A glass panel keeps them in place and protected. This is my first time to show or sell one of these pieces and I'm just throwing it out there as a sneak preview to all of my current and hopefully future backers!

    Check out update number 3 or message me if you want to see a photo.
