Georgia O'Keeffe-inspired Artomat collection + a letter from a collector

Special Edition Artwork for Georgia O'Keeffe Exhibit at Reynolda

This year a beautiful local art museum and estate, Reynolda in Winston-Salem, commemorates its centennial.

And this year, Reynolda celebrates by hosting the exhibit "Georgia O'Keeffe:  Living Modern" now through November 19.  

Art-o-mat has a very active machine at Reynolda.  In anticipation of record crowds visiting this exquisite exhibit, many Artists in Cellophane have contributed special editions of work specifically to stock this machine.

At the beginning of August, I began working a batch of Little Inspirations to stock this machine.  I was happy to deliver them to International Art-o-mat Headquarters today.

The special batch of 50 includes parts (either 1/2 or 1/4) of a flower plus an inspiring word in my original hand-lettering style.  

Putting these 50 blocks back together to create this shot was like working a puzzle.

Here are some process shots below of how I went about creating this series.

Letter from Wendy, Art Collector

I recently received a lovely letter from an art collector and educator named Wendy.  

She purchased a tiny piece of a Mondrian painting, like the ones below from my Mini Masterpiece series for Art-o-mat.

You can read her email below.  

Thank you so much, Wendy, for letting me know that this Mondrian Mini Masterpiece met with such an excellent owner.

I enjoy being a part of the cultural phenomenon that is Art-o-mat. 

Please spoil yourself this month by trying to find the closest Art-o-mat machine and if you are in my neck of the NC woods, go see the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit at Reynolda.
