“Fall Frenzy” was almost called ‘Three-Day Flurry of Phenomenally Fun Finds for Art-Loving Friends” but that is a bit overboard! So what, really, will be happening here at Art & Frame on Main during October 23 through 25?
First, visitors will find some wonderful ‘orphaned art’ on display and up for bid in a 3-day silent auction.
Pictured above is an original watercolor by Marshalltown resident and educator Ruth Zahn, now deceased. A significant body of her work was given to a friend and then subsequently inherited by Barb and John Hand. Works by other noted artist will also be on the ‘Orphaned Art Auction’. Yes, once you’ve placed a bid, you can text or email to stay connected.
Second, during the 3-day ‘Frenzy’ we will accept special orders for items from 3 of our favorite gift sources: Vilmain, Maruca, and J.Devlin. Feel free to peruse their websites, knowing that you can place your order with Art & Frame on Main, save 15% off website prices, and enjoy free shipping with pick up in store.
Vilmain is a Rhode Island company that creates tiny treasures from pewter. Every item has a potent mix of inspiration, whimsy, and function and is elegantly packaged. We especially like their photo props, however ANYTHING in stock in their 2017 collection would be available for special order. Check out the website: http://www.vilmain.com
Maruca is well-known for hand-crafted purses, totes, and wildly popular mini-bags. Made in Boulder, Colorado with textiles woven for Maruca alone, these exceptional products become wearable art! We have samples of their 2017 Fall/Winter fabrics to help you choose your one-of-a kind bag. See more: http://www.marucadesign.com
J.Devlin glass products have been a staple here at Art & Frame on Main for over 10 years. Treasure boxes and picture frames are mainstays with us and make wonderful gifts. Again, you’ll want to look at their entire collection of home accessories, and let us help you choose the perfect special order items for gifting or for your own home: http://www.jdevlinglassart.com
“Fall Frenzy” will give visitors additional opportunities to rev-up excitement for holiday gifting:
- See recently arrived new artwork
- Leave some Santa hints
- Sample a variety of dip mixes
Note our extended hours ’til 6:30 pm each day, Monday through Wednesday, October 23-25. Hope to see you!
