MAKE.SHIFT AUGUST ART WALK: STAY GOLD
An invitational group art show, inspired by Little Golden Books

In the Make.Shift Gallery during the months of August and September, a group of artists created original works inspired by the beloved childhood literary staple, the Little Golden Books series. This exhibit is the brain child of beloved local artist, Steeb Russell, who invited over 15 artists of various mediums to join in his celebration of the classic books that have been inspiring children for decades.
Please join us for the opening reception as part of Bellingham’s art walk first friday in August (8/5). The studios of Make.Shift’s resident artist will also be open as usual. The exhibit runs August 2nd – September 24th and is open to the public during normal gallery hours, Tuesday-Saturday 12-5 PM.
For more information about art walk or Make.Shift please visit our website at makeshiftproject.com or contact Lauren Iida at gallery@makeshiftproject.com.

I'm so thrilled to have a piece in this show! I hope you'll come see it!
