Wednesday and Discoveries
While going through some drawers that hold a mixture of consigned and owned prints, Lou came across some real beauties that I had completely forgotten about. She and I were overtaken by the condition "Print Eye." This condition can be identified in yourself when the world comes to a quiet pause while you stare at a print, taking in the image, the technique, the overall effect. A person affected by "Print Eye" gets a kind of glaze over their face and their breathing comes to a near stop. Not much else seems to matter for a time. We took our time admiring these prints and then we looked at each other. "More people need to see these," I said. I kept thinking about how they had been languishing in the drawers all this time. Lou piped up about finding a way to display them and we came up with perhaps the idea of "Wednesday Salon." That's the day she is here and now she can pull these babies out for anyone to see or purchase. For the most part, these smaller prints are at a very accessible price point. Many are from local artists or artists from near by.
Meanwhile, the real discovery is Lou. We are grateful to have her here to help at Flatbed, and we are especially grateful for her case of "Print Eye."
