My friend Katherine Sandoz is an amazing local artist here in Savannah. It is so neat to live in a small corner of the world with such great talent. Now I understand the sentiments of the Twitter handle @nyisboring. There are plenty of “wide-eyed humans” here in the lowcountry and Katherine is just one of them. This month she is holding a grand sale on her works on paper. By entering the code JUNEBUG at checkout on her online boutique you can receive 60% off.
Her works for sale include those from her time spent in Lacoste as well as many of her characteristic portrait-style works. My favorites include the handful pieces referential to New York City, my previous summer habitat. Below are a few samples. Get grabbing quick!
Handmade on Peconic Bay is a handmade print company by husband of yesterday’s post feature, Cynthia Rybakoff. Matt Shapoff creates beautiful paper products using 19th century cyanotype techniques in combination with 21st century digital design.
Right now Matt has a variety of cards out for the holiday season but I think my favorites will always be his nautical-inspired prints. Matt has an Etsy site where you can accquire some of these mini pieces of art for your very own!
Who knew something so gross could be so…pretty? These “bacteriograms” are by artist Erno-Erik Raitanen who cultivated bacteria cells on a colour negative film.
One of the reasons I love having the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in downtown Savannah is there amazing curation of art and design books. The other week I happened upon American artist, Philip Taaffe’s Anima Mundi and it is now on my list of to-buy’s. Taaffe combines geometry, color, and nature to create new landscapes that keep me mesmerized forever. Read about the original exhibition of this body of work here. And buy the book here.
