Photos from the "Useful and Beautiful" Show...

As some of you may remember, a few months ago I was asked to include several of my designs in a group show in Indianapolis entitled Useful and Beautiful: A Return to Myth and Romance in Art. The show featured a variety of artists working in different mediums, all of which could be considered a modern take on the Pre-Raphaelite aesthetic. I just received some photos of the exhibit, curated by the talented Merle Pace, and wanted to share them...I think Merle did a wonderful job!

The show was held at Big Hat Books as part of the Fall Gallery Tour and received a great review here.
Some of the designs that were in the show are now available in my Etsy Shop.
