Signage: Dilworth Artisan Station

Dilworth Artisan Station is an old building in the historic SouthEnd neighborhood of Charlotte, and is home to working artists' studios, interior designers, and professional offices.  This summer, I worked with the buildings owners, twin brothers Bob and Dick Fuller of Crossland Studio, to design a marquee listing artist studio tenants. Fred Hutchinson of Fred Vinyl steered our material selections, fabricated and installed the sign. (Thanks, Fred!)

Earlier this year, I designed window signage for Crossland, an architectural antiques restorer, and my client Anne Neilson's new gallery in the building's ground floor.

Dilworth Artisan Station: Holiday Open House

I was honored to provide marketing support to another great Open House event by the artists, designers and galleries of Dilworth Artisan Station.  Their 2010 Holiday Open House was a fun night of enjoying food and beverages (provided by generous sponsors), browsing open studios, and an art raffle benefiting CMC's Rare and Complex Cancers Fund

Organized by clients K. Interiors and Studio 21 Gallery, the event included a number of other incredible artists that call the Southend building their professional home -- Anne Neilson, Angela Nesbit, John Seibels Walker, Crossland Studio, Pamela Freeman, Miriam Durkin, Lita Gatlin, Hacker Studio Gallery, Paul Hastings, Sharon Hockfield, Heidi Kirschner, Kris Kuchavik, Leonor Demori Neisler, Bobby Underhill and Christine Brunnemer.

We promoted the show inexpensively using email marketing, facebook, posters, a limited number of printed invitations, and word-of-mouth through the client bases of the participants.

Artists and Galleries donated 40% of the evening's art sales and 100% of art raffle proceeds to the Rare and Complex Cancers Fund.
